It’s almost like shooting fish in a barrel.
Again, we use Kleck’s own survey numbers and compare them with actual stats; hilarity ensues.
Kleck acknowledges there are some 550,000 gun crimes annually in the US. According to Kleck’s DGU ’study’, 18% of all DGUs involved an assailant who had a firearm.
Away we go to Mr. Calculator:
.18 (% of DGUs involving a gun-toting assailant) x 2.5M DGUs = 450,000 DGUs involving gun-toting assailant
450,000 DGUs involving gun-toting assailant/550,000 gun crimes annually = 82% of all gun crimes foiled by DGU.
