According to the FBI, Americans use firearms in self defense 2.1 million times annually. Cases where firearms are used criminally amount to 579,000. Seventy percent of those cases are carried out by criminal repeat offenders. Barrett and Democrats would seek to punish those protecting themselves rather than the criminals.

Well if that is true then why does the left keep screaming out the lie that you are 7 times more likely to be killed by your own gun than to defend yourself with it?

Chicago is in the top 3 in gun violence.


Of course you can't own a gun in Chicago unless you are a Obama-Rahm type.

What is included in "gun deaths"?  If it includes deaths related with people defending themselves and suicides, then that stat is ******* useless.
