Guns Save Lives
- t seems as though each month there is another incident in which a gunman goes into a school, shopping mall or church, and tries to kill a score of people. These tragic events are then overplayed on television, and the gun control experts come out and encourage drastic federal gun control: i.e. take away the guns of all the law-abiding citizens. Guns are used five times more frequently to prevent crimes than to commit them. Florida State University Professor Gary Kleck (and see biography here) recently estimated that Americans use firearms at least 2.5 million times a year for self-defense.
