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

Self-Defense Gun Stories

U.S.A.– (Ammoland.com)- You didn't see this news covered by the mainstream media, but again this week, responsible gun owners defended themselves and the people they love. Self-defense instructor Tony Simon joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they well trained? (26-minute audio)

These victims saved lives because they had a gun..and good habits.

 

First story- Are you armed at work?

It’s about 5 in the evening when two men rush into your coin and jewelry shop. They’re wearing masks and shouting at you. They have guns in their hands and their guns are pointed at you. They tell you to open the cash register, and they move toward you.

You’re armed. You shoot at your attackers. They turn and run, but they also shoot you in the arm. Another customer walks into your shop and calls 911 for you. You’re 71 years old.

Second story- How armed are you after midnight?

You’re asleep. It is after midnight when you hear gunshots. Worse than that, you hear the impact as bullets hit your house. You get your rifle, look out the window, and find someone shooting at you and your house. You shoot back and the gunfire stops. Now, you call the police.

The police find your wounded attacker at your neighbors house. Your drunk attacker was taken to jail and held without bond. Both you and your attacker were using rifles. News reports are not clear if the male attacker and the female defender knew each other before the attack. It also isn’t clear how far away the attacker was when he was shooting at you.

Third story- Are you armed at work?

You’re behind the counter at your liquor store. It is after dark when another customer comes in. This customer tells you to give him the money in the cash register, and he points his gun at you.

You’re armed. You shoot your attacker several times until he drops his gun. Unfortunately, your attacker shoots you in the leg before he falls. You crawl out of the store where a police officer treats you. EMTs arrive and take you to the hospital. It takes a while to get the security videos to the police.

Fourth story- Do you have access to your defensive tools at night when you’re at home?

Your home was robbed a few days ago. You weren’t home then, but two young robbers beat up your 14 year old son. Tonight you hear someone breaking into the small house you have in your backyard. You get your gun and go outside to investigate. You see two strangers in your yard. They point a gun at you. You shoot them, and they run away. You put out the fire they started in the small house you have in your backyard, and then you call the police, the fire department, and EMTs.

Police arrest one of your attackers at the scene and arrest the other attacker when he went to the hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound. Your attackers were 14 years old.

i guess if someone shoots at me, i`m not going to worry about a line in the sand, or their age. kids kill others as easily as adults, perhaps easier. Being seriously injured or shot dead by bad people, it will not matter how old the shooter was.

Another self defense gun story: WASHINGTON – A deeply divided Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the family of a Mexican teen shot and killed by a U.S. Border Patrol agent cannot seek damages because of the border that was between them. The justices ruled 5-4 that Sergio Adrian Hernández Guereca, 15, lacked constitutional protection against the use of excessive force because he was in Mexico. Had he been in Texas with Border Patrol agent Jesus Mesa, his family would have had a claim. Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion and was joined by the court’s four other conservatives.

Reminds me of a time when we lived in the mountains of Northern California. We managed a youth camp and at the end of the summer season, we took a short vacation. Came home to find several acts of vandalism had been committed in our absence … nothing serious. But then we came upon a trail of matches that led about 20 feet to a propane tank. The gas line had been disconnected and was hanging on the ground at the end of the match trail. A neighbor had passed by and seen three 12-13 year old boys who ran… Read more »

I know they were young kids that did all that and got caught, but for some reason I just think they needed more than just jail, I don’t quite know what’s right in this situation, but absolutely something more than jail. For whatever the reason, those kids were about to take several lives had the family been home, or if only one, or a couple, it would have surely been death just the same, not to mention burning down a good portion of the people living in the area, but, jail alone is not enough. Maybe they need to lower… Read more »

Criminal behavior is learned early. Hopefully these two 14 yr old kids are not beyond being useful, law abiding, upright citizens in the future.

Never underestimate violence potential based on age.

@PMinFL – I’ve got no problem with kids “using a gun at that age,” as long as they use it responsibly. Adulthood is not achieved through passage of time, it is earned and learned through experience – which requires time.
