I would like to see a category for stories relating to actual situations where bodily harm was avoided, or not avoided through actions of the armed ( fist, knife, bat , gun, tank ) citizen (& LEO). I would assume that most stories would come from published accounts. Many folks have guns for personal protection, but have no idea the many ways that situations come down. I recognize that these stories can be presently posted, but a separate compendium would be instructional. This would be more of a resource. Are there any URL's where these stories are available?

FWIW I like this idea. Sure would make finding rebuttals to "they'll just take it away from you and use it on you"or "guns just make is worse" easier.

Be careful what you ask for..You may get it.
An unloaded pistol is a paperweight.

FUD could post, but so could others. I would hope that local stories which never make the national news would be passed on to the rest of us. Whenever a gun is used, the national press goes silent. Sometimes, local press will report a pro-gun story due to a lack of local news. Of course, most local reporting would be wanting in detail.

That would be the main problem..the lack of detail. This would limit the educational experience.
