Wife of Murder Victim’s Passionate Plea for Gun Rights
On April 2, 2009, Nikki Goeser lost her husband Ben to a killer who broke a Tennessee law forbidding him to carry a firearm into a bar. Nikki and Ben were working that night, and Nikki left her firearm in the car. Though she was permitted to carry a concealed firearm, she obeyed the same law her husband’s killer ignored.
Because her pistol was locked in her car when the murderer drew his weapon, Nikki could do nothing as she watched the cold-blooded killer fire several rounds into her husband at point blank range. When the heartless assassin left, Nikki knelt in her husband’s blood as she tried to wish the life back into his body.
Nikki told her story at the 2nd Amendment Rally in Little Rock on February 27, 2010 and asked all who heard it to repeat it, in the hopes her story may somehow save lives.
