Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.
“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation
Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.
This is just one of those stories;
A woman was near a Circle K convenience store in Glendale, Ariz. when she was approached by an armed robber.
When the thief drew a gun and tried to rob her, the woman responded by drawing a gun and shooting the criminal.
After the woman got to safety at her home, she alerted authorities to the incident. (Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Ariz. 08/01/16)
