Cato Institude: Interactive Gun Defensive Use Map
#1
http://www.cato.org/guns-and-self-defense

Quote:Gun control proponents want legislation that will restrict access to firearms. The rationale for such legislation is to reduce accidental shootings and the criminal use of guns against people. But if harm reduction is the goal, policymakers should pause to consider how many crimes--murders, rapes, assaults, robberies--are thwarted by ordinary persons who were fortunate enough to have access to a gun. Gun control proponents cannot deny that people use guns successfully against criminals, but they tend to play down how often such events take place. The purpose of this map is to draw more attention to this aspect of the firearms policy debate.

We need to inform CA police chief Ken James about this. Recently he said a gun is not a defensive weapon. Will it change his mind?
