If Only They Had A Gun

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

Star College Softball Pitcher Nicole Ayres Stabbed to Death

A star college softball pitcher was reportedly stabbed to death, and a suspect in the case was struck and seriously injured moments after allegedly confessing to the crime. 28 year old Stephen Headley was reportedly charged with the murder of 22 year old Nicole Ayres, whose body was found on a soccer field in Southhampton Township, NJ early on Monday, with multiple stab wounds to the head, neck and back, authorities say. The relationship between Headley and Ayres is still not clear, 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.
