All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You’re at home at 10 in the evening. You hear someone breaking the back window of your home. You grab your gun and investigate. You see a stranger standing in the back of your home. He has a knife. You shout for him to leave. He shouts back. You shoot. Now he runs.
You call the police.
The police find the robber next to your home and take him to the hospital. Your attacker was arrested for burglary and drug possession. He is out of state prison on parole.
You were attacked by your boyfriend. You want to stay with your family for a few days, so you drive to your home to get some clothes. Your boyfriend appears from around the corner of the house. He orders you inside. Your child is in the car and you say you have to drop him off first. Your kidnapper gets in the car. He turns away and talks to the child. You grab his gun and get out of the car.
The kidnapper runs and you shoot at him. You call the police and they find your attacker nearby. He is charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping, and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.
You’re a barber. You are at work in your shop when you hear gunshots coming from the small grocery store next door. You look outside and the glass at the front of the grocery store shatters. You get against the wall. A man runs out of the store and continues to shoot into the building the store owner chases him. The robber continues to shoot and you see that your neighbor is hit. You draw your firearm and shoot the robber. Now he runs. The Indian woman who owns the store in injured and you go to help her. Someone calls the police.
