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;

A mother and her two children returned to their Portland, Ore. home to find an intruder in one of the children’s bedrooms. The mother responded to the threat by retrieving a handgun and shooting the intruder, killing him.

Following the incident, neighbors appeared supportive of the mother, with one telling a local news outlet, “great for her for defending herself and her family.”

Another area man said “She did the right thing, I think she did the right thing.” (KGW, Portland, Ore. 06/27/16)

Great for her. I’m only glad that the children and herself where not injured or worse killed. I totally believe in our right to bear arms. The 2 Amendment gives us this right. I only which more responsible Americans would do the same and keep a firearm at home secured for self defense. So glad to read a story where the victims come out on top.
