If Only They Had A Gun

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

Man Sentenced to 41 Years for Kidnapping, Murder

Judge James Hackett reportedly ordered Kevin Scott to serve 34 years for a murder conviction and seven years for aggravated kidnapping, with the sentences to run back to back. Earnest Walker of Alton, IL was found with his throat cut. 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.
