Purse in Florida Shooting for Auction, then Removed

Panama City Beach, FL (AP) - Bidding on a purse a woman used
to try to disarm the gunman at a Florida Panhandle school board
meeting had reached more than $1,000 before eBay removed the
listing.

Ginger Littleton sneaked up behind the gunman and used her brown
faux crocodile handbag to whack his arm. Though she wasn't able to
disarm the gunman, the purse became a hit, and it was briefly up
for auction on eBay.

The proceeds were set to go to a charity run by Mike Jones, the
district security chief who wounded the gunman before he killed
himself. But eBay removed the listing Friday night because it did not
meet all the legal requirements for a charitable listing.

WJHG-TV anchor Joe Moore, who was running the auction for
Littleton, says he's confident they'll be able to meet eBay's
guidelines and get the auction back up.
