18. There are several websites that document actual incidents of self-defense.
While these do not equate to the full spectrum of data, esimates range from 750,000 to 2.5 million incidents of fire-arms related self-defense annually. My reading leads me to lean towards the lower end of that scale, but still an impressively significant number.

Most cases do not result in shots fired. It is vanishingly rare that when shots are fire, a by-stander is injured by the defending party. In short, legal carriers are not the problem.
