63. hey
it's you number and post, prove it. My previous posts on this proved the number can't be real. Look them up. Any fool can see that if there were 2 million defenses uses a year then there would be a crime epidemic. The violent crime rates alone prove that the 2 million number can't be correct. I've done this all before. Prove your 2 million claim, show me where 2 million crimes that required defensive gun uses were reported. Who kept the records?

We both know the answers, either you'll say "in many cases the law abiding gun toting citizen didn't report his attempt to use deadly force" or "I can't provide all that data". Bottom line, the 2 million number is a wet dream, it's not real. Actual statistics involving violent crime disprove it. How many violent crimes were reported in America last year? How many reported crimes involved citizens stopping the crime with their own firearm? Answer those then you'll see how silly the 2 million number is.

Do you actually expect anyone to believe that someone defended themselves with their own firearm and not call law enforcement? If they did then the numbers don't match.Violent crime rates vs 2 million defensive gun uses? Hahahahahah laughable. Your number, your burden of proof. Good luck.
