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;
After hearing a back window of his home shatter, a homeowner in Memphis, Tenn. called 911 and armed himself with a gun.
While the homeowner waited for police to arrive, a pair of burglars attempted to enter the home through the broken window. The homeowner responded by firing at the criminals, striking one and causing the other to flee.
Following the shooting, the armed citizen’s neighbors were supportive of his actions, with one stating, “It’s not you taking the law into your own hands; it’s exercising your right as a citizen.” (WREG, Memphis, Tenn. 11/29/13)
