If Only They Had A Gun

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

2 Shot in California Church

Police are searching for a hooded gunman who horrified the congregation of a California church when he paced the aisles then pulled out a gun and shot two teenagers. No arrests have yet been made in the Sunday shooting at New Gethsemane Church of God in Christ in Richmond, California, according to police. The gunman and two companions walked into the church, scanned the pews and fired about five shots, hitting a 14-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man, as about 100 people looked on, police say.

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.
