Guns Used Over 2 Million Times To Protect Citizens
When the Centers for Disease Control researched gun violence two decades ago, it found that firearms are used to protect citizens more than 2 million times per year,” The Western Journal reported earlier this year.
“CDC’s findings indicated that an average of 2.46 million U.S. adults used a gun for self-defense in each of the years from 1996 through 1998,” Gary Kleck of the Florida State University of Criminology and Criminal Justice found after digging into government data.
“Defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year,” the CDC itself reported.
That evidence flies in the face of anti-Second Amendment leftists who seem to believe that disarming law-abiding citizens will magically stop criminals. And it doesn’t even take into account instances of deterrent, when would-be thugs think twice about their actions because they know “victims” may be armed.

Now ask yourself why this kind of research is not done today. Google gun violence or gun to protect citizens and you NOT find any current research. In fact, there are articles criticizing this report - but NO NEW SURVEY has been done. And why do you think that is so? Probably because they do not want to know the answer. Better to hide the truth when it doesn't support gun control.
