According to Dr. Gary Kleck, criminologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee and author of "Point Blank: Guns and Violence in America," a book used by many in the gun debate, 800,000-2,500,000 crimes are stopped by guns each year. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_crimes_are_stopped_by_gun... But of course violent crime rate is 4.3 times worse in the UK, because of their gun ban. We need to go on the offensive and help the UK solve their violent crime problem. Bring in guns!
