Crazy Intruders and Violent Robbers – More Self Defense Gun Stories

Armed robbers stopped by homeowner

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 Andee Reardon O'brion joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they well trained? (19-minute audio)

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

First Story- Do you have a gun nearby at night?

It is before 6 in the morning when you hear glass break in the front of your house. You are a single mom and the first thing you do is check on your kids. Once you see that they aren’t hurt, you grab your gun and call the police. A stranger climbs through your broken front window. You shout for him to get out. He comes toward you, and you shoot him. Now he runs away. You check on your kids until the police get there.

The police arrest your intruder and take him to the hospital with a non-life threatening wound on his arm. Your attacker said dinosaurs were chasing him and he needed a place to hide.

Second Story- Are you armed at home 

Two men ring your bell on a Saturday morning. You expect your landscapers to be working outside, so you open the door. Two men wearing masks and gloves say they are the police. Once they are inside they pull guns from their pockets and attack you. Your wife hides your children upstairs. You fight off one of the men, then you run and grab your gun. You shoot one of your attackers. Now, the second attacker runs away. Police arrest him a few blocks away.

The attack is recorded by your security system. The two men brought zip ties and a blowtorch in a bag with them. They thought you had money hidden in the basement of your home. Your wife and your 11 and 14 year old daughters are unhurt. Your attacker is charged with murder for the death of his accomplice during the commission of a felony. They attacked you because they thought you’d be home due to the governor’s stay-at-home orders during the epidemic.

Third Story- Are you armed at home?

It is midnight and you and your wife turn off the TV and head to bed. That is when you hear someone downstairs. You grab your shotgun and go see what is happening. There is a light on in the kitchen. You see a stranger and shout for him to get out of your house. He moves toward you. You put one shot into the floor, but the man keeps coming. Now you shoot him in the legs and he stops. Your wife calls the police.

Police arrest your intruder and take him to the hospital. The intruder said he was looking for a friend and must have been in the wrong house.

Forth Story- Are you armed in as you walk near your home?

You watched a man climb over a barb wire fence and run into a nearby condominium complex. There is a police helicopter overhead. You walk forward and see the fugitive enter an alleyway. Now, the fugitive draws a knife and runs at you. You shout for him to stop, but he keeps coming. You have your Nevada license to carry a firearm in public. You’re armed. You draw your firearm and shoot your attacker when he comes near you. Your attacker stops. You run to get first aid and to call the police.

Later, the police told you that the man had been acting strangely and they had been chasing him for miles.

If the statement ‘the sky is blue’ somehow became connected with power and control, the college edumacated legal types would argue until the end of time about how blue, if indeed blue and not azure. Legislation would have to be passed to regulate who could make such a statement. They would hand down penalties to those they deem unequipped to make such claims. When, all the while, the sky would remain… blue.

Moral of the story is ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings and ALWAYS be armed. There is a LOT to be said for having a firearm on your hip 24/7/365. These situations could have easily gone sideways. I can’t see putting a warning shot into the floor of my own home. When I served in the Army, a warning shot was placed either center mass or between the eyes, followed shortly after by a loud “halt.” That fence and gate outside and those doors and windows are not there to protect my family from the bad guys, they are there… Read more »

DB, yessir!
I’m new on here (a couple months) and this is the first I’d seen anyone comment on these stories. I was going to leave a comment today to let ammoland know I like reading them, in case they might be getting the impression no-one was reading them. I look forward to Armed Citizen in my NRA rag, too. True stories with happy endings.

Hi, Will. I’ve read folks here with similar convictions as mine that are much sharper, much more articulate and better equipped with citations than me so, at least for now, I’m leaving the buckled-in missions to them. I’m probably going to be the guy that occasionally swoops in with levity or (more likely) something smart-assed to add 😉
