By now you've probably heard about the Michigan woman who pulled out a gun in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Auburn Hills and fired shots at someone running from the store with a security guard chasing them (details HERE.)

And experts interviewed Wednesday doubted the shooting could have been justified.
And that, my friends, might just put her in jail.
