As states across the country move to take away our second amendment rights, a man protecting a 12-year-old from a possible rapist proves why we need it.
Louisville, KY — Every time we hear the argument about "how society doesn't need guns to protect themselves" another example surfaces of a member of society protecting themselves with a gun. Recently, on NPR, a guest claimed that she didn't understand why someone would need a gun because she had never heard of anyone preventing a crime or defending themselves with one. Obviously this is a complete farce, not true, and as the incident below illustrates, it happens quite often.
Tina Burton explained to WDRB this week that she was horrified when she woke up around 7 a.m. on April 14 to a text from her daughter saying that 38-year-old Donald Oliver was in her room — getting naked. He'd broken in, made his way to the 12-year-old's bedroom and began stripping as if he was preparing to rape her.
