Home invasion: Teen ’stabbed women then fled’

Police say an unknown male broke in to a home in Roslyn Avenue about 4:40am on Friday. He was confronted by two females, aged 21 and 16, and allegedly armed himself with a knife. The 21-year-old was stabbed in a the upper thigh while the 16-year-old suffered stab wounds to the foot and leg. 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.
