Good Guy With A Gun

From The Washington Times:

Fortunately, in September 2019, the state of Texas clarified many of its existing statutes on firearm possession, allowing licensed gun owners to carry firearms into places of worship. Imagine how much worse the West Freeway Church of Christ tragedy could have been had this shooting occurred in gun-control-obsessed states like California, New York or Massachusetts instead. Even worse, imagine a world without the protections of the Second Amendment so brilliantly enshrined by our nation’s Founders.

No Guns For “Average” Americans

From Bearing Arms:

“You just do not want the average American carrying a gun in a crowded place,” said the former New York mayor. Actually, I do want the average American to be able to exercise their right to bear arms, as more than 18-million Americans who possess a concealed carry license currently do. That also doesn’t take into account the millions more who live in states that don’t require a license or permit in order for legal gun owners to lawfully carry.

Defensive Gun Uses Save Lives

From The Federalist:

Studies on incidents of defensive gun use range anywhere from an absurdly low 55,000 to a high of 4.7 million per year. The most commonly cited and widely accepted is the 1995 study by Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz, which estimates that between 2.1 and 2.5 million defensive gun use instances occur in the United States each year.

By contrast, from 1993-2011, nonfatal firearm-related crime ranged between 1,287,190 and 331,618 incidents per year. This data makes a strong case that defensive gun use is much more common than firearm-related crime. Instances of defensive gun use save lives every day, but the stories get very little news coverage, while the statistically much fewer negative gun uses are often covered by the national news media for days on end.
