18. Certainly there were more than 85 genuine DGU saves in that same period.
Edited on Wed Nov-18-09 01:28 PM by GreenStormCloud
Even under the tightest measures, there are thousands (Personally I go with the millions figure.)of defensive gun uses per year. The number of lives saved by CCW uses of guns would easily be greater than the 85 killed.
