Louisiana- -( Here is some news you won’t find in the mainstream media. Responsible gun owners defending themselves and the people they love.

Self-defense instructor Amanda Suffecool joined the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at three new examples.  Were these gun owners lucky, or were they trained and prepared?   What can we learn from their experience? Listen and find out.

All three victims survived lethal attacks..because they had a gun.

First story-  Are you armed as you walk down the street? 

You’re arguing with your on-again, off-again boyfriend as you walk down the street.  The argument escalates.  Your boyfriend hits you.  You yell for him to stop.  He hits you again and grabs your blouse so you can’t run.

Second Story-  Are you armed at home late at night?

You’re in your upstairs apartment just after midnight.  Your three roommates are still awake.  One of your roommates was outside smoking when a stranger started arguing with him.  The stranger said someone called him a name.  The stranger then pushed his way into the apartment and started yelling at your two other roommates.  You walk out of your back room and ask the stranger to leave.  You tell him you’re armed and ask him to leave again.  He attacks you.

Third story- Are you armed when you’re at home?

You’re at home after midnight when your dogs start barking.  You go outside and find a man behind your car.  The man attacks you with a baseball bat.  You try to block the blow, but you’re hit on the head.  You shoot your attacker three times.  He stops attacking you and you crawl away to contact police.

The biggest challenge you will face is letting someone wanting to do you harm within 20′ of you. Lots of studies done on this and even at 20′ its likely you cannot get your firearm out to defend yourself.

However in these examples, just call 911 and let them take of it. Keep a safe distance until you have to defend yourself.
