This is the knee jerk reaction politicians had to this case...
She went out of danger, went to the garage, grabbed a gun, came back in the house, and fired a "warning shot". If they wanted to make a difference in that case, I think they should look into their mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines that tie a judges hands as opposed to legalizing warning shots.

Well, even if you point at the sky, there's a possibility that the bullet will come down somewhere that you didn't want it to.
Instead of coming up with stupid crap like this, these legislators need to be worried about keeping the roads smooth and level, and making sure ACTUAL criminals get punished for ACTUAL crimes.

Making it legal to do something stupid, and then removing liability from said stupid action is even stupider. Anybody that actually fires a 'warning' shot is the most stupidest of all.

Hitting a 3" moving target at 21 feet while pumped up on adrenaline isn't easy, especially if it's covered by baggy saggy pants.

I notice there isn't any quotes from the ex...could it be that his statement doesn't jibe well with hers? The fact that she left the house-where he was-got into the car and found her gun, and THEN came back inside to fire the 'warning shot' speaks volumes to me. She may not have been trying to kill him, but she wasn't fighting him off at that point either.

Ignore this post and forgive me. I was looking at it from a LEO perspective since it's a matter of Policy almost everywhere and addressed in all manner of training. And I can't think of a single reason why a citizen would want to fire a warning shot. With non-LEOs, there is so far as I know no law or policy addressing the issue of warning shots, neither making it legal or on its face, illegal. However, as a non LEO, it's a really, really bad idea. It happens, though...these are called "misses."
