Self Defense Roundup for May 18, 2014 – 3 Documented Defensive Gun Uses
Today’s stories include a defensive gun use from Montana, Maine, and Indiana. This is only the third documented defensive gun use in Maine and only the fourth in Montana. These stories bring our total documented defensive gun use count to 1,130.
For many defensive gun use stories there is simply not enough information to write a full article, or we get backlogged due to a high number of stories, so we occasionally publish a defensive gun use round-up to cover the stories from the last several days that fall into these categories.
We feel it is still important to document these stories in order to keep the total count of documented defensive gun uses more accurate.
