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 Tony Simon 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. (17 minute podcast)
All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You are a 62 year old man. You’re at home in your apartment at 9 in the evening. You hear a crash as a strange man breaks through your front door. He has a knife and demands your money and wallet. You say it is right over here. You take your gun from a bedroom drawer and shoot your attacker once. The intruder runs. You call police.
You’re 29 years old. You’re helping your mom pack her things. Your mom is moving and your uncle doesn’t like it. Your uncle threatens your mom with a knife. She pushes him away, and he cuts her. You step between them. Now, your uncle stabs you. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker. Now he steps back. So do you and the rest of your family.
Your family call the police, and the EMTs.
You get a call from your step daughter. She already called police after her roommate stole her prescription medications. The roommate then ran over a stranger in the parking lot outside their apartment. You arrive and you are armed. You help your step daughter back into her apartment. The roommate returns as well. He is carrying a hammer this time, and you tell him to stop where he is. He is yelling curses at you as he advances. You draw your handgun and again you tell the attacker to stop. This time, he does. He runs away. You call the police. The attacker is arrested and charged with assault causing bodily injury and for deadly conduct.
