    This is according to the National Crime Victimization Survey, 2000, Bureau of Justice Statistics.

    That is per day.

    That would be about 200,750 rapes, 401,500 murders, and about 19 million other violent crimes being prevented per year by a victim just showing his gun.

    As much as I love my guns, isn't that statistic much like Obama's "saved jobs" figures???

    Not really because it comes from a national survey.

    And they're documentable, unlike Obama's "saved jobs". For instance, if a burglar breaks into my home, and I grab my gun, run out, point it at him, and he runs back out the door and into the night, I'm obviously going to call the police as my next act and report what happened. There's actually a record somewhere of the incident happening.

    In fairness I will say that the survey was from 2000.

    And the results in 1977 say the exact same thing, it proves that people don't change in their reactions (why would they change in their reasons, we haven't' evolved mentally). These results and very stable and reliable over time.

    So, your problem is that the person or their family who were supposed to be attacked were able to fend off the attacker??

    You think it's more reasonable that those violent criminals succeed in their quest to rape or murder people unchallenged?

    Okay, then.
