Toledo Blade, Toledo, Ohio 11/4/13
USA –-(Ammoland.com)- 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;
An armed robber entered the Stop & Go convenience store in Toledo, Ohio and got into a confrontation with clerk December Long. At some point during the attempted robbery, Long was able to retrieve a firearm, and exchanged gunfire with the criminal. During the exchange, the armed robber was fatally shot, and Long was wounded.
Following the shooting, a frequent Stop & Go customer told a local media outlet that Long is “real nice and friendly. Hard-nosed. She doesn’t take guff from anybody.” (The Toledo Blade, Toledo, Ohio 11/4/13)
