How many people use guns for security?

There are really no firm numbers to answer this question- but it would be several millions of people. They would include the farmer that keeps a shotgun for protection of his livestock from wild animals, the merchant that keeps a handgun for protection from an armed robbery, and the private citizen that keeps a firearm for personal defense from a mugger. This does not include law enforcement officers, military, or private security staff, like the guard at the bank, or the driver of the armored car that carries money from a business to the bank. There are estimates that firearms are used for defense by private citizens in the US several million times each year.
