USA --(Ammoland.com)- Somewhere, everyday in the USA, 2100+ people use a gun for self defense, to stop a crime or save the lives of themselves or their family.

“We believe that the American public deserve to understand that on the average, guns save 2,191 lives and are used to thwart crimes every day,” says Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation

Most times you won’t see these tales on the news as it does not fit the main stream media’s story line of “Guns and Gun Owners are Bad“.

This is just one of those stories;

An armed robber entered a Phillips 66 gas station in Houston, Texas and demanded money from the clerks on duty.

The clerks responded by retrieving firearms and exchanging gunfire with the criminal. Following an initial shootout, the robber retreated to the rear of the store and started throwing motor oil and windshield wiper fluid all over the store. The standoff between the clerks and gunman lasted for almost an hour, until one of the clerks shot the robber when he came out from behind an aisle.

Not yet finished with his crime spree, the wounded criminal then started a fire in the store. Eventually police arrived at the store and captured the criminal. The owner of the store estimated that the robber caused close to $100,000 in damage to the store.

Neither clerk was injured during the incident. (KTRK, Houston, Texas, 03/15/14)

    1. Phillips 66 has a lousy corporate attitude on guns, at least evidenced by Jim Mulva, a recent CEO. I hope the station was owned by an independent and the clerk remains employed.

    2. These clerks need to go back to the range AND get some good training. Multiple clerks against 1 criminal. The $100,000 worth of damage could have been averted with a couple of well placed shots. I know you are only 60% as proficient under stress as you are on your best day on the range, but it would appear these clerks never make it to the range or to practice. Just because yo have a hand gun doesn’t mean you know how to use it.
