If Only They Had A Gun

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

Bicyclist Stabbed in Concord

A bicyclist was stabbed by one of five men who attacked him in a residential neighborhood late Monday night, police said. Officers were called about 9:55 p.m. to the intersection of Tilson and Nicholas drives and found the 18-year-old man with stab wounds to his abdomen, said Cpl. James Carroll. He was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive his injuries. 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.
