American Gun Ownership: The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms
At a time when gun control advocates appear intent on painting lawful gun ownership as a danger to society, and the Second Amendment as little more than an outdated protection of a person’s right to hunt, it’s important to remember the regular role armed citizens play in defending inalienable rights.
Far too often, those who disagree with supporters of the Second Amendment and firearm-related policies resort to assertions that we simply care more about our guns than about the lives of innocent people, and that the right to keep and bear arms has little beneficial purpose in modern America.
This makes it all the more important that we continue to emphasize the important role lawful gun owners play in the immediate and regular defense against crime.
We now see firsthand that Police officers will not always be there when you need them. They respond to calls of those who are already in peril, or to a crime scene after the offense has occurred. As these stories from last month will show you, the first line of defense against crime is by those who are prepared when a crime occurs.
So once again, we have a few examples from last month of people with guns that did not want to become the victim of a crime.
