Is this true? I have been unable to find an exact statistic for this. Arguing with liberal friend.

from that we can conclude that the american people need more guns

Nice "facts"

Yeah if you don't have a gun you get robbed.

If you have a gun you won't get robbed so it wouldn't be reported as robbery.

>>61079637
Translation:
99% of robberies are unsuccessful when the would-be victim has a gun.
100% of sexual assaults are unsuccessful when the would-be victim has a gun.

If you have a gun, you'll probably prevent the sexual assault from even taking place

Fucking lol. Its a stupid question, you probably didn't get raped and robbed while you are packing heat so its not a rape or robbery
>>
>>61079637
There is no statistics because that detail is rarely recorded. Even the FBI can only estimate the use of a firearm in self defence because it is a metric that does not get recorded.

> Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year…in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms.

That is from the cdc study obama ordered after sandy hook

Also, the gun grabbers ignore all instances when the gun is not fired, just used to control the attacker.

>Citing four separate studies between 1988-2004, the assessment from the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council says crime victims who use guns in self-defense have consistently lower injury rates than victims who use other strategies to protect themselves (other strategies include stalling, calling the police or using weapons such as knives or baseball bats).

http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-12-27/how-often-do-we-use-guns-in-self-defense
>Hemenway finds more reliable an annual federal government research project, called the National Crime Victimization Survey, which yields estimates in the neighborhood of 100,000 defensive gun uses per year. Making various reasonable-sounding adjustments, other social scientists have suggested that perhaps a figure somewhere between 250,000 and 370,000 might be more accurate.

They can fuck off

>>61080646
sometimes they even ignore all non-fatal encounters. So if you don't kill your attacker you technically "did not use a gun to defend yourself".

If they didn't misrepresent they'd have no argument
Facts are just against them

But seriously, most of these types of crimes occur in big cities which are usually run by Democrats and they dont allow CCW

>guns are used by victims in X

The statistics are so low because those who have guns aren't made into victims, they're able to protect themselves from victimhood.

How many victims of robbery actually had guns?
How many victims of sexual assault and assault had guns?

Almost none, because the ones who did have guns never became victims.
>>
>>61079637
Probably because people with guns wouldn't have become victims.
>>
>>61079637
Its hard to register a robbery and a rape when there is none, because you had a gun.

Fucking idiots.

These are beautiful guys, thank you

Good work Brazil, keep it up and maybe we will give you green card, bring multiple phat ass light skinned girls and maybe citizenship for you.

>>61079637
Because its not robbery if you killed the guy robbing you. Its a case of attempted robbery.
