NJ Man In Critical Condition After Home Invasion Shooting

A Pemberton Township, NJ man was reportedly shot by an intruder who broke into his home at approximately 2:30 a.m. The victim, Trashan Rushing, is being treated for a gunshot wound to the head that has reportedly left him in critical condition. His young children and other relatives were reportedly asleep in the home when three criminals who were wearing hoods and masks broke into the home and 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.
