"You Don't Need a Gun, Just Call 9-1-1"

That is the mantra of the pro gun-ban folks.

Calling 9-1-1 didn't work so well for this lady. It took the cops 48 minutes to show up. She was dead when they got there.

How pathetic. I'd like to think a gun would have saved her....but I know a lot of women who so fear guns and do not familiarize themselves with the use, that they would not use one fast enough. But that 911 op, now, there is someone who should be jobless!

If the girl only barely got time to call 911 before the assailant was on her, it seems unlikely that she would have had time to clear a firearm, bring it to bear, and fire before the assailant was on her. There are some cases where a firearm would be helpful. This one, I think you're pulling at straws to make it fit your desired conclusion.

Having a gun gives you a chance, BadTux. It is no guarantee.

But a chance is what that woman never had.
