'Breakfast with the devil' story (Va. legislature gun story) "no portion of the story is verifiable"

She said one of her constituents, who is 82, awoke at 2 a.m. to the sound of someone breaking of a window at the funeral home where she lived. The woman, a sharpshooter, pulled a pistol and confronted the intruder as he was coming in the window, Crockett-Stark said.

"So she grabs him up. She puts the pistol under his chin. She said ‘do you want to eat breakfast with the devil?’" Crockett-Stark said.

Virginia Lawyers Weekly said in a Feb. 27 blog post that they had called around to legal professionals to see if anyone knew of the case, but no one had.

The weekly newspaper noted that Jack Harris, executive director of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association, put a query on the group’s listserv to see if anybody had heard of the story.

The lack of detail, such as when or where the break-in happened and who was involved, leave us with nothing to submit to the Truth-O-Meter. We cannot prove or disprove anything the lawmaker said because no portion of the story is verifiable.


--thoroughly researched (read the article) No one has ever heard of this story let alone the accused suing the grandma.... COMPLETELY MADE UP --
