    Study says self-defense gun use is effective

    Gun rights advocates from Miami to Mountlake Terrace are probably wondering this morning how soon news about a new study reported yesterday by Slate – will disappear from view because it says that firearms are effectively used in self-defense a lot, a contention that is always disputed by gun prohibitionists.
    The report comes from the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on order from President Barack Obama. According to the report on Page 15, “Defensive uses of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed.” Estimates range from 500,000 to 3 million such uses annually.
    On the following page, the report also notes, “Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was “used“ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”
    Rest of the story is here.

    It would be more effective if cops stopped arresting people for protecting themselves and their families.

    In most cases, but not all, the police are simply following the law that is set down by our arrogant and often stupid politicians. These petty dictators need to use every possible method to control the people in order to bolster the very high opinions they hold of themselves. Unfortunately, LEOs sometimes also become vulnerable to the abuse of power exhibited by so many in government. Too many in government (IRS, NSA, bureaucrats, and politicians) wield enough power to destroy lives. Unrestrained power with little oversight and no moral basis can be extremely dangerous. These out of control government employees must face severe consequences for the abuse of power with which they have been trusted.

    If this study supports the 2A you can bet that this administration will never mention it.
