Babysitter Accused in Armed Home Invasion

A baby sitter accused of taking part in an armed home invasion appeared in bond court on Monday morning. Janette Martinez, 22, and her boyfriend, Fernando Luis Gaston, are reportedy accused of invading an FL home and pistol-whipping the resident on Saturday night, whose 7 year old child she reportedly babysat. 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.
