If Only They Had A Gun

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

Australian man stabbed in his own bed

The 43-year-old was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital after allegedly being stabbed twice in the chest and slashed on his arms. Police have arrested a 31-year-old man. Police said the incident took place in Bilson St about 8.30pm. It is believed two men went to the house following a dispute with the alleged victim earlier in the day. “When the pair arrived at the house they called out to the resident and then went inside,” Sen-Constable Wayne Wilson said. They spoke briefly with the man before they allegedly produced a knife. After the attack the two men fled. 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.
