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 pair of masked and armed robbers entered Bennett Valley Jewelry in Santa Rosa, Calif. Once inside, one of them then went behind the counter, assaulted the store’s manager and held her hostage.

After becoming aware of the situation, store owner Ty Visscher retrieved a gun and fired at the criminals, striking both and causing one to flee. Police captured remaining robber shortly after the shooting. An investigation revealed the criminal to be a gang member who was paroled less than two weeks before the robbery.

Following the incident, local business owner Molly Bray shared her support for Visscher, telling reporters of the jewelry store owner, “He’s such a big, macho, great guy. Very protective and loving to everybody… So I’m sure he wanted to protect his people.” (KPIX, San Francisco, Calif. 07/11/14, KTVU, Oakland, Calif. 07/10/14)

    1. Its just a shame that he did not put them all down like the rabid dogs that they are, gang members do not need to be put behind bars, they need to be taken out into the field with a blindfold. The anti gunners keep going after the law abiding and yet they do nothing about the gangs well it is about time they do, when a gang member commits a crime just put them down right where they stand.
