Gun Self Defense Blog passes a milestone
Clayton Cramer's gun self defense blog just chronicled its 4,000th such incident, and pauses to list a few conclusions:
In six cases, the criminal managed to get a gun away from the defender, but in 183 cases the defender managed to get a gun away from the criminal.
There was exactly one case of mistaken identity among the 4,000 -- and the shooting there began with the officers, who thought the defender was an armed burglar. Nobody was hurt.
