If Only They Had A Gun

Cases where a having a gun could have made all the difference

New York Woman Robbed and Raped by Armed Attacker

The woman was attacked by a man with a silver handgun on 123rd street after she left an ATM machine. The man, thought to be in his 20s, forced her behind a building where he then robbed and raped her, according to New York police. Police said the suspect in this case is different from the two suspects wanted for multiple sex assaults in southeast Queens over the last six months. More information here.

In the above situation, and countless others, innocent people have been harmed by the action of a criminal. 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.
