he estimated that all types of guns are used defensively about a million times a year.

Gee, I wonder how many of the perps died in these incidents?

Additionally, since those would technically be homicides, even if no charges are filed, I wonder how many of those are reported as homicides with guns as the cause of death? We need to subtract out the number of people who died from GSWs while they were committing a crime from the gun/death statistics. Those lives may be valuable, but their deaths should not be objectionable.


What do you want to bet those on the left are not subtracting those out of the numbers?
