Women Shooter Self Defense Gun
The Self Defense Stories You Don’t See in the Mainstream News

Louisiana- -( 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 joins 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. (12-minute podcast)

All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.

First story-  Are you armed at home?

You’re at home in your apartment around noon. You answer the knock at your door. Two men push their way inside. One of them has a gun. You back away and run upstairs. Your attackers follow you. You draw yours and fire. Both men run. They jump out the upstairs window. You call police. The police arrest one wounded robber a few blocks away.

Second Story- Are you armed at home?

You’re at home on a friday morning. You hear someone in your home. That doesn’t make sense, so you go look what’s happening. A man is standing in your kitchen. You yell at him. He grabs a knife from the kitchen counter. You draw your firearm and tell him to drop the knife and not move. You grab your phone and call police. You also take a picture of the robber. He runs, but is picked up the next day by police. 

Third story- Are you armed at home?

Your mom came by to take your son to the doctors. You are inside your house and your mom has your son loaded into the car. You hear your mom scream. You’re armed and you go outside to see what is happening. An armed man is pointing a gun at your mom. You shoot him several times. He runs to the waiting car and drives away. You check on your son, and then call police.

Only the dumb die young. Lack of knowledge and experience will make you a victum. At 82 I am still active , hhave a full 782 issue and still a good shot with required weapons. Would make my life worthwhile to be back in the ready and not a victum. … Old Marine

How many home invasions would we reading about every day if we didn’t have weapons in our homes? It would be open season on law abiding citizens because we would be without a gun but the criminals would still be armed. Gun control laws are job security for crooks. There would be many more muggings and assaults in public places also.
