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 Tiffany Johnson 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. (19-minute podcast)
All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You have to arrive at work before 6AM. It is still dark when you follow other cars into the lot. You park, and before you can get out of your car, another car pulls up right behind you. There is a man with a gun standing at your door. You’re armed and have your concealed carry license. It isn’t clear from the story if you shot while you were seated or if you got out of the car first.
The car behind you takes off. You call police. They said your attacker had two felony convictions.
You are a couple in your 70s. It is after midnight when you hear someone break into your home. The male homeowner gets out of bed and grabs his firearm. He finds a stranger in the bathroom. The intruder attacks the male homeowner. Eventually, you shoot your attacker..and so does the female homeowner..with her 357 revolver.
The intruder runs away. He is out on parole with a long record of convictions.
You’re driving your car down the road at 9 in the morning. You notice a police car ahead. The officer and another man are wrestling in the ditch at the side of the road. You stop your car. As you walk towards the officer you draw your firearm. The suspect sees your gun and rolls over on his stomach.
You holster your firearm as police arrive. The vehicle the officer stopped was being used as a meth lab. The suspect was charged with possession of methamphetamine, resisting a public officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a revoked license.
