    Can someone give me a (preferably unrefutable to an anti) link to incidence of gun self defense uses? Someone mentioned DOJ data in a thread a few days ago.

    Gooooood numbers. Not that numbers matter, of course; self-defense is a fundamental human right, and needs no statistics to defend it, just like free speech, or the right to trial by jury of one's peers, or such.
