50. Let's cut the lowest estimate of 108,000 DGUs a year and say
that only 1/4 or 27,000 times per year was the use of a firearm for self defense truly justified because had the victims of a serious attack not had a firearm available they would have suffered serious injury, rape or death.

Let's go even further and say that only 10,000 incidents would have caused such a result.

I hope that you are not so devoid of sympathy that you might say "shit happens".
