All who are anti-gun and want the second Amendment repealed - read this and honestly ask yourself IF this woman had NOT been a legal gun owner what would have happened to her and the public????

Nice to see a happy ending. The victim is unhurt and several criminals are arrested.

Good for her!

Note: I don't recall any responsible person calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

What would have happened to her? You seem to know going by the title of this thread.

I'm pretty sure most criminals don't murder the occupants of the house when caught inside.

Don't let that fact stop you from exaggerating and trying to scare people about the risk of crime.

Here is a very interesting article about the history of the National Rifle Association:

Trayvon Martin and America’s Gun Laws : The New Yorker

It is long, but worth reading.

So you'd be inclined to rely on the good graces and kindness of these criminals as you lie on the floor and beg for your life then?

guns are the only device that stops thugs.
police reports after they rape & kill u are of no use at all.
unless u have seen it happen, the concept of owning a firearm is nonsense.

Are you willing to take that risk?

If someone enters MY home at ANY hour uninvited, and I don't know them, I'm not going to hand them a questionnaire or look for polls on the chances of being murdered.

Stupidity at its finest!
