I actually like this one more:

http://www.justfacts.com/guncontrol.asp

The site doesn't seem to be so single-issue focused.

Not statistics, but merely a collection of examples I've come across of Good Guys using LTCs to save lives, currently at 50:

Sometimes real life examples/videos can move people more than dry statistics. Best to have both available to use.

While my list only has LTC/CCWers (or off-duty LEOs ("virtual" LTCers)), the NRA's Armed Citizen column also has examples of people using guns to save lives at businesses and residences:

I suggest that you buy the book "More Guns, Less Crime" by John Lott. If you're arguing gun statistics that is your best resource. I think it's in it's 3rd edition now.

It's worth every penny, and surprisingly not as dry as a book of statistics would be expected to be, imo.

But the gun-control nuts don't understand statistics, so there's little point.

They want to live in a world where there are no guns; statistics do not give them that.

X1000 My second biggest issue with anti gun people as they just won't admit they just want guns gone regardless of the facts.
