    2.5 Million Served???

    I spotted a bumper sticker tonight that said:

    Guns Save Lives!
    2.5 Million Self-Defense Uses Per Year

    My research shows that number is closer to 670,000.

    What do you think? Any objective, third-party links to back up this or a different claim?

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. OO-RAH!!! Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and other founding documents.

    As for President Trump, he's getting the job done.

    IIRC, that number was from a government agency look-see that was asked for by obama, and then promptly ignored/forgotten when the number was way more than he wanted it to be. I have a bumper sticker from VCDL with that info.

    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.
