About a week ago in Indianapolis, a man was arriving home around 9:00 p.m. after running a few errands when he was jumped by two armed attackers, right on his front stoop. The two suspects forced the man through the door, pistol-whipped him, shot him in the leg and demanded cash.
While this was happening, the man’s wife was running to his aid. The attackers, wearing gray clothing and masks on their faces, demanded money from her, too. The woman then ran off toward the kitchen and grabbed a handgun instead. By firing one shot, she scared off both of the attackers and quite possibly saved her husband’s life.
There were two young children inside the home during this incident who were not harmed. The man was hospitalized for his gunshot wound but is stable and expected to recover.
All things considered, besides the fact that the two perpetrators are still on the loose, this is a fairly good outcome. As John Boch says, peace of mind is an armed spouse.
Stories like this powerfully contradict the mainstream media’s narratives – which is why you won’t see them broadcast or distributed by those networks. We do our best to report on defensive gun uses as often as possible, and we archive them all publicly here.
