Had the victims of these killer monsters owned a pistol, I'm sure things might have turned out differently for most of them!
The author of, Serial Killers: The Growing Menace, seems to believe that there are hundreds of serial killers on the loose, here in the U.S. Some feel this is an exaggeration. I believe it's quite possible.
I've tried to find statistics for active killers on the loose in the United States, but have been unsuccessful.
I happen to live close by a country that has a serial killer, or killers that have raped and murdered over 400 young girls. I'm sure these murderers wouldn't find it too difficult to cross a river with its few puddles of water.
So, are you against the right of the people to bear arms? How would you defend yourself, or your family, without a firearm, if one of these guys broke into your home? Think dialing 911 will save you?
In order to obtain a firearm, I'm all for a thorough background check, and safety training.

It was the same with the swan in the Hofgarten. I used to stroll at night through the Hofgarten very often, and in the spring of 1930 I noticed a swan sleeping at the edge of the lake. I cut it's throat. The blood spurted up and I drank from the stump." - From the confessions of Peter Kurten
In 1982, Kennesaw, Georgia passed a city gun ordinance that required heads of households to keep at least one firearm in their homes. Crimes against persons which include homicide, rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and burglary, plummeted 74 percent the first year, dropped another 45 percent the next year, and has remained notably low ever since, despite a doubling of the population. From 1983 to 1993, armed robberies averaged a mere 1.6 annually, rapes 1.5, and murders (none with firearms) 0.2.
