At Home, on the Street, by Day, and by Night – More Self Defense Gun Stories

At Home, on the Street, by Day, and by Night- More Self Defense Gun Stories

U.S.A.– ( 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 Jeff Street joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they well trained? (21-minute audio)

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

First story-  Are you armed as you leave for work?

It is cold and dark outside, but you’re going to work. You start your car from inside your home. A few minutes later, you walk outside and open the car door. A car drives down your driveway and blocks you in. Two men get out wearing masks, and one of them has a gun pointed at you. They tell you to give them your keys. You run back toward your house, and they shoot you. You fall to the ground.

You have your concealed carry permit. You’re armed. You present your firearm from under your coat and shoot your attackers. They run away. You limp back into the house and call 911. EMTs take you to the hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening leg wound. You also give the police a description of your attackers and their car.

All three of your attackers are arrested after a short car chase.

Second Story-  Is your firearm nearby during the middle of the night?

You hear someone beating on your house. A moment later you hear your front door being smashed in. It is just before midnight. You grab your gun, walk out of your bedroom and stay at the top of your stairs. A stranger is coming up the stairs and the stranger has a handgun pointed at you.

You shoot the armed intruder several times. He drops his gun, and you shout for help. Your roommates call the police.

Weeks later, the district attorney says you had every right to shoot your attacker.

Third story- Are you armed when you’re driving to the bank?

Charlotte, NC- five teens try to rob woman at night at atm

You drive up to the ATM after midnight. A second later five men are around your car and they try all the doors. One of them is banging on your drivers side window and shouting for you to get out of your car. You’re a woman alone against five men, but you’re armed. You put your hand on your gun, roll down your window, and shoot your nearest attacker.

The men run. You drive away and call the police. The police arrest your wounded attack a block away.

Our defender had her firearm, and a concealed carry permit.

Fourth story- Are you armed when you stop to get gasoline?

Carjacking witness

You’re walking into a convenience store in broad daylight on friday afternoon. Three men pull up in an SUV and point a gun at a man pumping gas. The robber also points his gun at you..and shoots at you.

You’re armed. You move, present your gun, and fire back. Your attacker falls and you stop shooting. The attacker’s accomplices jump back in their car and drive away. You walk into the convenience store and call the police.

EMTs take your attacker to the hospital with a life threatening head wound.

I’m armed in all those situations. So is my wife.

Deplorable Bill

Yup, the firearm is like the American express card —- Don’t leave home without it (or them).

Arm up, carry on.

The problem with More Self Defense Gun Stories is that the reader often does not know the jurisdiction. If the reader presumes that the jurisdiction in his state, then there are fifty different analysis for each incident.


Wonder why it took #2 DA so long to make a decision.


@LaD – They are busy legal professionals and will always cover their asses. Two weeks is increasingly fast fore any legal resolution, no matter how clear cut. Article did not say shooter was arrested, so I’m assuming they did not spend those two weeks in jail. Sounds as though they’ve gotten off light so far, in practical rather than moral terms. I expect there will be a civil suit from family of the “poor innocent” deceased. That aspect may well have played into time taken by the DA. Evidence gathered in their investigation, and their determinations, will factor into civil… Read more »

@Finnky, Not in Texas. If the shooting is justified, then civil suit is precluded.


Same in a few other States.


Yes but THEY will try to undermine such laws if THEY can.


Same in Oklahoma…

We’re gonna see an increase in DGU’s if only because antigun, freedom-hating scumbag politicians across the nation are:
1) Releasing violent felons in large numbers, including murderers, MS13 animals, terrorists, and even CHILD MOLESTERS (Thanks, Gavin Newscum!!)
2) Ordering police to pull back to their station houses, stop all enforcement activity except for violent in-progress major crimes, and
3) Criminals are going to take advantage of the situation, because, they’re criminals.

…And just like that, Roof Koreans became a thing again.

Will Flatt

YES, MANY SHOTS were fired. Local gangbangers tried to engage a firefight with the Koreans and they were forced to break off. High ground (roof) always wins!

Will Flatt

Check out the idiots posting on the JPFO article. Bashing JPFO’s web content and not denying they’re OK with nazis & the holocaust. Aholes like Hemmor- RoyD. Looks like we have another LOSER for THE LIST!


So, you go looking, dare I say “begging” for someone to bolster your posts on another thread. That is just sad, real sad. But hey, you be you. Your turn.

Will Flatt

@Hemmor RoyD – I’m not begging anyone. Will is someone whose conversations I’ve appreciated and with whom I’ve shared a chuckle or two, and figured he’d love to laugh at your sorry azz.


Ok, if you say so.


@WF New York is claiming a 20% drop in crime. Of course they are failing to mention. The police have been ordered to stand down on any crime. Not considered “Violent”. Just like the 900 criminals they released this week. Who were considered. NON Violent. Keep Your Powder Dry…and Be Prepared To Use IT.


Couldn’t give a rats ass about what color or ethnic background criminals have. Criminals did the Crime. Now face the consequences. Good, Bad or Otherwise. If a criminal who has been released because of this crap. Commits a crime. The Politician or Bureaucrat who facilitated that release. Should serve the same penalty as the criminal. Up and including the President. Who I support on many levels.

Will Flatt

The players’ names may change, but it’s still the same game.


Pretty dangerous to discharge a weapon where people are passing gas. The State would look down on that spark hazard.


Copper and lead typically don’t facilitate sparking.


Only in the movies or on tv.
