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 armed with a rifle entered Congress Mini Mart in New Haven, Conn. and attempted to rob the store.
At some point the thief left, then traveled to the nearby Nino’s Market convenience store and attempted to rob it.
The clerk at Nino’s responded to the threat by retrieving a gun and shooting the criminal in the chest, killing him. Police have confirmed that the clerk was in compliance with Connecticut’s gun laws.
Bizarrely, the clerks at Congress Mini Mart and Nini’s Market are brothers. (WFSB, Connecticut, 08/06/14)
