If Only They Had A Gun

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

Man robbed and pistol whipped during home invasion

A man who ran a barber shop out of his home in unincorporated Redwood City, CA was reportedly pistol-whipped and robbed Wednesday night. Gilardo Mendoza, 43, reportedly suffered a head wound after the incident at his home on the 500 block of Hurlingame Avenue in the North Fair Oaks neighborhood. 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.
