At Night and During the Day, at Home and in Public, More Self Defense Gun Stories

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- You probably didn’t see this news covered by the mainstream media, but again last week, responsible gun owners defended themselves and the people they love. Self-defense instructor Lauren Hartnett joins the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at four new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or did they have a plan? (23-minute audio)

First story- Are you armed at home during the day? 

It is a little after lunchtime on a weekday. You hear banging at your front door. You recognize a voice outside so you don’t unlock the door. You present your firearm and retreat toward the back of your house. You call 911 and say you have an attacker beating on your front door. Police arrive and your attacker runs to the back of the house before the police arrest him.

Your attacker was beating against your front door with a two inch square metal pipe. You have a restraining order against your attacker, so the police took him to jail. The police did not list your name in their public report, but they did mention your restraint in not shooting your attacker.

Tag- no shots fired

Second Story- Are you armed as you drive?

You are driving down the street. It is three in the morning when two men step out in front of your car. You stop the car and roll down the window. One of the men hits you in the face. He reaches for his waistband.

You are a firearms owner. You have your Ohio license to carry a concealed handgun. You’re armed tonight. You present your firearm and shoot your attacker. Both men run away. You call 911. Police arrive and arrest your attacker nearby. They also arrest the second attacker who was slightly wounded. EMS takes your attacker to the hospital where he died. You give a statement to the police. You’re taken into custody, but not charged with a crime.

Third story- Are you armed when you travel?

You’re asleep in your hotel room. You wake up when you hear noises outside. Your room is up on the second floor, so the sound shouldn’t be from a driver parking his car. A moment later, you hear glass breaking. You grab your gun from the nightstand. You shoot your intruder as he comes through the broken hotel room window. Your intruder runs away. You call 911. It is three in the morning.

When they arrive, you give a brief statement to the police. The hotel security video shows a man and a woman trying to break into your room. It also shows them walking around the property earlier in the day. Police post the intruder’s pictures with the local news media.

Fourth story- Are you armed at work?

It is about 9:30 in the evening and you’re cleaning up your small market. You carry another load of trash to the dumpster beside your building. A homeless man shouts at you and charges you. You back up and he keeps coming closer. You’re armed. You present your firearm and shoot your attacker. You retreat across the parking lot. The news story isn’t clear if you call the police from the parking lot or from back inside your store.

Police arrive and you give them a statement. EMS transports your attacker to the hospital. Investigators review security video of the attack, but the news report isn’t clear if the video is yours or from another store.

In regards to story number two:

Oklahoma House Passes Bill Protecting Drivers Who Hit Protesters (insider.com)

To Hell with people who threaten people in their cars. As to the “Black” State Rep, Monroe Nichols: Tell your son to not be a thug and he should be alright. If he still chooses to be a thug and do thuggish things then he can burn in Hell with his buddies.

Not just OK, a friend sent this to me about TX. In Texas, State Representative Terry Meza (D-Irving) has introduced HB196. Her bill would repeal the state’s “Castle Doctrine.” This doctrine allows a homeowner to use deadly force against an armed intruder who breaks into his home. Now listen to what she has to say… “I’m not saying that stealing is okay,” Meza explained. “All I’m saying is that it doesn’t warrant a death penalty. Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate. They just want to get their loot and get away.… Read more »

The thing you mentioned is the polar opposite of what I posted.

RoyD,

I was thinking more of your comment: “Tell your son to not be a thug and he should be alright. If he still chooses to be a thug and do thuggish things then he can burn in Hell with his buddies.” She wants to protect the thugs because they need your stuff more than you do and the guns they use are just props.

“She wants to protect the thugs because they need your stuff more”
Her words make this clear. Whenever someone is more worried about the fate of a home invader than they are about the home owner… well, it becomes pretty clear who’s side they’re on! People quite seldom cheer for their opponents. In fact, it’s as rare as hen’s teeth. For those who have no knowlege of chickens… hens have beaks, not teeth! 🙂

Describing the rationale behind her bill on Twitter, Meza said she filed it because “the castle doctrine as it currently exists emboldens people to take justice into their own hands.”“While theft is obviously wrong, we have laws to address that,” she wrote. “I don’t believe that stealing someone’s lawn ornament should be an offense punishable by death.”“Rep. Meza believes in the right of a homeowner to defend themselves in their own home from an intruder, with deadly force if necessary,” Leibowitz told the AP. “The intent of the bill is to encourage Texas gun owners to be defenders not aggressors.”… Read more »

“Rep. Meza believes in the right of a homeowner to defend themselves in their own home from an intruder, with deadly force if necessary,” Maybe… but not until AFTER the homeowner has been killed. THEN she might condescend to admit that it’s a bit too late…. but she’ll still get her way because the one opposing her will will be dead! She’ll just cover that up by going to the dead homeowners funeral and crying crocodile tears for a bit, like any other organized gangster. It’s the Hegelian Dialectic. First; decide what you want to do. Second; create a problem.… Read more »

She’s definitely a nut, like I said. I’m just not sure she said what Dave wrote. It might be some good satire.

There is enough wrong with her bill to attack it based on its face.

What in the world would lead you to think that a “fact check” by Reuters News Service is any more accurate than one from CNN, Snopes, or the demanding moms???/

“I’m not sure she actually said those things”

Read that very carefully.

– OK, so I read the Reuters “fact check”. I have to give them an “F” for this fact check. They claim she is not trying to repeal Castle Doctrine, just amend it. Thing is her amendment changes the law to not be Castle Doctrine – so is a defacto repeal. If the law does not provide for forcible protection of one’s domicile, it is not “Castle Doctrine” no matter what Meza and Reuters want to call it.
Thus the claims are TRUE and Reuters is FALSE.

Finnky, I’m not defending Reuters or Meza. I was commenting on what was written yesterday in this thread. It’s seems as though there is a reasonable probability that Meza did not say: “Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate. They just want to get their loot and get away. When the resident tries to resist is when people get hurt. If only one side is armed fewer people will be killed. … the homeowner’s obligation is to flee the home at the first sign of intrusion. If fleeing is not possible, he… Read more »

Finnky,

Do you think there is a reasonable probability that John Semmens wrote all of those things as parody/satire in the GOP Briefing Room to mock Meza and her bill?

He even labeled it as comingling reality with satire. It was funny.

@Dave – Thanks for the heads up. Will be writing my state rep about this. It is tough to keep up with life, much less political stupidity at local, state and federal levels. Feel free to post info on any bills at any level that readers may want to address. None of us can afford to be caught napping. My city elections are coming up. Looking at mayoral candidates I see that all of them are smart enough to not address anything contentious. Planning to reach out to ask them how they would react if 2A sanctuary comes up. Response… Read more »
