If Only They Had A Gun

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

Home Invasion and Robbery at Knife Point

City of Poughkeepsie, NJ Police are looking for two men who committed a home invasion robbery on Fox Terrace at 10:15 a.m. today. The victim woke up to find two armed criminals in his apartment. The suspects threatened the victim with knives and stole cash and jewelry before fleeing, police reported.  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.
