If Only They Had A Gun

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

IL Man sentenced to 13 years in rape

DuPage County judge has reportedly sentenced a man to 13 years in prison for raping a Woodridge woman, then leading police on a car chase that ended when he crashed into an elderly couple’s living room in Hinsdale. The woman that 29-year-old former Aurora resident Joshua Colwell reportedly plead guilty to raping had an order of protection against him at the time he committed the crimes. 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.
