     That certainly sounds like a high-level of  defense to me. Also, not all use of self-defense is reported.

Again, the number is in dispute and 3 million seems ridiculously high given the low crime rate we have now. A Pew survey showed 24% of Americans own a gun. That is 77.5 million people. You're saying that on average 1 in 26 gun owners used their gun in self defense each year? According to FBI statistics, there were only 1,300,000 violent crimes in all of 2016. You're saying gun owners defended themselves far more often that there were even instances of violent crime.
