    Hey guys, I'm having an argument about gun control with a friend. he doesn't beleive that guns can be used in self defense. He's never heard stories of it (of course not). Please, regale this thread with stories, so I can refer him to it.

    Go to http://www.thefiringline.com and search for posts by BestDefense357. It's Robert Waters (?) who wrote a couple of books on the lawful use of firearms in self defense.

    Are you an NRA member? If you are, just show him the "Armed Citizen" column of American Rifleman. If not, PM me your snail mail address, and I'll send you a copy or two.

    Then why do the police carry then? To shoot BG's in the back? To balance the billy club and cuffs on the other side of the belt? Probably just to intimidate the BG's when they say "Stop! or I'll shoot! Put 'em up! You're under arrest!"

    Anyway, the sited sources are the best place to start. Let us know if you need more.

    Here's a good flash movie listing several cases.

    Also, here's a case, a pretty good one to use on an anti.

    Um....

    I'm serious when I ask this: Does your friend have an honest understanding of what a firearm is and what it does?

    Do this: Ask him if he'd ever want one pointed at him.

    He will probably answer in the negative, and when he does, ask him why not.

    Then ask him why he thinks that a criminal would feel any different about having a firearm pointed at them. :scrutiny:
