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 David Cole 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 at home late at night?

This isn’t your first hurricane, but all storms bring a lot of wind and rain. You’re staying home to ride this one out.  That doesn’t mean it is quiet outside.  There is the roar of the storm, but then you hear a different sound.  Someone is breaking into your home at 11 at night.  You’ve lost power, so you walk toward the sound through your darkened home.  You see an intruder in your home. You shout for him to leave.  The intruder moves moves toward you, and you shoot him.

You retreat to your bedroom and call police on your cell phone.  They pick up the injured intruder from the front of your home and take him to the hospital.

Second Story-  Are you armed as you walk home?

You’re walking home from the shopping center with your son.  It is after dark, and you just withdrew some cash at the automatic teller machine.  Now you’re walking past the houses in your neighborhood when a young man runs up behind you.  He hits you in the back of the head with a rock.  You fall to the ground.  You roll over as the young man tries to go through your pockets.  You reach into your pocket and present your firearm.  You shoot twice.  The robber runs to a waiting getaway car.

The story doesn’t say who called police and EMTs.  You go to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

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

You’re set for hurricane Harvey to arrive.  You have water, candles and food.  You also have your gun.  It is already hard to travel because of the water covering the roads.  You’re asleep in your darkened home when you hear someone else inside your home.  It is three in the morning.  You leave your bedroom and go see what’s happening.  You find a stranger inside your home.  He moves toward you and you shoot.

Then you have to call police..and fix a broken night..during a storm.
