If Only They Had A Gun

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

Bethany police looking for rape, kidnapping suspect

A manhunt is under way in Bethany as Bethany police, Oklahoma City police and US marshals look for a man accused of kidnapping, beating and raping a woman earlier today. Ivan Harrison, 22, is believed to have kidnapped a woman at gunpoint on N Rockwell Avenue in Oklahoma City at 4:30 p.m., said Bethany police Lt. Phillip Wise. 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.
