Default Guns

Using a gun may not mean firing a gun. According to Gary Kleck, a criminologist from Florida State University, Guns prevent an estimated 2.5 million crimes a year, or 6,849 per day. There was a study done on police encounters involving a gun and the avg. number of shots fired was 2.3 over 40,000 encounters. Although I’ve seen no formal study I suspect the number of shots fired per “civilian” encounter is also quite low.

No study can EVER account for the lives were saved by the deterrent effect of guns.
