Here are four defensive gun use cases. The last one from March 2nd in Memphis, Tennessee is particularly dramatic as it involves a permit holder defending himself and a woman he was with against three attackers. The picture above is from the Kentucky case where a woman shot her stalker in his neck.
Louisville, Kentucky (March 8, 2016)
A Kentucky woman heroically turned the tables on the man who was trying to rob her at knifepoint by shooting him in the neck and buttocks with her own gun..
The unidentified woman was being stalked by John Ganobick on the night of January 26 when he followed her into a shopping mall elevator to the parking lot.
Exiting the elevator with her, he gave chase when she ran to her car and tried to beat her – leaving his victim fearing she would be raped. . . .
Houston, Texas (March 7, 2016)
Authorities are calling a shooting at an upscale auto shop a case of self-defense. Police believe that the suspect, who was killed, may not have meant to come to the business in the first place.
The man was not a customer but entered the shop looking for someone. He was reportedly very angry and started making threats.
Investigators say that the owner, who has a conceal carry license, feared for his safety. The owner pulled and fired at the man. . . .
Selma, Alabama (March 8, 2016)
Lt. Sam Miller says a masked man with a gun walked up to a woman at an ATM at 10 o’clock Monday night and demanded money. He says the woman’s grandson saw what was happening and pulled out a gun of his own.
He says the two men exchanged gunfire and the suspect was shot and ran off. . . .
Memphis, Tennessee (March 2, 2016)
The suspects fired shots into the car hitting the male victim in the side.
Police say he was able to return fire hitting the 16-year-old suspect in the chest. . . .
Police say the victim is expected to recover.
Police are still looking for the two other suspects. . . .
Tennessee allows people to legally carry their guns with them in their car without a permit, so while the man was legally having his gun with him, he might not have had a permit.
