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;
Paris Ainsworth had just arrived at her Detroit, Mich. home after working two shifts, when she spotted two men approaching.
Ainsworth retrieved a .45 caliber pistol and put it into her pocket. One of the men said to Ainsworth, “Don’t pull it,” and fired at the grandmother, striking her three times.
Ainsworth responded by drawing her pistol and firing at the men, striking at least one.
The men were captured while seeking medical attention at a local hospital. Ainsworth’s also received medical attention and has been released from the hospital.
Following the incident, Ainsworth told a local media outlet, “If I wouldn’t have had my gun I would be dead today.” (WDIV, Detroit, Mich. 05/06/14)
