If Only They Had A Gun

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

Woman found strangled to death in Markham

A partially undressed woman was found strangled to death in Suburban Markham yesterday morning.  Police say that Sheila Nelson, a 47 year old woman from Harvey, was found murdered in a wooded area, near 160th Street and Oakley Avenue just before 10AM on Sunday.  Nelson was strangled to death, and a belt was around her neck.  An investigation is underway to determine whether Nelson was sexually assault, and police believe that her body was dumped in the wooded area from a car.  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.
