Chicago Man Charged with Home Invasion and Stabbing

Kenneth Shaffer, 53, of the 1300 block of West 115th Street was reportedly charged Friday morning with home invasion and aggravated battery, according to police News Affairs Officer Daniel O’Brien. Shaffer is a convicted felon with a “lengthy” arrest record, according to O’Brien. Shaffer allegedly broke in, despite burglar bars, and attacked a woman was in her bedroom.  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.
