Protect kids sign

In July, they found 10 incidents

If they can find them, the NRA highlights incidents in the news where home owners shoot thief’s attempting break-ins. Their reason is to justify guns in homes for self-defense. But they also are providing for the self-gratification of gun nuts who enjoy the satisfaction of seeing a desperate person shot for attempted theft.

The incidents of homeowners shooting thefts in the act of breaking into their home are actually rare. For example, during the last 72 hours the NRA found 1 incidents of this type of shooting in country. Meanwhile, 84 people were killed by guns during all types of shootings. Too many guns in homes cause many more deaths by accidents and intentional shootings than do guns used to protect the home.
