Ordinary people protected themselves and the people they love. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they trained and prepared? What should we do if we were in their place? Listen and find out. (13 minutes)
All three victims survived lethal attacks..because they had a gun.
- First story- Are you armed at home in the afternoon? It is just after dinner when you hear someone coming through your front door. You ask the stranger why he entered your house. He pulls a stun gun and shocks you..several times. You fall to the floor. The robber starts gathering your possessions. After a minute you can stand. You grab your gun and defend yourself.
- Second Story- Do you have a gun nearby early in the morning? You hear a loud bang. You’re not sure what it means until you hear people inside your apartment. It’s five in the morning. You lock your bedroom door, grab your gun and your phone.
- Third story- Are you armed when you’re walking out of your bank at mid-day? You’re walking out of the local branch of your bank just before noon. You head across the parking lot to your car when a young man approaches you. He has a gun. The gun is pointed at you. “Give me your wallet,” he says. You’re started. You start to step back. The robber raises his gun and says, “Now.”
