It Should Have Been a Defensive Gun Use: Bronx Machete Attack Edition

“A 59-year-old woman was fatally attacked by a man wielding a machete in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx on Sunday afternoon,” nytimes.com reports. “’It was a very gruesome crime scene,” a police official said. “Very. Incredibly. Very bad.” Specifically . . .

“She had lacerations to her neck, cheek, shoulder,” the police official said of the victim. “She had a partially severed left hand and a completely severed right hand.”

The police said that the man, who was in his 20s, had confronted the woman in the building where they both lived, in what appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

It’s too bad that New York City denizens have been denied their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Too bad as in a tragedy of epic proportions. For Carmen Torres-Gonzalez, her family and friends and millions of residents. Perhaps NYC concealed carry permit holder Donald Trump would like to point this out.
