If Only They Had A Gun

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

3 Charged in Elgin, IL Home Invasion

Two Elgin men and one Poplar Grove man have been charged in a home invasion in which the victims were bound and robbed at gunpoint. One victim was injured. Police said Donell J. Lyle, 22, 1055 Byron Lane, Elgin, Frederick J. Neal, 34, 100 Bounty Lane, Poplar Grove, and Daniel A. Feliciano, 20, 2407 Daybreak Court, Elgin, have each been charged with two Class X felonies for home invasion and one Class X felony for armed robbery. Bail for each was set at $500,000.  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.
