More America 1st Freedom readers are well aware that anti-gun politicians, gun ban advocates, and the so-called “mainstream” media tend to play fast with the facts. One specific area where they tend to lie is the frequency of episodes of armed self-defense by law-abiding Americans.

“People very rarely use guns successfully to defend themselves against crime, both at home and in public,” wrote Laura Cutilletta, chief executive of the anti-gun Giffords Law Center, in a recent op-ed. titled “Debunking the ‘Good Guy with a Gun Myth.

Cutilletta further pontificated: “Having access to a firearm does not protect people better from injury during a crime than other protective actions like calling law enforcement or fleeing the scene. ”

Of course, she’s completely wrong, as we detailed earlier. In 2013, even the Centers for Disease Control wrote, “Studies that directly assess the effect of actual defensive uses of firearms (i.e., incidents in which a firearm was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) found consistently lower rates of injury among victims of crimes using firearms compared to victims who used other self-protection strategies.

Four Southern gun owners became living proof of this during a five-day period in late August.

On August 28, in League City, Texas, a couple was at their home in a trailer park around 10 p.m. when a man broke into the trailer and threatened them with a knife. Fearing for their lives, one of them fired a shot, hitting the intruder.

Officers responding to the shooting found the home invader dead inside the trailer. The incident is being investigated as an act of self-defense.

A day earlier in Loganville, Georgia, a 23-year-old man had gone to attend a family event when another man approached him and started an argument. The man told officers he retreated and tried to run away, but the other man gave chase. Believing the attacker to be armed and fearing for his life, the first man shot him.

The attacker was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Although it has been reported that “(e)evidence at the scene corroborated” the claims of the man who said he acted in self-defence, police are continuing to investigate the matter. No charges have been filed.

Three days before that, a Boones Mill, Va. owner used his legally owned firearm to defend himself and his family. According to media reports, a man unknown to the owner showed up at the house and an altercation ensued. The owner shot Christopher Hill, 26, who died at the scene. Police are still investigating the incident.

On the same day, in Hialeah, Florida, a man used his gun for protection during an alleged road rage incident. According to police, a man trapped in another man’s car with his own, got out of the vehicle, approached the other car aggressively and confronted the other driver.

Fearing for his life, the second man shot the attacker in the chest, killing him. Police are still investigating the incident and are treating it as a case of armed self-defense.

“This case is still open and active but appears to be an act of resistance,” the Hialeah Police Department told Local 10 News via email. “The shooter is fully cooperating with the incident and faces no charges at this time.”

The truth is that armed citizens across the country are saving their own lives and the lives of others multiple times a day. The anti-gun narrative that says otherwise is clearly fake news.
