If Only They Had A Gun

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

Citizen with his hands up shot by robber

Adam Mapleson, 26, of Rayleigh, told jurors he tried to help a security guard at Rayleigh station in May 2007. He said he saw a robber running and body-checked him. He saw a gun and put his arms up but the robber opened fire. 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.
