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;

Mark A. Blehm arrived at his home in Gibson Township, Mich., found one of his screen windows broken into and a strange ATV outside the house.

In response, Blehm retrieved a shotgun, positioned himself on the ATV and yelled to the criminal inside his house.

After Blehm fired a shot into the air, the intruder eventually left the house. Police captured the intruder outside Blehm’s home shortly thereafter. (Mlive, Michigan, 06/05/14)

    1. A little too Hollywood for my taste. Where did he get the loaded shotgun? Does he keep a loaded long arm in his car, or did he go in the house, get the shotgun and go back out again? Apparently that shotgun is the only gun he owns, or the crook could have taken one of the guns in the house and blown him off the ATV. Love the way it turned out, but when faced with a potentially lethal situation, don’t go for the drama – go for safety and certainty.

    2. The homeowner should get to keep the ATV as a reward for catching the bad guy, that.s the least they can do for him. The person is lucky to still be around, there are many that would have put a round or two in the guy. The sound of that shotgun going off should have let the guy know that he really screwed up big time, he is lucky to NOT have a rather large hole in his body.
