My boss is an anti- of sorts. He mostly believes the propaganda, although he knows I (and his two sons-in-law) own plenty.

I mentioned the "2.5 million defensive uses per year" statistic, and he flew off the handle. He doesn't believe it.

He is not totally closed-minded, but he wants me to "prove it". I would like to show him US Bureau of Justice Statistics figures as well as Gary Kleck's study. I remember a BoJS report a while ago that mentioned 900,000 defensive gun uses, but searching their website did not turn it up.

I would like some hard numbers put out by a government agency- if anyone can point me to them that would be fantastic.

What Guns Do They Want To Take?

If you have friends or acquaintances who just don't get the nuances of the gun control debate, the creative folks at flashbunny.org have developed a primer on semi-automatic firearms - and others that gun-haters believe should be banned - that almost anyone can understand.
