Murdered in a gun-free zone

Empower Wisconsin | March 6,  2020 

Nikki Goeser helplessly watched her stalker fatally shoot her husband, Ben, in the middle of a busy restaurant. Another gun-control law didn’t stop a madman from taking an innocent life. 

Nikki and Ben owned a karaoke business in those days, about a decade ago. She would usually carry her permitted concealed handgun with her. But at the time, Tennessee did not allow carrying in restaurants that served alcohol. 

As she wrote in December in a column for Fox News, “While I obeyed the law, Ben’s murderer did not.” 

“He had no permit to carry, and he brought a gun into a gun-free zone.” 

Ten years later, the song remains the same for so many victims cut down in so-called gun-free zones. The only ones often not following the laws are criminals. 

Now Goeser’s stalker is tormenting her all over again, writing her letters from prison. 

“(H)e talks about how he thinks about me every day. He writes about how even if I have found another love in my life, he will still always love me. Given that he murdered Ben, it terrifies me that he might someday do the same to a new person in my life,” she wrote. 

Someday is drawing closer. The killer, convicted of second-degree murder, has earned  “good behavior” credits. which would shorten his 23-year prison sentence. 

Goeser, a vehement Second Amendment defender, has written a book about her experiences, “Denied a Chance: How Gun Control Aided a Stalker to Murder My Husband.” 

She spoke this week to conservative talk show host Vicki McKenna on NewsTalk 1310 WIBA in Madison.
