Tracking Stories of Self Defense - GunsSaveLives.net

Not sure if this could go here or another section, but anyway, since The Armed Citizen has sort of scaled back since they were sued I've put together a little streamlined site to document cases of self defense with firearms.

http://gunssavelives.net/

Short and sweet. Anyone can submit a news story about a firearm being used in self defense using the Submit a Story link at the site.

Hopefully this will be a good place to send people who say things like, "I don't know why anyone would ever need a gun."

No problem. I'm trying to keep it updated, but ultimately I'm really going to need people to submit stories to keep it viable.

Added a few today. Some new, some old.

Thanks for the encouragement. I hope to avoid similar issues to the Armed Citizen by simply linking to the stories, rather than including a summary/excerpt. This also means I can manage the site in less time than it would take to summarize each story.

Right now I'm mainly trying to work on getting some older stories in there while the stories/videos are still floating around.

Today's updates share a common theme. Stories of children who successfully defended themselves and others using firearms.

And people say children should never be exposed to firearms.

10 Year Old Child in Baton Rouge Shoots Home Invader (2009)
15 Year Old Texas Boy Shoots Burglar, Defends Sister (2010)
11 Year Old Texas Boy Shoots Home Invaders, Defends Mother (2010)
11 Year Old Girl Defends Home with .22 Rifle (2010)
Son Uses Dad’s AR-15 To Defend Home (2010)
