... Armed private citizens fatally shot 334 people last year...

How many of those were "justifiable homicides"?

You're welcome to try (and fail) to contradict their data cited from the FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2019.

From the article:

"Interestingly, while homicides declined last year, gun ownership continued to rise. The 2019 UCR tends to refute the long-running argument that more guns will result in more violent crime; an argument that has been repeated over the years in an attempt to justify more gun control demands."

Gee, I wonder what'll happen to those numbers during the upcoming depression.

I repeat my answer. All of 'em. Second graphic labeled "Justifiable Homicide," third column "Total Firearms," 2019 "334." Again, all of 'em.

".. Armed private citizens fatally shot 334 people last year..."

Say what?

In 2017, the most recent year for which complete data is available, 39,773 people died from gun-related injuries in the U.S., according to the CDC. This figure includes gun murders and gun suicides, along with three other, less common types of gun-related deaths tracked by the CDC: those that were unintentional, involved law enforcement or whose circumstances could not be determined.

So like... 1% are justifiable homicides...

Nevermind that someone's dream is to shoot the President...

MY dream is more more important than the President getting shot. Small price to pay, really, for freedom.

He knew the risks when he signed up.
