Serial rapist suspected in Chicago sexaul assault

Police believe that the rapist responsible for a sexual assault early this morning in the Logan Square neighborhood is also behind two other attacks. The latest sexual assault occurred at about 2:30 a.m. today on the 2100 block of North Maplewood Avenue, near the the Blue Line’s Western Avenue station as the victim was on her way home. The other two attacks, which are believed to be related, occurred on the 2300 block of West Moffat Street on February 5th, and on the 1700 block of North Marshfield Avenue on September 26th, according to police.

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.
