If Only They Had A Gun

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

Stalker Runs Ex Girlfriend Off the Road and Kills Her

Police said that on Tuesday night in Colorado, 35-year-old James Martin followed his ex-girlfriend, 34-year-old Amber Cremeens, after she left the gym. When she realized that he was following her, she called her current boyfriend. He then called 911, and tried to help her drive to safety. However it appears that Martin was able to run Cremeens off the road, and then fatally shoot her. 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.
