PANAMA CITY BEACH, Florida Bidding has resumed for a purse a
woman used to hit a gunman at a Florida Panhandle school board
The host website eBay had stopped the auction on Friday because
it didn't meet the legal requirements for a charitable listing. But that issue has been resolved and the brown faux crocodile handbag is again up for grabs.
Its owner, board member Ginger Littleton, used the purse to whack the gunman's arm. Though Littleton wasn't able to disarm Clay Duke, the purse became a hit.
Proceeds are set to go to a charity run by Mike Jones, the district security chief who wounded the gunman before he killed himself.
As of Sunday evening, bidding had reached $1,275. The auction ends Tuesday morning.
