Self protection is the answer to you question.  You hardley ever hear of
people who use a gun to protect themselves from a would be killer.  The only
place you can read about it  is in American Rifleman.  This is something
everyone seems to forget.  One of the reasons for having a firearm is to
protect yourself and property.  If more people carried firearms (legally) and
knew how to use them I think there would be less innocent people getting
Another thing to think about are the homicide figures put out.  These numbers
also include justifiable homicides.
