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

Suspect Arrested In Rape and Burning Of Elderly Woman

Police have arrested a door-to-door magazine salesman accused of raping an elderly Grand Prairie, TX woman and then setting setting her on fire. The 78-year-old victim was assaulted Monday at home, doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire. Brimmer said the woman was hospitalized Wednesday with second-degree burns. Her name has not been disclosed. 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.
