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;
The wheelchair bound owner of Malone’s Jewelers in Alcoa, Tenn. was working at his shop when a man entered and began to occupy his attention.
Soon after, another man, who was in league with the first, entered the store and attempted a robbery. The owner responded to the threat by retrieving a gun, shooting one of the criminals in the abdomen, then holding the pair of thieves until police could arrive.
When interviewed by a local media outlet, Det. Kris Sanders of the Alcoa Police Department said of the owner, “He did a really good job detaining both individuals until we got there.” The owner has not been charged. (WATE, Knoxville, Tenn. October 23, 2013)
