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.”
