    I wonder if “just one child was saved” in any of these.

    Note that states like Wyoming, with constitutional gun laws, have no pins on that map.

    I haven’t clicked the link. Is it a map of Democrat Congresscritter’s home districts and the crimes they’ve gotten away with?

    There aren’t NEAR enough pins in Texas!
    Of course, in Austin, if a crime is averted by a gun owner, it is swept under the rug.
    Our Texas AG recently tweeted…
    “Sure, Texas has gun registration, it is called the phone book”.

    How many times are guns used to stop a crime and are not reported. Haveing once drawn a legally concealed weapon during an attempted robbery at an ATM in Miami Fl. I know that once defused calling the police would have been useless and placed me in a position to have to justify why I did it. I’m sure, as we all are, that there are possibly hundreds of thousand if not more per year where a gun has stopped a crime and gone unreported.

    Thanks for the laugh MIT. That was awesome.

    ^^Doug (1) Here’s one where a child was saved:
    Home invasion in Prince Edward, Virginia; perps break down front door at 4:30 am by three armed men, owner home alone with two year old child. Shots exchanged, two perps dead, other flees. Good guys OK.
