If Only They Had A Gun

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

Bakery Owner’s Wife Shot by Disappointed Robber

Lucy’s Sweet Surrender is the last remaining bakery on Buckeye Road in Cleveland, Ohio. It is well known for its Hungarian treats, and loved by neighborhood residents who lament the closing of the other Hungarian bakeries. Now the owner is considering closing shop due to brazen armed robbery that left his wife, Marika Feigenbaum, shot and pistol whipped. Marika was in the baker when an armed robber entered and demanded that she open the safe and give him large amounts of money. Marika truthfully responded that there was no safe, and that only small amounts of cash were on hand.  Enraged, the robber pistol whipped the woman’s head and shot her in the shoulder, then fled.  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.
