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;
92-year-old World War II veteran Joe Milspa was at home in San Jacinto, Calif. when he heard a suspicious noise. It was a man attempting to break through his door with an ax. Milspa retrieved a pistol and went to the door, at which point the would-be home invader attempted to break in through a window. Milspa responded to the threat by firing at the intruder, prompting him to flee.
Milspa told CBS Los Angeles that he still frequents the shooting range. (CBS Los Angeles, Los Angeles, Calif. 02/01/16)
