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;
A 76-year-old man was at home in Hampton, Va. when he heard suspicious noises inside the residence.
The man retrieved a gun, went to investigate, and discovered a burglar inside the closet of a barber shop which is attached to the property.
The resident fired at the criminal, striking him in the arm and causing him to flee. Police captured the wounded intruder a short time later. (The Virginian-Pilot, Hampton Roads, Va. 12/10/13)
