Louisiana- -(Ammoland.com)- Here is some news you won't find in the mainstream media. These are responsible gun owners defending themselves and the people they love.
Self-defense instructor Robyn Street 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. (18 minute podcast)
All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You are in your room, but you hear a crash at your front door. There are voices and then shouts. You hear a stranger order your three roommates to go down to the basement. The robber says he has a gun. You duck back into your room and grab your own gun. You wonder if you should go downstairs to help your friends. A few moments later, you see your roommates coming back up the stairs with the armed robber behind them. You shoot the robber several times. He drops the gun and all of you run outside.
You call police.
You are driving around the grounds of the Grand Strand Baptist Church. It is dark, and a man waves for you to stop. He asks if you have change for a 20 dollar bill. You get out of your car and start to make change. That is when the stranger draws his gun and points it at you. He demands your money.
You hand over your wallet. As the robber walks away, you draw your own handgun. The robber turns and shoots at you. Fortunately, he misses. You fire back and wound the robber. The robber runs away and you call the police.
You’re at home with your two small children. It is 10:30 in the morning when you hear strange sounds coming from your back door. Two men have entered your back porch and are prying at the back door to your house. You step back and grab your handgun. Then you walk towards the intruders and yell for them to get out of your house. The intruders run. You call police.
