If Only They Had A Gun

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

SC Home Invasion

Police are reportedly ooking for a suspect in a home invasion Wednesday in the Snowden, SC community. About 11:30 p.m., a resident opened his door after a knock and several people forced their way inside, said Sgt. Steve Meadows, police public information officer. The criminals reportedly tied up the man, fired a weapon into the ceiling, hit him several times in the head, and then demanded money. 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.
