On Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, an Illinois woman used a gun that had been sitting in a side table drawer for 15 years to save her sister’s life. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch published an article detailing the events in which an intruder forced his way into the woman’s home, proceeded to choke her sister and demand money.
The Post-Dispatch received the woman’s reaction, which only reiterates what was already addressed about gun owners in a previous article in this column.
“I wish I hadn’t shot him. I gave him an opportunity to leave. I wish he had left without me having to shoot him... I hate the idea that I had to pull that trigger.”
Still, she added:
“Put in the same situation, I would do it again.”
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number one.
The Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner invites readers to share any gun related self-defense stories with her, so that they may be shared with others. She can be found on Facebook or contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
