NYC prevents Minnesota murder victim from defending herself.

New York laws allow criminals to be better armed than the law-abiding citizens they terrorize by not allowing good people to pack heat. The pro-criminal laws have horrible consequences:
NEW YORK -- An aspiring actor and playwright from Minneapolis was shot and killed as she confronted an armed robber during an early morning street holdup, police said.

Nicole duFresne, her fiance, and another couple had just left a bar in a trendy section of the Lower East Side early Thursday when they were approached by four or five men, one of whom demanded money.

Witnesses told investigators that one of the men grabbed for the other woman's purse and duFresne intervened, asking, "What are you going to do, shoot us?" One of the men then fired one shot at her, police said.

DuFresne, 28, died from a gunshot wound to her chest.

The robbers ran away. No arrests have been made.
If the Left allowed the right people to carry guns, NYC would be a safer place. The victims would have had to break the law in order to level the playing field with criminals who regularly carry guns. At the very least, street justice would have likely been served in the form of two dead criminals. It could have saved Nicole's life.

Jail is not deterrent for desperate people. Fear of immediate death is. If NYC allowed good people to carry guns, the stories of the armed citizenry fighting back by snuffing out perpetrators would speak to the criminals in language they can understand.
