Jury Selection Begins For Deadly 2003 Home Invasion

Jury selection begins today in the case of a man who’s accused in a violent home invasion in Washington County, PA that led to an elderly woman’s death back in January of 2003. Police reportedly say Mark Fisher, 23, posed as a utility worker to get into the Peters Township home of Freda Dale and her husband, Shannon. Fisher allegedly tied the couple up, demanded money and beat Shannon Dale, then 91. 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.
