“You obviously have strong opinions about this hot topic,” Linden wrote. “So, let me say this as plainly as I can: If a bad guy with a gun had decided to walk onto that train and start shooting people, I would have been prepared and able to use my gun to defend my own life and the lives of everyone else on that train, including yours. Although you may hate me, a gun owner, I would risk my life for you.”
Linden ended his letter, “Your liberal self-righteousness and ignorance may have made you feel superior and comfortable, but during that 40-minute train ride to Boston, my gun kept you safe.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation analyzed 195 cases from July 2014 to July 2015 and found an impressive number of gun owners, including many elderly people and children, saved themselves and others from attackers.
