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

CT Man Shot By Criminal During Home Invasion

Police said they are searching for a man in his 20’s who broke into an apartment on Wethersfield Avenue in Hartford this morning and shot the resident. The victim was taken to Hartford Hospital with three bullet wounds. He is in critical condition, police said. The home invasion at 469 Wethersfield Avenue. The suspected knocked on the door of apartment A2 and kicked it down when no one answered, police said. The victim tried defending himself with a sword and was shot. The suspect fled in an unknown direction.  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.
