They also refuse to REPORT on in the Legacy Media ANY case where there is no body bag with a perp in it. That way they can lie to us that "nobody defends themself" with a gun. The current figure and most accurate is about 1million DGU (defensive gun uses) per year. Take the bloated "murder" numbers waved like bloody shirts, remove the suicides (45%) and legal defensive shootings and law enforcement shootings and the 45k/year becomes about 18k. Then divide 1,000,000 by 18,000 and the ratio of DGU to murder is so huge that there is no logical way to want to curtail gun ownership.
