I for one have used a gun to defend myself. When I lived in an urban area of South Sacramento, I had my door kicked in at 4:30am in the morning. Luckily my dog growled when they were behind the house unscrewing security lights and I had gotten up and saw shadows as they went around the corner to the front. Then I heard the crack as they kicked open the front door. Luckily for them hearing me rack a round violently in my 1911 sent them running and they never entered, because with the armed home invasions happening around that time I was shooting whoever came through the door. Besides, you're not the sharpest woken up in the middle of the night so you kind of assume the worst and let it shake out where it will.

a fine example of a defensive gun use(DGU) without the gun being fired.

"progressives" won't count them if you don't actually shoot the gun.

My grandmother kept a pistol under the corner of her mattress. She was a widow woman and when I was a child I spent the night with her. A prowler came up on her porch and she didn't hesitate to draw that gun and gave the intruder a verbal warning that she was armed and ready to shoot. They didn't hang around long.

Must every tragic mass shooting bring out the shrill ignorance of "gun control" advocates?

The key fallacy of so-called gun control laws is that such laws do not in fact control guns. They simply disarm law-abiding citizens, while people bent on violence find firearms readily available.

If gun control zealots had any respect for facts, they would have discovered this long ago, because there have been too many factual studies over the years to leave any serious doubt about gun control laws being not merely futile but counterproductive.

Places and times with the strongest gun control laws have...
