Two Fox News news stories on Nikki Goeser’s new book

19 Dec , 2019  

Nikki Goeser’s new book, “Stalked and Defenseless,” generated two different news stories at Fox News.

Widow says gun laws prevented her from protecting her husband from her stalker

Nikki Goeser, whose husband was shot and killed by her stalker at a restaurant, said on Wednesday that gun control laws prevented her from defending herself and her husband.

“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,” Goeser told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.

In April 2009, Nikki’s husband, Ben Goeser, was fatally shot in the middle of a busy restaurant by a man she said had been stalking her.

Goeser, now the executive director of the Crime Prevention Research 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.

Woman who witnessed husband’s murder in gun-free zone faults media coverage of shootings

A Tennessee woman who tragically witnessed her husband’s murder at the hands of her own stalker argued that gun-free zones make Americans less safe and she faulted the mainstream media for failing to represent her views and those of other Second Amendment supporters.

On April 2, 2009, Nikki Goeser and her newlywed husband Ben were working at a local restaurant running a mobile karaoke business. She had left her handgun in her car in compliance with a Tennessee state law that prevented her from carrying a firearm inside the restaurant. Then she noticed a man nearby whose romantic advance she had rejected.

“I did not realize that he was stalking me until that night,” Goeser told Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox Nation’s “Liberty File.” “I asked management to please have him removed. I said, ‘This man is stalking me. I’m very concerned. I don’t feel comfortable. Please help me.’ And when they confronted him to ask him to leave, he pulled a 45 and shot my husband seven times in front of myself and everyone in the middle of a busy restaurant.

“This happened in a restaurant that was a gun-free zone,” said Goeser, now the executive director of the Crime Prevention Research Center. “I followed the law and left my permitted firearm that I normally carried for self-defense locked in my vehicle… I will probably wonder for the rest of my life if I could have prevented that. Of course, I’ll never know.” . . .
