CT Man Shot by Home Invaders Who Didn’t Like his Belongings

A 39-year-old man was shot by one of of the three robbers who forced their way into his home on South Marshall Street in Hartford, CT, as he was returning home, police reportedly said.  The criminals then proceeded to ransack the man’s home. One of the home invaders was disappointed by the man’ belongings, and shot him. 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.
