If Only They Had A Gun

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

Man sentenced to 30 to 60 years for the brutal rape of a 77-year-old

The victim said the assailant ripped off her clothes, raped her, then gagged her and bound her wrists and ankles with a bra and scarves. The assailant stole $85 from the victim’s purse and, in a final insult, stomped on the elderly woman’s chest as he left. The judge called this “one of the most horrific crimes” in her memory.

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.
