By Day and by Night, at Work, at Home, and in Public- More Self Defense Gun Stories

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 Amanda Suffecool joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have good habits? What can we learn from their experience?
(23-minute audio)

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

First story-  Are you armed at work?

You’re working the night shift at a fast food restaurant. It is after midnight so the front doors are closed and people receive their food through the drive through window. You see someone climb through the drive through window, and the intruder has a gun in his hands. You draw your firearm and fire. The intruder runs away and you call the police. The incident was captured on surveillance video.

Second Story-  Are you armed as you drive?

It is 9:30 at night and you’re filling your car at a gas station. You get back in your car when two men walk by. They put a gun in your face and demand your money and keys. You have your Virginia concealed carry license. You’re armed. You undo your seat belt and present your firearm. You shoot the attacker nearest to you. Both of your attackers run away, firing as they run. You call the police.

One of your attackers was taken to the hospital for gunshot wounds. Police charged your attackers with Attempted Robbery, Armed Robbery, Shooting into an Occupied Vehicle, Shooting into an Occupied Building, Use of a firearm in Committing a Felony, Reckless Handling of a Firearm, Felony Damaging Property, Discharging a Firearm in Public, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possess Firearm Under Age, and Conspiracy to Commit a Felony.

Third story- Are you armed at home?

You’re cleaning your home when you hear a noise from the back of the house. It is three in the afternoon and you heard glass breaking. You run to your bedroom and get your gun. You hide in a back closet and call police. You shoot your attacker when he opens the closet door.

Fourth story- Are you armed as you stop for gas?

You and your friend stopped for gas and a soft drink at the convenience store. You notice a police car slowly roll through the parking lot. The female officer is slumped over and the passenger has a gun pointed at her. The car slowly leaves the parking lot. You and your friend follow the police car as it weaves down the highway between the shoulder and the slow lane.

You’re worried about the officer. You call 911. You have your concealed carry license. You’re armed. Your friend drives your truck alongside the patrol car, and shouts for them to stop. You and your friend pull the passenger from the patrol car. You hold the handcuffed suspect on the ground at gunpoint until police arrive. The officer is evacuated by helicopter. Four days after her attack, the officer was listed in stable condition but unable to speak after having four surgeries on her abdomen. The inmate was treated for a gunshot wound to the hand.
(Tag- No shots fired)

    My wife and I both carry every day and everywhere. I mentioned to her this morning as we walked into the gym for our morning working, “Oh, wow! I’m sure glad I’m not carrying my revolver.” Because the sign on the door banning guns showed a silhouette of what looked like a .44 mag revolver. Since we were both carrying semi-autos, I figured the sign wasn’t meant for us!

    Although no caliber is mentioned in Robs stories, more often than not the perp makes it out of the zone only to be later caught. Perhaps training is the needed alternative here as these assailants seem to be leaving the scene, or a larger caliber and training.

    To 75FXE. Correct you are. Yes, I do like the newest name you have recommend for the so called SMART Phone aka “Idiot Pud”. There are many holding them. I see this everywhere I travel. Everywhere! -Now I see some (not all) LEO’s sitting in their Patrol Cars, looking down, possibly staring endlessly into a Black Scribe Mirrors. Are they too using the” Idiot Puds” while on Patrol.? makes you wonder….. -This phenom is taking place in many Cities across America. Mostly evident in Sanctuary Cities.

    Person: “Are you armed at…”
    Me: “Yes. However that question ends, the answer is yes.”

    Unfortunately, being armed as you go about your daily life is becoming more and more of a necessity. Due to lax sentencing laws, moral decay, thugish behavior glamorized by entertainment and sociatal encouragement/acceptance of nonproductive lifestyles; some people have fewer norms to serve as a brake against antisocial behavior. Subsequently, they feel free to act on their criminal instincts – and not a cop in sight! I don’t want to have to shoot anyone again, but I’ll be damned if I will stand by while goons rampage against me, mine, a neighbor or some total stranger. All because taking is… Read more »

    To these libs self defense in being a vigilante(of course THEY wouldn’t give up THEIR government paid security). They want you to be a good victim and let the police make a report over YOUR dead body. Criminal have a right to due process, again victims are to accept their fate.

    The first thing that springs to mind is “Why is there a handcuffed occupant in the front passenger seat of a police car?”

    Great story. But wait., a 4th story please. “Are you armed at the Gym”, and is this Gym within a “Sanctuary City Limits?.
    5Th story. “Are you armed at the Grocery Store”, while standing in line, while other humans gaze downward, endlessly into their so called SMART Phone?
    -all of ones answers to story 4 and 5, are hereby deemed as being self evident.

    Being armed is a state of mind. Are you asking what weapon do you carry or may have.
