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;

When an employee at Jim’s Gun Shop in Wake County, N.C. spotted a pair of masked men approaching the store he attempted to lock the entrance.

However, before the employee could secure the door, the thieves got inside the store.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the gun store employee responded to the threat by drawing a gun and firing at the robbers, prompting them to flee. (WTVD, Raleigh, N.C. 08/02/16)

You could also have drug dealers that you have on camer selling, picked up and no one see them again. The word would get… Read more »

    I may be able to fathom trying b & e after store hours but who the h3ll tries to rob a gun store? Obviously someone who has never been in one, or has never noticed that there are guns and ammo in there, or has never noticed that typically the employees are themselves armed.
