Louisiana- -(Ammoland.com)- Here is some news you won't find in the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend 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. (19 minute podcast)
All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You’re a mom. It is 1:30 in the morning and you’re sleeping upstairs with your young child. You live outside of San Antonio, Texas. You hear banging at your front door, and then you hear someone shout
“Open UP! SAPD!”
You’re only half awake, but that doesn’t make sense. You live outside of San Antonio and are covered by the Bexar (BEHAR) county sheriff’s department. You get out of bed and look out your upstairs window. You don’t see a police car in the driveway or out on the street. You grab your gun and your cell phone. Then you call 911 and wait at the top of the stairs.
You’re running on a local trail before dawn. You hear a woman scream. You slow down and look to see where the screams came from. A man is holding a woman on the ground and she’s fighting him. You grab your flashlight and a gun from your fanny pack. You shine the light on the couple. The man is sitting on top of the woman, and pressing his hand over her mouth. You see her struggle.
You point your gun at the attacker and tell him to get away from the women. He does, but he runs away with her shoes and her shorts. You let him go.
You’re working in a convenience store at 2AM. A man grabs two packs of cigarettes and walks up to the register. He pulls a knife and demands the money in the cash register. You back away, but the attacker pursues you until you’re backed into a corner.
