GUNS: Firearms also protect lives

Print Article

With all the haggling about the mass shootings, no one ever states the facts on how many lives are saved by guns every year.

Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year, or about 6,850 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.

None of us like to hear of some drugged-up mind-controlled or psycho shooting up the masses, but take into consideration the 2.5 million more that would no doubt be dead or wounded if there were no guns allowed.

Honduras has no guns and holds the record for murder. Now, should we surrender our guns, we could hold a good second to them, the mainstream media also tells us Switzerland has high gun crimes because of all their guns, that too is media propaganda.

Switzerland has about five guns per person, even though many don’t have guns, but it sure curbs crime.

As far as school kids, their safety is the school’s responsibility once they get on that bus. Bonner County never took that into consideration when they double shifted the schools to force a tax levy, they even showed a picture of a school bus with the rear axel sitting in the middle of an intersection and the bus there sitting a short ways ahead of it on the road with this no axel.

They should of all been arrested and sued for endangerment. The school needs to keep those buses in good condition, and it was a dereliction of duty to pull that on the people to get a bond levy. They won’t ever get away with that one again.

Now, back to guns, let’s get the teachers trained and armed, along with security since schools are very vulnerable to the cabal that uses school shootings as a Nazi plot to get our guns, but check the real statistics, don’t believe anyone who has special interests in disarming the public or the media that plays on the peoples sympathies.
