    What About Lives SAVED By Guns Each Year?

    The dominant news you hear every day is how some psycho went nuts and killed X-number of people with an "assault rifle", therefore they should all be confiscated as well as all guns with magazines of higher than 10 capacity like California. If real truth was told, the left side would do away with the 2nd amendment and quickly ban all guns and gun ownership.

    Yesterday I started a thread about how 3 teenage criminal thugs were attempting to rob some men at a private residence early in the morning and ended up biting the dust themselves because a gun was used to thwart their efforts and save lives of innocent people.

    It got me to thinking about how many lives are SAVED by guns each year, either reported and confirmed or go unreported and unconfirmed.

    I found a couple of websites that do have some stats but I'm sure there are a lot more incidents that go unreported or skewed by the mainstream media to not give credit to guns SAVING lives, which is what all of us are interested in doing for our loved ones and ourselves.

    Here are a couple of websites with info. If you find more, please add to it along with newspaper articles in your town or state where guns saved lives.

    Absolutely it rarely even becomes part of the discussion. Maybe WE should be making a big stink about it. Look at the incident yesterday where 3 teenager criminals went bye-bye. How will it go down in the books and what will the gun grabbers pounce on...three teens killed by gunfire from resident. NOT four saved from death or injury by gun wielding teens.

    The punk thug Trayvon Martin was killed, murdered by a gun. Not George Zimmerman saved by gun he was carrying that Martin was trying to gain control of to kill Zimmerman.

    How about...On August 9, 2014, Michael Brown Jr., an 18-year-old African American man, was fatally shot by 28-year-old white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the city of Ferguson, Missouri. Recently Kamala Harris referred to the incident as Brown was MURDERED! Are you kidding me?!! And her creepy self is in the Senate and attempting to run for the Presidency?

    How about Darren Wilson's life was saved with his Department issued .40 caliber pistol as Michael Brown was attempting to gain control of it from Wilson to kill him and then later to kill Wilson any way he could.

    Not to mention that the incident you mentioned in the other post gets counted in both the "gun violence" figures and the "mass shooting" count.

    Facts, truth, and little things like the Constitution have no place in the debate. It's common sense and you're a racist if you disagree. How do people not know these things? Didn't they go to school and get indoctrinated?

    Clearly time for some re-education camps.

    My way-left liberal stepson was over a couple months ago.

    He at one point was talking about why they have to round up all the guns. Little while
    later he was talking about revolution and getting America back from the racist conservatives.

    I just smiled. Logic like that, they can't lose.

    All the Best,

    Good points. Easy to see how the numbers can get skewed very quickly to the point where gun grabbers have an easy case to pounce on and we have nothing to fight back with.

    Truth to be told, talking about the good that comes from the 2nd does not fit their agenda.

    Since facts have rarely been part of the anti-Constitutionalist agenda, something as difficult to quantify as the cost-benefit trade-off of guns in a free society has no way of getting traction.

    Besides, it doesn’t create good headlines, doesn’t provide a rationale for more government control, and people who have been saved by a well-deserved killing don’t get crowds together to publicly go after the relatives of the person who committed the original assault, demanding justice. And if they did, the media would likely portray it as unreasonable, racist (if possible), and vendetta-driven.
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    That's only because I haven't had to shoot somebody yet. If I ever do, you can bet I will be suing their family and estate (if there is one) for mental distress and anything else I can come up with, because they forced me to take a life. They can call me racist all they want because for what the term now infers, it's a badge I would wear most proudly.
