NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said that the man killed in his own apartment by a Dallas police officer who claims she mistook it for her own might still be alive if he was a gun owner.
Last week, Botham Jean, 26, was shot and killed by his neighbor, Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, after she entered his apartment instead of her own.
Loesch said on NRA TV that the shooting could have been prevented by adding another gun into the equation.
“This could have been very different if Botham Jean had been, say he was a law abiding gun owner and he saw somebody coming into his apartment,” she claimed.
“I mean, there’s no — I don’t think there’s any context that the actions would have been justified,” she clarified. “If I see somebody coming into my house and I’m not expecting them and they’re walking in like they own the place, I would — I would act to defend myself.”
“This could have been very differently had he actually had a firearm on him,” she added. “Maybe it would be a different individual, she might be the one carried out.”
