If Only They Had A Gun

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

Fatal home invasion in Chicago

Christopher Jackson, 32, allegedly forcibly entered an ex-girlfriend’s home in Chicago’s Douglas Park neighborhood armed with a gun, police said. He allegedly fatally shot Gonzalez’s current boyfriend, Robert White, and stabbed Gonzalez several times, police said. An order of protection had previously been in effect. 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.
