Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I am trying to get my lawn to look nice, but we are in the middle of a Stage 1 drought and it has brown spots. Any advice?

Answer: You should consult with Lawn Care Blog Watch on this one, but one thing you may need to do is get your checkbook out and stroke a $200 check to your homeowners' association. HOAs will fine you for brown spots on your lawn, drought or no drought. (UPI, Woman fined $200 for dry grass in drought)

2) Question: I am a 71-year-old man. Two guys at the Internet cafe I'm seated in just pulled out a gun to rob the place and ordered everyone to lie on the ground. Will I get charged with anything if I open fire on the robbers with my own weapon? 

Answer: Are you in Florida? If so, you may avoid any charges. (Daily Mail, Stop or the senior citizen will shoot!

3) Question: I am an 82-year-old man. Will I get in any trouble if I point my fingers like a gun and threaten bank employees?

Answer: Oh yes, you could be charged with making terroristic threats. Put that finger gun down! (ABA Journal, Elderly Man Accused of Pointing Fingers Like a Gun at Bank Employees Sues over His Arrest)
