    ...succesful defensive gun uses to criminal gun uses they are either compairing apples to oranges or are using 'self reported' stats for defensive gun uses.

    And what I mean be apples to oranges they compare a defensive gun use where someone shows a gun at the supposedly scarry person following them and the person wisely goes elsewhere but dont include where a gun is used in a crime unless the gun is discharged.  They also frequently include police uses of guns, like drawing a gun ot a traffic stop as a succesful defensive gun use.

    We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.
