If Only They Had A Gun

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

Wendy’s Manager Stabbed in Elgin, IL

A manager working at the Wendy’s at 1001 Dundee Ave. was stabbed in the parking lot outside the fast food restaurant at about 9 p.m. Friday night, police said. A suspect described as a Hispanic man in his early 20s reportedly stabbed the manager, a 33-year-old Carpentersville man, with a knife at least once “in the chest area and in the liver,” an Elgin police spokesman said.

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.
