Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.
“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation
Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.
This is just one of those stories;
A beautiful night with a blue moon brought two adults to a St. Paul river bluff to enjoy the weather, but police said they were soon met with a random act of violence that ended with a 16-year-old dead.
Four juvenile males approached the adults Friday night and one, wearing a mask and gloves, pulled a handgun and tried to rob the adults, police said.
One of the victims has a permit to carry a handgun, pulled his own weapon and shot the suspect, they told police.
The teenage suspect from West St. Paul died at the scene near a World War I monument at Summit Avenue and Mississippi River Boulevard.
The suspects approached the two adults, and that’s when the attempted robbery and shooting occurred, Paulos said. The shooter “rendered first aid … tried to give immediate help,” the police spokesman said. “Called the police as he’s supposed to.” Paramedics declared Broadbent dead.
Broadbent and the man who shot him didn’t know each other, Paulos said, calling the attempted robbery “a random act of violence.”
