At Home, on the Street, and at Work- More Self-Defense Gun Stories

Louisiana –-(Ammoland.com)- Here is the news you won't get from the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love.

Self-defense instructor Andee Reardon O'Brion joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have a plan and training?  What can we learn from their experience? Listen and find out. (19-minute audio)

These victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun..and a plan.

Click the title links for more info:

First story-  Are you armed as you drive?

You’re selling something online, and you found a buyer. The buyer wants to meet near their home on Saturday night. Three young men approach you when you arrive. They ask if the item is still for sale. You say it is and they ask to see it. Then one of the teenagers pulls a gun on you. You yell and the robber shoots you. You’re armed and you shoot back. The teens run away. You call for help and are taken to the hospital.

The teen who attacked you died on the scene. The police arrest two other teenagers. They are charged with murder and felony robbery. These 15 and 16 year old teens had a record of grand theft. The teenager who shot you was 14 years old.

Second Story-  Do you have your self-defense tools nearby as you sleep?

It is four in the morning when you hear someone bangng on your back door. You get your gun and go to see what is happening. Your back door breaks in with a crash, and a stranger is standing in your home. You shoot at him, and then retreat down the hallway and call police.

The police arrest an 18 year old man who is on drugs inside your sunroom.

Third story- Are you armed at work?

It is after midnight and there are several customers in your vape shop. Another man comes in and grabs one of your customers. The man yells and you think the two men are going to fight, then the attacker draws a gun and demands money from the cash register or he’ll shoot his hostage.

You’ve been robbed before. You have your North Carolina concealed carry permit. You’re armed. You give the robber the money from the till and step to the side. When you have your moment, you draw and shoot the attacker. He drops the hostage and turns toward you. Your attacker fires his gun as you and the hostage back away. You shoot until the threat stops. Then, you call police.

Police have the surveillance video. They identify the getaway driver and the getaway car. Your attacker has a long criminal history including armed assault.

Fourth story- Are you armed when you drive to meet someone?

You’re looking for a playstation. You find one online and the seller says he wants to complete the sale tonight. You drive to the meeting spot and park your car. A man wearing a pillowcase over his head and carrying a rifle approaches your car. He points the rifle at you.

You have your Texas license to carry a handgun. You’re armed. You get out of your car and keep moving. You draw and shoot your attacker. He fires back, but you keep shooting. You move behind some cars and shoot until your attacker runs away. You call police and stay at the scene.

The police think the seller never had a playstation and set you up to rob you.

    Yup, the moral of these stories is keep your gear on, keep your eyes open and be prepared. Got kids? The safest place for your tool of choice is on your person. You know where it is and you have absolute control of it or them. Your tools do no good if you can’t access them in a hurry. Boss won’t allow your tools at work? Conceal the critter well enough that it becomes invisible. Same for when you are visiting places that don’t allow tools (in sight). The average mass shooting lasts under 4 min. The average time it… Read more »

    This goes back a few years ago, my daughter was married and her and her husband had recently purchased a home in a pretty nice neighborhood, but right after they bought the house she asked me if I would take her to to purchase a handgun, and teach her to shoot it, this set off a firestorm from the wife in no time. Talk about heat, long story short, we went and got a pistol and we went to the club I belonged to several times and taught her all of the safe handling and shooting, with no problems, except… Read more »

    I know it is politically correct to picture a woman in these stories, but you are taking this to the extreme. I guess the need to be PC is something you cannot control.

    76% of assaults are on women. I don’t know the stats on home invasion but probably similar if not higher when considering break-ins where the perpetrator knows who is home and not home. I would use the image of a female or an elderly person (male or female) not to be PC, because of probability. I propose that, if all you got out of the article is being offended by a statistically accurate portrayal, you probably aren’t interested in the topic or missed the point entirely.
