I found the following heartbreaking story on the NRA Website. It is a very tragic example of what happens if ordinary law abiding people are left defenseless against intruders, robbers and other lowlifes that pray on them. It is these stories that make me angry at the gun control advocates that want you to believe that unarmed and defenseless people make for a safer world.
It makes me angry that these gun control folks trample heartless and cold-blooded over dead innocent crime victims and their families to achieve their political agenda, using fabricated statistics and outright lies about the danger of gun ownership and the supposed spread of violence.
As you read the tragic story please remember that this is by no means a single case. Tragic scenes like this happen everyday somewhere in North America. Violent crime is on a rapid rise and more so in cities and towns where firearms are banned for self-defense.
A woman is on the phone with 911 to report a burglar in her home. Dispatchers hear gunshots, then silence. When deputies arrive, the caller is dead.
Her husband arrives a few minutes later, only to be told that his wife had been shot dead by a burglar. News reports say "he collapsed and started to cry, saying "No! She just called me. You lie."
The real lie is that gun control and gun bans make us safer. All they do is put innocent people at risk of violent criminals. In 2005, the FBI says there were more than 2,000,000 burglaries in this country. There were also more than 400,000 robberies. If you were one of the millions of victims of crime, would you not want the option to defend yourself with a firearm?
Gun bans like Washington, D.C.'s only affect the law abiding. They don't disarm criminals, but they ensure that residents are left with one option: call 911 and hope helps arrive before it’s too late. And sadly, we know all too well how that often works out.
