Susan Gonzalez on Maury Povich Show Thursday

August 8, 2001 -- Susan Gonzalez and her husband were violently attacked during an invasion of their home.  The experience was naturally very frightening.  Fortunately for them, the couple had a gun and used it properly in self-defense, or it's safe to assume they'd be dead.  Read the reports for yourself:

And Maury Povich decided to do a graphic show about women who were violently attacked.  Said Mrs. Gonzalez about the recording of the show,

"I was asked not to make this a gun issue. There was four other women there that had suffered brutal attacks without a gun. But you will see that Maury asked if I had a gun now and of course I did not because I was in New York. I am with you on his show, and anywhere I can get free coverage for the 2nd Amendment I will."

If you don't normally stomach the likes of Maury Povich, Thursday's show (August 9th) may be of interest to you. You can go here to check your local listings:

Mrs. Gonzalez also has a personal message to you that includes a call to action:

"Most of us know that my type of story does not get heard very often by news media. They always show stories of how guns kill children and how dangerous guns are. And when they do show my side they always down play it. Well I feel that if we let the networks know what we want to see maybe they will change their views on guns and start helping with the rights of gunowners.

"What I am asking of each and everyone that reads this is to send a letter to the Maury Povich Show and let him know that we want more coverage on these types of issues. Not some of the stupid shows that they do now. I was not given the time to tell my story on the show because I was asked not to make this a gun issue. It is time we make it a gun issue and protect all of our rights to have the "Choice" to protect our own life! Please pass this to all on your email lists. I would like to see that Maury gets more letters on this issue then any other story he has aired. And then maybe they will get the point.

"The address is: The Maury Show 15 Penn Plaza New York, NY 10001 Story: "I Was Left For Dead...But I Survived!". If you will do this for the cause of our Second Amendment Rights when you send your letter would you please drop me an email to let me know that you have sent a letter so I can keep up with the amount of mail they get from this story at This way if they choose not to let the public know how many letters where received on this story then I can let the news media know. I will continue to fight for my rights and yours.


Susan Gonzalez

"Let us contemplate our forefathers, and posterity, and resolve to maintain the rights bequeathed to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. The necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that `if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom.' It is a very serious consideration...that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event." --Samuel Adams, speech in Boston, 1771
