If Only They Had A Gun

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

Joliet, IL Man Found Stabbed to Death

Alfredo Preciado-Ortega, 22, of the 500 block of Scribner Street in Joliet, was found dead with 23 stab wounds to his chest and back about 3 a.m. this morning in Joliet. It is the first homicide of the year in the southwest suburban city.  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.
