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;

A man wielding a 12-inch knife attempted to break into several home in Las Vegas, Nev. After unsuccessfully attempting to kick in the doors of several homes, the would-be intruder tried to get into another house through a doggie door.

The homeowner warned the home invader that he was armed with a .45-caliber pistol, but when the criminal continued to try to get inside, the homeowner fired at the man, striking him in the head and shoulder.

Following the incident, neighbor Nicole Slokken, who owns one of the homes the intruder attempted to break into, said of her armed neighbor to local media, “The detective told me the neighbor very well could have saved our lives.” (KSNV, Las Vegas, Nev. 02/15/16)

“…everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives ” LOVE IT! Have been looking all over for a statistic about this. Care to reveal where you got the information?

F.T.

All these stories from EACH State need to be compiled monthly into a common Data Base and printed up Quarterly and distributed to the main characters in the anti 2nd Amendment drive against lawful gun ownership as well as the law makers with the biggest mouths. It might make them THINK for once in their miserable lives about other people who were NOT victims because of lawfully owned guns owned by responsible gun owners instead of blaming an inert object for the acts of either criminals or mentally ill people who would use knives, machetes, ball bats, cars, fire, chemicals,… Read more »

The anti second liberal morons don’t care about situations like this. It doesn’t fit their narrative of guns being evil and only ever used for murder. These idiots somehow think if we are all disarmed crime is going to disappear. They want violent criminals to get a slap on the wrist because they honestly believe they can rehabilitate them, some people want to be criminals and they don’t get that. Some people are just evil and will kill, gun or not. I refuse to be a victim and good for this guy, using his weapon on a thug who would… Read more »

So what would have been which at some point would have been a victim, is now a coulda instead of a tragedy. No Fear no regrets on this subject. The theif? Murderer? What was his motive? Who cares he should be dead and its actually tragic because most of these offenders get right back at it. Yes I agree if you donate enough slugs to the Obama charity network, you will be donating often but it’s a worth while charity. Motion to make Slugs for Thugs an actual charitable event and even a holiday. There’s a movie out about it… Read more »

I have said this how many times “SLUGS FOR THUGS” well the only thing the home owner did wrong was she did not hit in the center of the forehead that would have saved the people from have to pay for the thugs housing and everything else. SLUGS FOR THUGS, and the game goes on, yet the government wants to disarm the people, why so that things lime this can get even more violent than they already are. We need to remember the government cares nothing for the people so they are going to do for those that are favored,… Read more »

My wife and I have had to pulls weapon on three separate occasions while are children were with us on trips. If we haven’t been carrying we would have been beaten and robbed. All we had to do was show the weapon and the bums moved on. We don’t ever want to shoot anyone, but we don’t care to be a statistic if we can prevent a situation.
