This study was commissioned by the White House and confirms what many gun owners have been saying for years. His letter disputed the number of defensive gun uses that were often cited. To the surprise of the authors, the study found that gun ownership actually saves lives and those who have a firearm at their disposal improve their chances of survival and reduce their chance of injury in the event a violent criminal confronts them. It also states, 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.

To the surprise of the authors and those who would no doubt have used the report to further restrict access to personal defense firearms, the study found that gun ownership actually saves lives and those who have a firearm at their disposal improve their chances of survival and reduce their chance of injury in the event they are confronted by a violent criminal.

How we have more facts to combat Gun Control.
