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 family was at home in Louisville, Ky. when a pair of men attempted to break into their house. The homeowner responded to the threat by retrieving a gun and firing at the criminals, striking one and causing the other to flee.

Earlier in the week, a neighbor had called police to report some suspicious individuals that appeared to be casing homes in the neighborhood.

Neighbors were supportive of the homeowner’s actions, with one telling a local media outlet, “[The criminal’s] not dead. The house is protected. He is incapacitated. I can't say anything negative about that. He was protecting his home, which he had every reason to believe that was going to be dangerous.”

    Same reaction from police I got. Gang of vandals came at midnite, threw my porch swing thru plate glass living rm window & roared off. Called cops. “we’re not coming this time of night Over a broken window”. Another time $24,000 worth of equipment stolen. “This snowstorm caused dozen wrecks tonite. ” Cops get reimbursed by insurance companies. To hell with your property.

    one set of tyre tracks and one set of foot tracks means he stopped there, got out, came to your house, went back to the trick (which did NOT have any kids in it I’ll wager) started it and drove off.

    Had it truly been broken down it could not have got away without outside help…. which would have left other footpritns and other vehicle tracks.

    Glad you were safe, but you misread the true signficance of those signs left on the tarmac the next day. Right call.

    “There were tracks from one vehicle and one set of foot prints in the snow, so perhaps he was telling the truth.” I’m not so sure. If his truck broke down, then why was he able to drive away? If his truck truly broke down, then one would think there would be traces of others. Like a tow truck or tow truck driver. You did the right thing under those conditions.

    We live in rural eastern Kommiecticut with no town police department, only the six shift state troopers on patrol at any given time. On a good night, we can expect a trooper in 5 minutes at the latest, but in foul weather, trouble at the prisons or at UConn, we are basically on our own. At 1:00AM Christmas morning 2012, my wife and I were awakened by someone pounding on our front door. Our dogs were going berserk and my wife was frightened out of her wits. I went down stairs in my skivvies holding my Glock 21 and SureFire… Read more »
