If Only They Had A Gun

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

Woman kidnapped and raped in Kansas City

A 28-year-old woman told police she was raped today by a man who attacked her as she was getting cigarettes from her car in her driveway. The incident began about 3:10 a.m. near 18th Street and Elmwood Avenue. The woman said the man forced her into the car at gunpoint. They drove several blocks away and parked, where the man raped and sodomized her. After the woman bit the suspect’s cheek, the man fled. The victim drove to a patrol division station and reported the crime. 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.
