Gun toting losers likely to kill people, not for self-defense!!!

Looks like the gun lobby hasn't been able to hide all the available statistics to determine the effect guns have on society:
A new study attempts to debunk the claim that gun owners rely on their firearms for self-defense.

The Violence Policy Center released a study Wednesday that finds people are much more likely to use a gun to kill someone without cause than to protect themselves. According to the study, gun owners committed 259 justifiable homicides compared to 8,342 criminal homicides in 2012, the most recent year data was available.

That means gun owners are 32 times more likely to kill someone without cause than to act in self-defense, the study reasoned.

One of the best ways to protect oneself from the crimes is to practice the most feasible action that should be taken when in threatening situation over and over again. Get oneself aware of all possible self defense techniques which one can employ.
