You’re trying to sell your laptop and your apple watch. You find a buyer online. The buyer says he’ll send his girlfriend to meet you so you won’t be worried about a young woman having to meet with an adult man. You arrive at the meeting place and see a woman fitting the buyer’s description. You wave at each other and she climbs into your car. You ask her if she wants to see the laptop and the watch. She says yes and says she has the money. Instead of handing you cash, the buyer pulls a gun out of her purse and points the gun at you.
You have your Wisconsin concealed carry permit. You’re armed. You push the robber’s gun away and present your own gun. The robber opens the car door and runs. You open your car door and the robber shoots at you. She misses, but you shoot back and hit your attacker.
You call police. Your attacker got her gun from her boyfriend. The boyfriend is charged with first degree murder for the death of his girlfriend in the commission of a felony.
You’re a receptionist at a doctor’s office. It is mid afternoon when you look up to see three men with hoodies over their faces and guns in their hands. The men demand cash from you and from the patients in the waiting room.
You have your Texas license to carry a concealed handgun. You’re armed. You wait until your attackers looking away. That is when you draw your gun and shoot the attacker closest to you. All three men run away. You call police. The police find one attacker at a local hospital seeking treatment for a gunshot wound.
It is 9:30 at night. You’re home alone. You hear a crashing sound from the front of your home. That doesn’t sound right. You go investigate and find a stranger standing in your home. He threatens you with a knife and demands your wallet. You say your wallet is over here, and you grab your gun. Your attacker cuts your neck, and you shoot him several times. You run out of the house and call the police.
You’re serving customers in your corner store. A customer walks in wearing a ski mask. This customer also has a gun in his hand. He demands money and points his gun at one of your employees standing behind the cash register. You’re armed. You draw your gun and shoot your attacker. Now your attacker runs from the store.
Neither you nor your two other employees are injured. You call police. They find your attacker nearby. You also show your surveillance video to the police.
