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 citizen was outside a Motel 6 in Jackson, Miss. when a man approached and asked for a cigarette. When the armed citizen declined the man, the man drew a gun and stated “Betcha ain’t got one of these.”

The armed citizen responded by drawing his own gun and firing at the robber, striking him in the chest and causing him to flee.

The criminal was discovered a short time later while seeking medical attention. (The Clarion Ledger, Jackson, Miss. 06/20/14)

MOST military and other properly trained people would have assessed the situation, ensuring that there was no back-shooter around, (most likely) eliminated #1 and been ready for #2.
