Widow: Gun Control Prevented Me from Protecting My Husband from Stalker

By: Teresa Mull

Nikki Goeser’s husband was shot and killed by her stalker, and Nikki says gun laws were to blame.

In an interview with Fox News, Nikki said:

“This happened in a restaurant that was a gun-free zone. ... I obeyed that law. Of course, the man who was stalking me did not have a permit to carry, brought a gun in illegally and shot my husband seven times. ... I will probably wonder for the rest of my life if I could have prevented that. Of course, I will never know because I was denied a chance. I was stalked and defenseless.”

Fox further reports:

Goeser, now the executive director of the Crime Research and Prevention Center, had a permit to carry a handgun. But at the time, Tennessee state law prevented her from carrying the gun inside the bar-restaurant where she and her husband ran a mobile karaoke business.

Goeser, who is now wrote an op-ed stating, ‘I obeyed the law but my stalker, who was carrying a gun illegally, ignored it.’
