The numbers are simple. Americans use guns 2 million times a year to protect themselves. Gun's used for self defense outnumber guns used to commit a crime by 60 to 1. Homicides by firearms are 90% drug or gang related. That's about 9000 a year in total. 200,000 women repel a sexual assault with a gun every year.
Crime has gone down since concealed carry legislation was enacted in the 90's.
There are spectacular consequences to having a lot of guns in the country, but those are statistical insignificant.
Guns are primarily a gang problem. It seems like most citizens are pretty responsible about using their guns. A lot of people around here carry. The only time you ever hear about anybody getting shot is gang punks shooting each other.
That's like once a year or something. Who cares?
You are more likely to be killed by lightning than a gun, unless you are hangin with the wrong people. And if you don't try to jack anybody, it's not very likely that you'll get shot by your average Joe with a gun permit.
