If Only They Had A Gun

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

Man Sentenced to Life in Prison For Child Rape

A man on was reportedly sentenced to life in prison after he kidnapped and raped a 5 year old girl. Matthew Cook Casey, 37, kidnapped the child from her Williamson home on Dec. 14, 2006 and raped her in his car, accoridng to a release from U.S. Attorney Chuck Miller’s office. Earlier that day, Casey raped a 55-year-old woman in South Williamson, Ky., the same release indicated. 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.
