All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
- First story- Are you armed at home? This time you hear a noise downstairs. It’s just after 1 in the morning and you recognize the sound of your downstairs windows being forced open. You live in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama, and your house has been robbed 13 times in the last ten months. You’re 79 years old and you hear the two robbers coming upstairs from the basement. That is when you grab your firearm.
- Second story- Are you armed when you’re in your apartment at 8 in the morning on a weekday? You’ve only lived here for a few months. You had to leave your old place because you have a stalker. Now, your ex-boyfriend won’t leave you alone. He’s already found this new place. He’s here again, and calling from the front door. You call to your brother who is staying with you. Your stalker kicks in the front door. He’s armed with a gun.
- Third Story- Are you armed at home? The first thing you hear is a terrible crash from the back of your parents home. You walk towards the sound and wonder if your folks are alright. You see three stranger men dressed in black standing in the back of your folks home. They’ve just kicked in the back door. Your folks are not in sight.
