The Civilian Gun Self-Defense Blog celebrated the posting of its 4000th self-defense incident this week.

Think about it.  That's 4000 times that a firearm has been used in a legitimate, legal manner to save lives or prevent crimes, and this is just since they began keeping track in 2003.
We hear from the mainstream media all the time about the tragic cost of guns and 'gun violence' but not nearly so often about the greater number of incidents in which lives and property were defended by gun owners.  And we know from various studies done over the decades past that the number of actual incidents is much greater than the average of two per day that their blog has posted.
Hats off to Clayton Cramer and David Burnett, the authors of the blog.  Mr. Cramer is a well-known professor and blogger of many years standing, and Mr. Burnett is a member of the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, which you can find more info about on this blog.
If you'd like to support their ongoing work, please make sure to hit the donations tab on the Gun Self Defense blog when you visit.  Their link is here on the left side of our page.  It's worth the look and worth your time to read the reports.

"Fight back! Whenever you are offered violence, fight back! The aggressor does not fear the law, so he must be taught to fear you. Whatever the risk, and at whatever the cost, fight back!" - Jeff Cooper
