If Only They Had A Gun

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

3 Killed 3 Injured in University of Alabama Shooting

Huntsville, Alabama police say that a female professor at the University of Alabama opened fire on her colleagues at a biology faculty meeting.  It is alleged that the professor, reportedly identified as Amy Bishop, opened fire after she learned that she was being denied tenure.  Three faculty members were killed, and three other people — two faculty members and one staff member — were taken to Huntsville Hospital, with injuries ranging from serious to critical. 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.
