If Only They Had A Gun

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

Orlando, FL Woman Raped at Knifepoint by a Home Invader

A man reportedly broke into an apartment on Semoran Blvd in Orlando, Florida, while armed with a knife. The man, whose face was partially covered by his shirt, is said to have held a woman at knifepoint before raping her. The victim was able to provide police with a description of her attacker, although he remains at large. 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.
