- First story- Are you armed as you drive down the street? A couple were driving in Midtown Atlanta. The driver in front of them jumped out of his car and and tried to take theirs. The victims stopped and the two men struggled. That is when the female victim in the passenger seat drew her gun and shot their attacker.
- Second Story- Are you armed at work? The store owner and his employee had opened the store only a few minutes earlier. They already had two customers when two more men entered. The second pair were wearing ski-masks and carrying guns. The robbers said, “Get down on the floor. Get down on the floor or I’ll kill you.” The store owner was armed.
- Third story- Are you armed as you arrive home after work? A Wilmington woman arrived home after work at 11 in the evening. She had a cup in one hand with her keys. She was talking to her dad on the phone while she unlocked her apartment door. That is when a man pushed her inside. Her attacker choked her, dragged her to her bedroom and tied her up.
