Self Defense Stories You Don’t See in the Mainstream News

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 David Cole 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. (13-minute audio)

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

First story-  Are you armed at home?

You’ve finished the dishes and are cleaning up when you hear a woman scream from the front of your home. You walk outside and see three teenagers beating a pregnant woman on the sidewalk in front of your house. One of the teens is hitting the pregnant woman with a handgun. You draw your firearm and point it at the attacker. “Stop! Drop the gun or I’ll drop you,” you shout.  The attacker drops the gun and all three teens run away.

The victim was a Dominos Pizza delivery driver. The three teenage attackers lured her to the house next door where they waited to rob her of her money and her car. EMTs took the victim to the hospital for observation. Police arrested and charged the teenagers, two boys and a girl, all 16 years old.

Second Story-  Are you armed at home?

It is the afternoon when you hear someone trying to break into your basement door. You get your gun. The intruder walks up onto your back porch and tries to open your back door. The door is locked. You shout for the stranger to go away and that you are armed. The man picks up a retaining wall stone and breaks the glass of your back door. Then he reaches inside to unlock the door. Your two daughters are inside behind you. You shoot your invader. Now he runs and you call police.

EMTs take him to the hospital. Police report that the intruder met your daughter online and he lives in another country.

Third story- Are you armed when you’re getting a cup of coffee? 

It is early in the morning. You pull into a convenience store for gas and a cup of coffee. You’re walking to the register when you see the reaction on the clerk’s face. You turn around and see a man wearing a hoodie and a black mask over his face. He has a gun in his hand. The clerk runs out the back of the store. You draw your gun and step to the side. The thief turns around and runs. He’d robbed another store a half hour earlier.

New York state is no, repeat NOT, where you want to live … unless, of course, you are a criminal …


Try protecting yourself in N.Y.S. It’s go to jail (YOU) first, than the crook can SUE you for stopping him OR if you kill him , His family can SUE you . In the mean time you LOOSE your right to have a firearm Must Find legal help AND Lay out VAST AMOUNTS OF CASH to prove you did not door wrong.

I’m NOT surprised. Sounds like England. We’re not happy with the gun laws in Illinois, but they’re sure better than that. For the time being, anyway. If Pritzker gets elected, it’s time to move!


Pritzker is completely anti-gun and has said that he’ll sign any anti-gun legislation that he’s presented with. I work for US LawShield and there are benefits to having to having self-defense insurance or coverage.
