Louisiana- -(Ammoland.com)- 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 Tracy Thronburg 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. (14 minute podcast)
All three victims survived lethal attacks..because they had a gun.
You are a 69 years old woman. You’ve been out for the day, but when you arrive home, you notice that your side door has been damaged. You walk into your home. There are several things missing. You call police, and they take a report. That night at about 11 pm you hear someone prying through the damaged door. You’re armed. You shoot the intruder as they enter your home. You call police again. This time the police race to the scene.
You’re walking in your backyard with your son. You’re about ready to go in for lunch when an armed stranger runs into your yard. The intruder shouts at you and raises his gun. You are carrying concealed. You present your handgun and shoot quickly. Unfortunately you miss. Fortunately the thief drops his gun and puts up his hands. You hear sirens, and shout for police. Why would an armed man run into your yard and how did the police get there so fast?
A couple was standing in their home or close to the home outside. This story is reported both ways, so take your pick. They are argueing with three teenagers. The teenagers attacked the couple. One of the couple was armed, and presented their firearm for self-defense. The young men ran. The couple called police. They asked for medical attention when the police arrived.
One report called the young men gang members since one of them was in his twenties.
