Police say a man tried to steal gun to `rescue Terri Schiavo'
SEMINOLE, Fla. Police in Florida have arrested a man they say tried to rob a gun store so he could rescue brain-damaged Terri Schiavo (SHY'-voh).Police say the man entered the store yesterday with a box cutter intending to steal a gun so he could "take some action and rescue Terri Schiavo."
They say he had driven down from Illinois Wednesday and had visited the hospice that's been caring for Schiavo.
The owner of the gun store says the man broke the glass on a couple of display cases and told him, "If I wasn't on Terri's side then I wasn't on God's side, either."
