Tennessee: Widow turns tragedy into a cause for gun rights

Posted: 09.09.12 04:00 PM

Clutching a .38-caliber revolver stashed in her sparkly blue purse makes 36-year-old Nikki Goeser feel more secure when walking back to her car at night.Goeser does not take safety for granted.She feared guns as a child growing up in western Kentucky. “I thought they’d jump right up from the table and shoot me,” Goeser, whose father collected guns, said of her early years.But her life changed after watching a man walk into a Nashville bar on a rain-soaked night in April 2009 and shoot her husband in the head with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol. The shooter then stood over him and continued to fire rounds into his body.Goeser’s embrace of gun rights after bearing witness to her husband’s murder became so feverish that her story has been turned into a visceral symbol of how gun restrictions harm society.
