The Armed Citizen is Commited to the Preservation of the Second Amendment and the Right to Self-Defense
Civilians use firearms in lawful self-defense about 2.5 million times a year in the United States. In about 92 percent of these cases, a firearm is merely displayed, with no shot fired, so most such incidents are not reported to police or the press. This fact helps create a false impression known to criminologists as “the police chiefs’ fallacy.” In most cases where the police become involved, the defender failed, so police officers may develop the sincere belief that civilians are incapable of defending themselves. This has been shown as false by numerous research studies.
