• 24 Times Citizens Used Guns to Save Lives in Last Six Weeks



    By AWR Hawkins

    On January 12, 2017, the New York Times editorial board claimed, “The grim truth is that concealed-carry permit holders are rarely involved in stopping crime.” And that very same day a concealed carry permit holder in Arizona used his gun to save the life of a state trooper who was under attack on I-10.

    In fact, authentic academic work on gun use for self-defense shows that Americans in general—whether concealed permit holders or not—use guns for defense of themselves and others at least 760,000 a year. That is not a typo—Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck’s research shows that the minimum number of defensive gun uses (DGUs) is 760,000 annually.

      Does not fit narrative , Eject , Eject.
      Misspeaking out of ignorance is one thing , but when people who have the facts do it , that makes you a lying POS.

      ol' Mahty "We need to get guns off the streets" Walshy should take these facts into consideration.

      Either he doesn't truly care about reducing violent crime in his city, or he's dumb beyond planet earth.

      24 times in 6 weeks sounds great to me, but I'm sure that guns have dissuaded criminals 1,000s of times/year,as the mentioned study concludes. The antis aren't going to be convinced by such low numbers, unless one of them happens to be one of the saved lives! How do we publicize the facts with such an unfriendly and partisan media?

      Mahty has to appease the liberals and the "Moms for Peace" crowd etc. Not content to deny us our 2A rights they are now trying to take away our 1A rights.
