If Only They Had A Gun

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

Unarmed Man Shot By Home Invaders

A 31-year-old Texas man was wounded after three criminals forced their way into a home in the 1800 block of Caldbeck Lane in the Cambridge Falls subdivision, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Terriann Carlson. The intruders broke into the house through the back door shortly after 2 a.m. while the man and three women were in the house, investigators said. The occupants were forced to the floor and tied up. As the three ransacked the house, the man tried to run out the back door but was shot in the upper back. 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.
