If Only They Had A Gun

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

Second Suspect Arrested in Acid Throwing Robbery

Two robbers allegedly threw a caustic liquid on a woman’s face during an armed robbery in the 2900 block of West Altgeld Avenue in Chicago, at about 6:30 a.m. on July 28, Shakespeare District police Capt. Marc Buslik said. After the attack, the robbers fled with the woman’s property. Esperanza Medina, a 48-year-old social worker, was left with third-degree burns over half her body and underwent a series of skin grafts.  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.
