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;

Two men hailed a cab in Sebastian, Fla. then attempted to rob the driver at knife-point. The cabbie responded by retrieving a gun and shooting one of the criminals, prompting them both to flee.

Police captured the wounded criminal after following a blood trail to his nearby home. Police were also able to capture the other thief.

The wounded criminal later died. (Florida Today, Brevard County, Fla. May 30, 2015)

My heart goes out to the cabbie, it is not without trauma when you have to pull a weapon & use it. Even more trauma when someone dies. Maybe the 2nd robber will learn from his friends death or maybe he will become a hardened criminal in prison. Depending on the state he may be charged with murder.

Funny how so many complain about what the Tax Payers have to pay for, yet they continue to hand over what they don’t owe in the first place.

Tax Payer = Slave

First of all, I learned to handle a firearm when my dad taught me how to properly load, point, fire, and clean my first single shot .22lr at age 7. I am now approaching the 3/4 century mark of my tenure on this rock, I served proudly, I taught small arms courses with the pride that marks the education and responsibility of a true patriot of this great country. I am not happy with the path that our group of self serving gum’mint officials have been following these past few years. I have been a proponent of the rights and… Read more »
