Man Charged In 1997 Rape and Murder

Aarion Johnson, 28, is reportedly charged with murder in the death of Susanne Stoffels, who was found dead in her home on Ross Street in November 2007. Police say Johnson had broken into the home and raped Stoffels before killing her. Johnson is currently serving a 70-year sentence on previous rape and burglary charges. 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.
