    Well there are certainly a lot of stories over just a few days!

    No doubt there are lots of incidences that occur every day where no shots are fired and no one is injured so there are no police reports or news stories to document the incidence.

    Long ago when I lived in Houston TX I remember reading in the old Houston Post newspaper a story where a home owner was awaken at 0 dark 30 one morning by what he thought was someone trying to break into his house through a window. He fired at the sound but when he looked afterwards he did not see anyone. He thought he had made a mistake to he did not call the police.

    That morning when he went out to go to work he found the dead body of a woman, wearing a stocking mask and armed with a handgun, lying in shallow ditch between his house and his neighbor's. He had been right after all!.

    I have no doubt that the number of times people frighten off criminals without firing a shot is many many more times than when the actually pull the trigger.

    Please check post #38, am I confused or is that a poor example?

    The recent Georgia incident where a mother defended her life and her children's lives against an intruder in her home was the catalyst for this thread that gun ownership has a fundamental purpose in self defense and protection of lives - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=8624766#post8624766

    Obviouslly that's one major reason we have guns. There are 3-5shootings in Palm Beach every day on my local news.
    This is the new normal, and won't improve in this economy and the social climate. Everything from money to illegals, to early release, and mental illness has to be addressed befor you see the crime rate start to fall.
    Guns have very little to do with anything, these people would use anything or nothing to get your stuff.
