In his letter Monday, Lee S. Bowers (and undoubtedly countless others) wonders why we almost never see stories in the mainstream media about licensed gun owners who heroically protect themselves or their loved ones from harm.

For the answer, look no further than the anti-gun "anointed one" in the White House.

For the information, you can turn to several organizations which regularly publish such stories from all over the country. Specifically, there is the NRA, the U.S. Concealed Carry Association and Georgia Carry.org.

For the ultimate solution, we can go to the polls in November of this year and then work toward really fixing things during the next presidential election.
