I'm seeing the Dead Goblin Count showing up as a link to a lot of forums discussing the CO shooting. Folks are using the DGC exactly as intended - to highlight just how often that firearms are used to defend innocent life. I can't take credit for the DGC - I'm continuing the work that Kim du Toit started with the count - but I'm happy and proud to keep it going. I'd like to extend a HUGE "thank you" to everyone that sends me stories - you folks provide me with the vast majority of DGC additions.
I'd also like to point out Weerdbeard's Gun Death files - for stories of people injured or killed by means other than firearms, as well as Barron's State-Sponsored Criminal Count - for stories of the very reason our Founding Fathers sought to include the right to keep and bear arms. Check these guys out, and if you come across any stories that fit into their compilations, let them know. I like to think that these three lists are the "Second Amendment Trifecta" - my list shows that people do in fact use firearms to protect themselves; Weerd's list shows that even in the absence of firearms people find ways to hurt and kill others; and Barron's list shows that there is a very real and valid reason for keeping arms in the hands of the people.
Thanks to Weerd and Barron for their lists and to everyone that sends us articles!
That is all.
