    No telling how many stories there have been,but i'm guessing most of the media won't ever publish stories like this.

    I agree with you, reporting the news used to be a job and facts were brought forth now it's rating and ego booster and lacking in truth.

    Wow!!

    The BG's had their pistols drawn, and the guy still was able to bust a cap in BOTH of their butts!

    Those must be some mighty fine "roosters" by the way

    Who the H. E. Double Hockey Sticks holds up a guy for roosters?

    Problem is that many politically driven PDs (not most Sheriffs) write defensive use of a firearm as a crime or downgrade the crime, depending on what Gov Grant they are chasing, or the Political Class Mayor or Board tell them to do.

    So the real Stats are hidden by politics. Varies by State and portions of certain States where you can get realistic facts and stats, and where the local reporters can get access to the jucy stories to report. A simple legally pulled a legally defensive handgun, and BG ran away will not make the news.

    The lawful use of firearms by legal owners in the US, to defend themselves, others or legal situations where property can be protected, is WAY underreported.

    Most jurisdictions report shootings as "Violent Crimes" (which they are), but fail to delete the majority of the numbers which were soon discovered to be "Justified Shootings" of armed Felons by Good Citizens, which includes on & off duty LEOs.

    Much 'Violent Crime' is Criminal on Criminal, usually Gang on Gang, where no good citizens are involved..... even as victims.

    True "Violent Crime" against "Innocents" in the U.S. is near a 40 year low (FBI Violent Crime Index) and would be difficult to lower from its current numbers, despite Firearm Ownership by good citizens being at its Highest in History.

    Chicago, D.C., L.A. and a few other Anti-American / Anti-Constitutional venues are becoming the last havens for Violent Criminals.

    Excellent story. Awesome. I particularly like this quote: "The men both drew handguns, but were unable to get the drop on the homeowner, who drew his own firearm and shot both men."

    Read the article linked in one of the comments. (http://www.valleycentral.com/news/st...4#.Um9Y653n-cz)

    This may not have been the best story to use for number 1,000.

    If handguns were legal in Chiraq (aka Chicago ) and NYC they would break this record in a month.
