If Only They Had A Gun

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

Gunman shoots father and son at Dallas office building

Police say that a gunman shot a 63-year-old man in the legs and his 39-year-old son in the neck at a business they own on the third floor of a Dallas office building. Dallas Police Lt. Andrew Harvey said the gunman pointed his gun at arriving police, who fired at him and missed. The suspect then shot himself, police said, causing critical injuries. “This is not a random offense. They were targeted. The suspect knew both of the victims,” stated Lt. Andrew Harvey. 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.
