In the aftermath of any high-profile shooting, the antis argue that guns sales and possession must be controlled in order to save lives. What you don’t hear in the mainstream media: guns save life. According to wikipedia.org . . .
there are at least 55,000 defensive gun uses per year. Mind you, that stat comes from Harvard’s die-hard gun control “researcher” David Hemenway. Other more objective studies place the number of annual DGUs well above one million and as many as 2.5 million.
Either way, civilian gun ownership is a net positive for society: far more lives are saved by guns than are lost because of their use. But let’s steal a page from the antis’ playbook and make this personal. Have you ever used your gun to save/protect a life? If not, do you know anyone who has?
Tell us the story.
