If Only They Had A Gun

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

Bike Path Rape Suspect Arrested

Troy, New York police have reportedly arrested a man in connection with a rape on a bike path that took place over the summer. Stephen Pluff, 24, is reportedly facing several felony charges including rape and unlawful imprisonment. Police say a woman was riding her bike when a man riding in the opposite direction reached his arm out and knocked her down from her bike, raped her, then fled on his bike. 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.
