The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that happened in Zephyrhills Saturday night.
The incident happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. at a home on Armstrong Street.
According to investigators, 45-year-old Frank Harrison showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s house armed with a rifle.
Deputies said Harrison had previously threatened his ex-girlfriend. She opened her door and shot Harrison, killing him.
Investigators have not charged the ex-girlfriend, as they believe the shooting is a case of self-defense.
In a case like this, deadly force seems to have been necessary. Especially after he brandished a shotgun. She feared for her life and only acted out in self defense.
Incidents like this show why it is so extremely important to practice your second amendment right to bear arms. If she hadn’t had a gun, then the headline could have read completely different today. Instead of a news story about a woman shooting her ex-boyfriend in self defense, it could have been about a woman who was shot in a domestic dispute with her ex. People would have said, “If only she’d had a gun…she may have been able to protect hers.”
However, she did have a gun and she did protect herself. That is what the second amendment is all about.
