It is early Sunday morning when you drive up to your apartment complex. You enter your security code to open the gate. You drive up to your garage and press the door opener to raise your garage door. Then, you close the garage door and get out of your car. That is when an armed attacker hits you in the head with his gun.
You step back. You’re armed. You draw and fire as you back into your house. That is where you call the police. They find the unresponsive robber in the corner of your garage.
Evidently the robber was hiding nearby as you opened your garage door.
It is 5:30 in the evening on a weekday eve. You work at a cell phone store. Another customer comes in. You’re standing behind the cash register working with another customer. A customer walks up and stands in line. Another employee asks the new customer if he can help him. The customer pulls out a knife and demands the money from the register. Every one backs away. So do you, except you have your concealed carry permit and you’re armed. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker several times as you back away from the sales counter. The robber runs out the door.
You ask your co-worker to call the police. You go outside and tell the barber who works next door that you were robbed. You also ask the barber to call the police and to lock his door. A group of people in the parking lot are standing around your attacker shouting for him to tie a tourniquet around his leg. EMTs arrive and take your attacker to the hospital.
You and your friend stepped out of the gas station. It is almost ten at night when you walk across the parking lot a stranger steps out from between two cars. The stranger has a gun and demands your wallet and phone. You’re being robbed.
You have your concealed carry permit. You’re armed. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker three times as you step back. You and your friend both run away from the attack.
You call police and EMTs. They take your attacker to the hospital.
You’re startled awake by the sound of glass breaking. It is after midnight and you were asleep in your own bed. You call police and tell them someone is downstairs in your home. You grab your gun and hide in the closet. You hear someone come up the stairs. You shoot the intruder after he entered your bedroom and starts toward you. You tell the dispatcher to send EMTs.
