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 pair of armed men forced Daniel McNamara and his wife into the basement of their Detroit, Mich. home.
Recalling the incident for a local media outlet, McNamara said the home invaders “kept telling us to turn around, I said ‘No, I’m not going to turn around,’ I said ‘You’ve got to kill me face to face’.”
After the thieves collected several personal items from the couple, McNamara was able to retrieve a gun that he had stashed inside the home. Upon acquiring the firearm, McNamara fired at the assailants, striking one and prompting both to flee.
The wounded thief was captured as he sought medical treatment at a hospital. McNamara went on to tell a reporter, “The Lord looked out for us today.”
