If Only They Had A Gun

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

Mother and Small Children Held at Gunpoint During Home Invasion Robbery

Police have reportedly made one arrest after an early morning home invasion at the Coolivan Apartments off Sixth Street in Lexington, KS. Police have reportedly charged 31-year-old Lashonda Martin with 1st degree robbery. Officers say they are still searching for three other suspects who broke down down a door at the apartment building and held a mother and two small children at gunpoint inside during the robbery.

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.
