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 Robyn Street 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. (18-minute podcast)

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

First story-  Are you armed at home?

It is sunrise on Sunday morning. You hear your dog bark. Your wife and two young kids are asleep, so you pad downstairs to see what is bothering the dog. A man is standing inside your screen porch trying to get into your house. You grab your 22 rifle and walk out the side door. You enter your porch and tell the man to lie down. He does. You call police.

The policeman fights with the suspect to take him into custody. The intruder faces charges of breaking and entering, possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting a public officer.

Second Story-  Are you armed when you go shopping?

It is dark outside. You finished your shopping and walk to your car. You set your purse and packages inside. You try to close your car door, but a man has grabbed the door. He tells you to get out of your car and give him the keys. He shouts at you. You grab your gun from your purse. You step out of your car and point your gun at your attacker. He has a hatchet in his hand. You tell him to leave. He raises his hand and you shoot him once in the center of the chest. He falls. You keep your gun on him and shout for people coming out of the store to call police.

Third story- Are you armed when you’re at home?

You’re in your bedroom at the back of the house. It is 9:30 at night when you hear shouting from the front door. Then you hear gunshots and you hear one of your housemates shout in pain. You grab your gun and walk toward the noise. An older man who lives at the house is on his knees and looks hurt. A stranger is standing in the front room yelling that he wants his money. The stranger raises his gun and you shoot the intruder. Now he runs. You call police and EMTs.

The police arrest the wounded robber and take him to the hospital.

There are a couple of million instances such as these and they are not covered by the mainstream media. It doesn’t fit their agenda to rob citizens of their RIGHT to protect themselves.
WHEN all the guns have been taken.
WHEN all speech has been censored.
WHEN history has been erased.
WHEN all freedom is gone.
WHEN we are unable to defend ourselves.
Only THEN will you understand why our right to bear arms was so high on the list.

Since when are these documented stories? Merely scenarios and useless.

Stay alert. Stay armed. Practice. The police can only show up AFTER your dead.
