when a woman can't get her guns back

today in court i witnessed something odd... sure i witness a lot of odd things in court, but this one i doubt i will be able to forget.
the elderly woman stood before the judge requesting her guns be returned to her. when the judge brought up the fact that her husband is convicted felon she started to cry. when the judge also pointed out that she has had several run-in's with the law, she started to sway... not in words, but in body. she laid her head down and before i knew it.. she was on the floor.
the judge stood up and called a recess.
the woman didn't get the guns.
i got to take an early lunch.
the woman walked out of the court without help.
