Among state and federal prison inmates convicted of using a firearm, less than 2 percent used a military-style semi-automatic.

… studies show guns stop more crime than they cause…

&

The best empirical research on the matter finds that, where gun ownership levels are highest, in fact, homicide rates are far lower.

&

Somewhere around 0.8 to 2.0 million violent crimes are deterred each year because of gun ownership and use by civilians. In addition, another 1.5 to 2.5 million crimes are stopped by armed civilians.

… each year in the U.S. there are about 2.2 to 2.5 million DGUs [Defensive Gun Uses] of all types by civilians against humans…

Study authors Clayton Cramer and David Burnett examined, among other things, news accounts of defensive uses of guns during the past eight years.  As the report points out, many incidents of defensive gun use do not involve discharge of the weapon, and the propensity of the media and anti-gun activists is to mostly disregard such occurrences. Another of the insights is that when a gun is used for defensive purposes, usually more than one crime is prevented.
