    Each year law-abiding citizens use guns approximately 2.5 million times to defend themselves against criminals.1 Women use guns as many as 561 times each day to defend themselves against sexual abuse.2 A gun in the home is 216 times more likely to be used in defense against a criminal than it is to cause the death of an innocent household member.3 Listed below are but a few of the thousands of situations in which a women have used a weapon in defense of life or property.

    TRY TELLING THE DEMOKRATS THAT. THEY SEEM TO IGNORE PROVEN FACTS FOR UNTRUTHS AND MISINFORMATION. ROSIE O'DONNEL CAN AFFORD A BODYGUARD AND SEEMS TO THINK EVERYOTHER WOMAN CAN AFFORD ONE TOO.

    Libs do not care about the results of any policy or statistics that do not agree with their "logic".

    Hi doglips,an obsevation from a fellow Floridian,i have noticed lately that a lot of threads have been closed.I don't come on this forum as much as I used to and this is the first time I have noticed it.The closings seem to come on sensitive subject threads just when the raving is really getting going.I guess one must be careful and not rave too much,especially about controversial subjects.I noticed in the past sometimes we would get personal and attack each other which I feel is definatly the wrong thing to do,but this might be getting a little too much.
    Gosh,a body can't even get a good rave in without the lid coming down,or am I wrong since I don't keep up as much as I used to?:confused: :confused: :confused: :D
