Are you armed as you work behind the counter?

It is after 11 at night. You’re working at a convenience store in town. You look up to see a man standing at the counter. Instead of dropping some chips and some change on the counter, he sets down a handgun and tells you to hand over your cash. You step behind the register and open the cash drawer. You set the drawer on the counter and step aside. When the robber reaches for the cash, you reach down to grab your gun from behind the counter. You shoot him. He is out the door before you can shoot again.

You’re not hurt, but you are frightened. You call the police. They look at your security video and find your attacker outside.

Are you armed at home?

You’re sitting inside your house and about to prepare dinner. You’ve surveillance system beeps at you as it notices some movement outside. You look up at the video monitor to see three men with guns standing in your driveway. You get your gun and back away from the front door. The front door breaks in with a crash. You shoot at the first man standing in your home. All three intruders run away.

Do you have a gun nearby when you’re asleep in the afternoon?

Did you hear a scream? You sit up and wonder if you imagined it all. Your mom screams again and you jump into action. You grab your gun just before a stranger opens your bedroom door. The stranger has a gun in his hand. You shoot him, and the stranger runs away. You follow him, and turn toward your mom’s bedroom. A stranger has a gun to her head. You shoot her attacker. The attacker drops the gun, and you and your mom run to another room and call police.

You come out of your back room when the police arrive. They find both attackers nearby.

Are you armed when get out of your car after work?

It is early saturday morning. You’re done with work after working late. You stop at a friends house. Two men approach you as you step out of your car. They spray you with pepper spray and tell you to hand over your money. They hit you in the head with their guns. You cover your face and say sure, take it. You reach down for your pockets. You grab your gun and shoot the nearest attacker. Both men run away.

Now you stumble back toward your car and call police. The police arrest one of your attackers and the girlfriend of the man you shot. She planned the attack and put their bb gun into the trash to hide the evidence. One of your attackers died, and both of the survivors are charged with murder.
