    That isn't monitored that I know of. The stats kept by the FBI don't specify whether or not the victim was a criminal or not. The only thing I do know is this. Of the roughly 8,500 firearm related homicides in 2011, 400 were deemed justified by law enforcement and a further 260 were justified by a jury.

    To me that means that 660 were deemed to be self defense or defense of another person in immediate danger etc. IMHO if a criminal kills another criminal that is perfectly acceptable to me, it means we didn't have to spend as much money housing that person in a prison.
