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

Man Critically Stabbed in Lincoln Park Car Wash Robbery

Police are searching for a man who stabbed his former co-worker during an armed robbery Saturday morning at a Lincoln Park car wash, on Chicago’s north side. The victim, a man in his 30s, was stabbed about 8:29 a.m. at a car wash at 1415 W. Shakespeare Ave., police say. The robber was the man’s former co-worker at the car wash and fled with an unknown amount of cash, according to police.  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.
