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)
