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 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. (15-minute audio)
All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.
You’re not sure if you heard it or not. You wake up and hear something moving around in your house. You sit up and see someone in your bedroom. You grab your handgun and shoot at the intruder. He runs away. You call police. It is 3:30 in the morning.
You’re walking across the park. In front of you is a rally where a community group is giving away free school supplies to poor kids. You see a guy run up and pull a gun from his pants. This guy starts shooting into the crowd. You see people run. Now the attacker tracks some of the people in the crowd. You draw your gun and shoot the attacker.
You have your carry permit. You holster your gun and wait for police. EMTs take the attacker to the hospital.
You pull up to your house you notice your neighbor being attacked by a man with a knife. You step out of your car. She is screaming and trying to get her two children out of the car seats in the back of her automobile. Her boyfriend is trying to help her, but an attacker was cutting them both with a knife and trying to take the car.
You draw your gun and step between the car and the attacker. Now the attacker runs across the street. You call the police.
When the police finally get there, the assailant drops the knife and attacks the police.
What would you do in these situations?
