Guns Save Lives

Guns Save Lives

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 man was heading to his Dekalb County, Ga. home for lunch when a phone call alerted him to a break-in at his property.

When the man arrived home, he went to a back door where he spotted three burglars; prompting him to call 911. While making the call, the three criminals started running towards the homeowner.

The homeowner responded by drawing a gun and firing at the burglars, striking one and causing the other two to flee.

When police arrived they detained the wounded criminal, whose injuries are considered non-life-threatening. (The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta, Ga. 12/16/13)

    1. Sounds like that fella needs either a larger caliber or better aim.

    2. Reply to BH: quite possibly BOTH.!! Bigger bore, better aim.
