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;
An armed man entered Innovative Optique in Bayside, Wisc. and attempted to rob the store.
An employee responded to the threat by retrieving a gun and firing at the criminal, striking and killing him.
An investigation revealed that the deceased was convicted of a 2010 armed robbery in which he targeted two people travelling in a car.
Innovative Optique experienced another attempted robbery in 2009. (The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee, Wisc. 08/15/2014)
