11. Depends

If he tried to discourage Annie Oakley from dispensing frontier justice, he has my sympathy.

If he bought her the gun and taught her to use it "any time someone gives you shit," I'ma just gonna laugh.

We don't know the scenario, but I know which one is more likely.

9. Her husband needed this hassle

Like a hole in the head.

Maybe he could parley this into a country song “you left me with a hole in my heart when you put a hole in my head”

The story isn’t very clear on who followed who to that home, nor about who was driving, but I’ll go out on a limb and say pulling a gun and shooting was an over reaction.

The consensus of Forum Hosts agree this is not important news of national interest, but rather, more appropriate for the General Discussions Forum.
