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.
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.
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.
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.
