Guns Save Lives. Enough Said.

Guns Save Lives. Enough Said.

Earlier this year (2019) a man calmly walked between two mosques in New Zealand as he videotaped his killing of 51 people. The government of New Zealand responded by punishing people who had done nothing wrong and banning their self-defense tools under the guise of making them safe.

A man in a Ft Worth Texas church ( December 30, 2019), pulls a gun and shoots 2 people; within 5 seconds a church security volunteer pulls a pistol and with one shot to the head saves the state millions of dollars and eliminates the threat to who knows how many lives.

There are up to 2.5 million defensive gun uses every year, Obozo’s justice department claimed that there could be as many as 4 million DGU’s a year. Gun control is not about safety, it is tyranny and about control. Guns save lives. Enough said.

From Dan Bongino:

It’s thanks to what has become a viral video that we can see armed resistance preventing a tragedy from worsening, and the frequency in which guns are used in self defense is more than implied by what the media reports.

The estimates very across studies between as few at 100,000 self defensive gun uses (SDGUs) per year to millions due to methodological differences. However, simply taking an average number from the array of studies available would give us SDGU tally exceeding the use of firearms in crime.

From The Truth About Guns: More Lives Are Saved by Defensive Gun Uses Than Taken by Criminal Gun Uses

Here’s a fact you’ll never see in mainstream media accounts of “gun violence” in America: defensive gun uses save more than twice as many lives than the number lost in criminal gun uses. Here are the numbers:

According to the Kleck-Gertz study from the mid 1990s, there are between 2.1 and 2.5 million defensive gun uses (DGU’s) annually.
