USA –  -( 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;

Luis Enrique Alonso was unloading groceries outside his home in Temple Terrace, Fla. when two men approached, at least one of whom was armed.

The robbers grabbed Alonso and threatened him with a gun. Alonso responded by grabbing the criminal’s firearm and drawing his own gun. Shots were exchanged before the armed robbers fled the scene. (WFLA, Tampa, Fla. 02/01/16)

He needs more range time. 7 shots and no hits? Too many rounds going all over to no effect. Cant be the only bullet hole around there.


M. Dunn sounds like the typical ignorant liberal moron; “Just wet your panties and hand over your money and HOPE they don’t Kill You:” Sorry you donkey’s rear end, I’m going down fighting and I have a 17 round magazine in my CCW weapon and I’m good with it. The Army DID NOT teach me to play the coward.
I noticed they waited to the very end to tell you it was TWO blacks, I would have bet on it from the start of the story.

Dbltap2x – Indeed it does, that crime can happen in the most likely places and at the most unlikely times. Shoot straight lock load & stay frosty.

“It’s a dangerous situation, we don’t encourage people to get into a firefight with criminals…..” ????? It is indeed a dangerous situation CREATED BY THE CRIMINALS ! So are we being instructed to not defend ourselves? That sounds even more dangerous to the victim while providing protection to the criminal.


This man had to use his firearm while unloading groceries? Well, I guess that should give us “food for thought”.
