If this woman looked out her window, saw someone trying to steal a sign from her yard, and then shot the would-be thief dead, she is in big trouble and deserves to be.

Of course, if you have a low IQ and low impulse control, you may find yourself committing murder if you are provoked beyond measure. As for example, this gentleman:
Of course, we might have expected the New York Times or the Washington Post to have headlines like ‘Joe Biden supporter shoots dead 5-year old who rode bike’, but somehow, this horrible incident seems not to have been reported by Reuters, The New York Times, or The Washington Post.
