The Truth About Defensive Firearm Use with David Kopel

posted on June 4, 2022

If you've ever asked the question "how often are firearms used defensively in the United States?" then look no further than a recent piece from America's 1st Freedom by David Kopel. Despite the facts, anti-gun advocates still refute these numbers, but one thing is for sure. There is, however, a clear truth about armed self-defense and those same anti-gunners don't want it to be known.

Kopel also took some time to discuss this important topic with America's 1st Freedom Editor in Chief Frank Miniter. As Kopel states in their discussion, "in general, the media tends to focus on harmful gun misuse, rather than beneficial gun use." Watch the full interview above or on NRA Publications' YouTube channel.
