While there are roughly 760,000 defensive gun uses a year, the media’s longstanding disdain for guns—coupled with the fact that in many cases, no shots are fired—means most are never reported outside local outlets, if at all.
So we were thrilled to see a recent article on Breitbart.com detailing how 24 armed citizens from 11(!) to 85, from Hoonah, Alaska, to Lakeland, Fla., used their guns to thwart criminal attack. We’ve been reporting such stories in our Armed Citizen column for decades, but we can’t fight the rising tide of deniers on our own. Hats off to Breitbart for once again picking up the mantle, and here’s hoping other pro-freedom news outlets follow suit.
