    A somewhat more conservative NSPOF estimate is shown in the column of exhibit 7 that reflects the application of the criteria used by Kleck and Gertz to identify "genuine" defensive gun uses (DGUs). Respondents were excluded on the basis of the most recent DGU description for any of the following reasons: the respondent did not see a perpetrator; the respondent could not state a specific crime that was involved in the incident; or the respondent did not actually display the gun or mention it to the perpetrator.

    Applying those restrictions leaves 19 NSPOF respondents (0.8 percent of the sample), representing 1.5 million defensive users. This estimate is directly comparable to the well-known estimate of Kleck and Gertz, shown in the last column of exhibit 7. While the NSPOF estimate is smaller, it is statistically plausible that the difference is due to sampling error. Inclusion of multiple DGUs reported by half of the 19 NSPOF respondents increases the estimate to 4.7 million DGUs.

    Some troubling comparisons. If the DGU numbers are in the right ballpark, millions of attempted assaults, thefts, and break-ins were foiled by armed citizens during the 12-month period. According to these results," ......guns are used far more often to defend against crime than to perpetrate crime". ..........(Firearms were used by perpetrators in 1.07 million incidents of violent crime in 1994, according to NCVS data.)

    A DOJ study, guns are used far more often to defend against crime than to perpetrate crime".

    The Neosho, Mo. police dept had six old rifles for 27 officers. They asked a gun store to repair them. Instead he traded them 27 new rifles, so each officer had one. The store covered the difference. The rifles use their Glock pistol magazines. The new rifles would have retailed for $27,000. 2 retired cops own the store.

    In Brazil, all firearms are required to be registered with the minimum age for gun ownership being 25.[1] It is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence, and a special permit granting the right to do so is granted to certain groups, such as law enforcement officers.[2]To legally own a gun, an owner must hold a gun license, which costs R$1000,[2] and pay a fee every three years to register the gun, currently at R$85.[3] Registration can be done online or in person with the Federal Police.[4] Until 2008, unregistered guns could be legalized for free.[5]

    Now how did this happen? You're not supposed to take your gun out of your residence.
