U.S.A.– (Ammoland.com)- Here is the news you don't get from the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love.
Self-defense instructor Robyn Street joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they practice and have a plan? What can we learn from their experience? (24-minute audio)
These victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun..and a plan.

It is three in the morning. You’re upstairs in your bedroom. You hear someone banging on your front door. Before you know what is happening, you hear glass breaking and someone coming up the stairs. You keep your rifle in your bedroom closet. You grab your gun and wait to see what happens. You shoot the intruder when he comes down the hall toward your bedroom. Now the intruder runs away. You find your phone and call police.
It is after midnight when you hear someone yelling in your backyard. You and your wife go outside and see a middle aged woman who is obviously drunk or on drugs. You ask her to leave. A few seconds later, two young men come into your yard. You ask them to leave also. They pull guns out of their pockets and announce a robbery.
You’re armed. You draw your firearm and shoot the two young men. They run away. The two of you go inside and call police. The police pickup the two wounded robbers and take them to the hospital. The two young men and the middle aged woman were responsible for six robberies and assaults in the last three days.
You’re cleaning up and getting your kids ready for the day when someone shows up at your front door. You have a stalker. You’ve taken out a restraining order, but here he is again. You tell him to go away and that you’re armed. You tell your kids to go to the back of the house.
Your stalker walks in through the front door. He has a hammer in his hand. You’re armed and you shoot your attacker one time. Then, he turns around and runs from your home.
Now you call your kids to make sure they are OK. You put away your gun and call the police. They arrest your stalker nearby. He’s taken to the hospital for minor injuries. He is charged with robbery, burglary, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon.
It is 9 am on a weekday. You’re getting your hearing-aid shop ready for the day. One of your employees shouts for you to look at something outside. You see an armed man approaching cars and businesses in the strip mall. You check that your front door is locked, and it is. You duck out the back of your store to lock your car doors. That is when the armed man comes around the corner and points his gun at you.
You have your Florida concealed carry license. You’re armed. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker. You run inside and call the police. Your attacker had ten previous convictions for drug possession.
