Louisiana- -( Here is some news you won’t find in the mainstream media. Again this week, responsible gun owners defend themselves and the people they love.

Self-defense instructor Elizabeth Hautman joined the Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast to look at three new examples. Were these gun owners lucky, or were they trained and prepared?   What can we learn from their experience? Listen and find out. (19 minute podcast)

All three victims survived lethal attacks because they had a gun.

First story-  Are you armed when you’re walking downtown at night?

You’re walking back to your car. It is late at night. A man comes up to you and says, “Give me your wallet.” You almost don’t believe it. You’re about to ask him to say it again when you notice the gun in his hand. You’re being robbed. You start to back up, and the robber raises his gun. You put your wallet in your left hand. Then you reach for your handgun with your right hand. You have a concealed carry permit, and your armed. You shoot your attacker. He’s startled, and you take that moment to run away.

Then you call police.

Second Story-  Are you armed at home?

You’re in your room at your family’s home. It is 2am, and you hear yelling from the front door. A large group of men have broken into your home. They have guns pointed at everyone. You are still in the back hallway and you hear the robbers beating and threatening your family. You go back to your room. You grab your gun and move toward the front of the house. You start shooting as you round the corner. The robbers run.

Police report that eight men broke into your home.  The took two small safes as they ran.

Third story- Are you armed when you walk down the street?

It is early in the morning when you finally arrive home. You park your car on the street. You walk up to your front door when a young man steps up behind you and points a gun at you. He demands your wallet, your phone, and your keys. You have your Illinois concealed carry permit. You’re carrying. You drop the bag in your hands. You step to the side and then draw your own firearm. You shoot several times. Then you run.

The  police picked up your attacker not far from your front door. He was shot in the abdomen, and in both legs. You are shaken, but you’re not shot.
