A man has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly dousing his 77-year-old former landlord with gasoline and lighting him on fire early Tuesday in Chicago’s Woodlawn neighborhood. Donald Hardy, 28, of the 800 block of East 65th Street, was charged Friday afternoon with attempted first-degree murder, according to police News Affairs.

Had there been an armed, law abiding citizen in the area, tragedy may very well have been averted. Americans use guns for self defense every 13 seconds, and that is perhaps the best reason to have a gun. These people are certainly glad they had a gun for self defense.
