WHY I CARRY: Two Men Charged in “Appalling” Murder of 2nd Grade Teacher in PA
Here is another one of our “Why I Carry” stories. These stories, unlike our defensive gun use stories, take a look at situations that may have turned out very differently if the victim(s) had been armed. These stories are the “other side of the coin” so to speak and serve as an important reminder as to why it’s important to take responsibility for your own personal safety.
In this story we see why it’s important to either carry at home, or at minimum keep a firearm in a readily accessible place.
According to CBS News:
A teenager and another man have been charged in what prosecutors are calling the “grisly” murder of a sixth-grade teacher in her home.
Nicole Mathewson, 32, was found dead on Monday after she failed to show up to work.
“It’s an absolutely devastating crime. It’s grisly. We’re not going to go into the details, exactly how she was killed. That will come out at an appropriate time. It’s appalling,” said Lancaster District Attorney Craig Stedman, according to CBS affiliate WHP.
As always, I have to point out that a firearm may or may not have helped prevent or stop this crime. However, I prefer to have options whenever possible over simply begging for my life.
