The government agrees - guns save lives

The Messiah's own executively-ordered CDC study on gun violence proves that the incidence of lawful defensive gun uses by Americans at the very least equals the incidence of gun crimes committed by criminals, and most likely exceeds it:

"Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year (Kleck, 2001a)."  (Emphasis ours)

There you go.  Scientific proof that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens for self-protection equals or betters the rate of their being used in crimes.  Where, then, is the urgent need to further restrict their availability to those who responsibly use them?

Not that the general media reported this, as they pretty much are only in favor of scientific evidence when it helps advance their agenda, which of course is not how science works.  If they had paid attention in high school they would have remembered that fact.
