She also shot him. The shooting is harder to explain. Maybe she was cleaning the weapon and did not realize it was loaded. She could have pointed the gun at her boyfriend’s (or ex-boyfriend) head and pulled the trigger to see if it was loaded. (The gun, not his head.) She may have been as surprised as he was that it was actually loaded. Now who has not done that at some point? It happens all the time.
The prosecutor said that she drove 1000 miles using gas cans to fill up so she would not have to stop at a gas station. Of course, gas stations have cameras. That I can understand. After all, my wife does that if she is not wearing makeup.
I watched that new comedy series, Family Tools. There was a scene involving a nail gun. Other shows replay this scene so often that it is starting to bug me. If you have ever used a nail gun you know that you cannot pick it up and use it as a weapon. It has a safety feature built in so that the
tip must be pressed against something for it to operate. I guess you could bypass the safety by using some duct tape or something to hold back the safety but you cannot run into a construction site, pick up a nail gun, and shoot someone. Nails are not aerodynamic. I do not think a nail gun would be very accurate as a weapon. I wish screenwriters would stop doing that. Other than that, I enjoyed the show.
