USA –-( 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 was driving his truck with the windows down through Wilmington, N.C. when a pair of robbers approached him while the vehicle was stopped.

One of the thieves grabbed the driver’s arm, pointed a gun at him and said, “Give me your truck.”

The driver responded by retrieving a pistol and pointing it at the carjackers, causing them to flee. (WECT, Wilmington, N.C.09/05/13)

Crosby,that story about the dad protecting his daughter then being prsecuted really pisses me off too.


I got robbed at an ATM in ’04 by two “young black men” who jumped out of the bushes and I didnt have my weapon with me. I have never left home without it since.


Practice using your left hand to slide down the shoulder portion of the seatbelt to the belt lock, unlock it at the same time your right hand is on the grip of your firearm to have it at the ready.

Keeps your gun and right arm from getting tangled up in the seatbelt.

Makes it easy to have the firearm ready to fire if necessary.

Pointing a pistol at a criminal who is pointing one at you gives them a choice, one of which is they pull the trigger.
In a situation like that, I’m shooting first because I want to live. Too many doped up scum out there who will shoot you anyway to give them any kind of chance.

Most of these stories don’t even get told because the INJUSTICE SYSTEM would prosecute the victim defending him or her self . Like the guy that beat the hell out of a peeping tom outside his daughters bedroom window after catching him naked , so who is being prosecuted , the father of the victim for defending possibly her life .
