I can't think of day when Americans didn't use guns to protect themselves and their property.
Examples from recent days:
Dec 23, Cleveland, OH
One dead in home invasion shooting.
Dec 22, Sacramento, CA
Armed resident fends off four home invaders. One shot dead.
Dec 20, Houston, TX
Armed resident defends girlfriend and two year old. Intruder fatally shot.
Dec 20, Calera, AL
Armed resident defends home when armed intruders invade.
Dec 19, Atlanta area, GA
Armed resident fends off home invader who died after leaping from 2nd story window.
Dec 19, Allegheny County, PA
Armed resident kills one of three home invaders.
Dec 17, Florence, SC
Resident shoots home invader in the leg.
Dec 15, Boardman, PA
Home invasion suspect shot by homeowner.
There are more -- many more -- news accounts of home invasions this week in which vulnerable, unarmed residents were killed, injured, and raped during home invasions. Google 'news: home invasion' for a few examples, such as:
Robbers beat up husband and wife during home invasion in St. Louis County
Man Tied Up in Santee Home Invasion
When guns are banned, burglars will have little deterrent from invading homes. The number of home invasions will increase along with bodily injuries and murders of innocent residents who are unable to resist.
Granted, there may be fewer news accounts of criminals using guns. But there will also be no more news stories of residents successfully defending themselves with fire arms. Virtually all, with few exceptions, will be condemned to be victims of crime.
