Responsible gun owners defended themselves, but you didn't hear about it in the news. Instructor David Cole joins host Rob Morse to talk about three new examples.

First Story- Do you have a gun nearby at night? You wake up at 1:30 in the morning to the sound of glass breaking. You see an intruder in your home.
Second Story-  Are you armed at home after dark? You’re 83 years old. You get up around midnight to take your medication. You hear a crashing sound from your basement.
Third story- Are you armed at work late at night? You work in a convenience store. It is 2AM when a customer walks in..only this customer points a gun at you.

What would you do in these situations? Text and podcast available at the link. (17 minutes)

Gun control supporters were out in force Tuesday morning in Olympia as a new bill for enhanced background checks on guns like AR-15s got a hearing in the Senate Ways and Means Committee. An earlier version of this bill for enhanced background checks for assault weapons would have raised the age to buy an assault weapon to 21 and required buyers go through state background checks in addition to the federal checks they already do. That bill [SB 5444] stalled, but after the Florida school shooting, Governor Inslee called for lawmakers to revive it.

Wait a minute! I thought guns were only reserved for nut jobs who like to shoot innocent people?! You mean to tell me that you can also use them for hunting, self-defense or to diffuse a situation? Yes. That’s exactly what guns are truly used for, and one suburban Chicago man proved it on Monday. Oswego, Ill. resident Dave Thomas witnessed a person with a knife attack another person during a heated exchange, so Thomas did what he thought was right and successfully attempted to break up the altercation because it was right outside his door at the apartment complex he lives in.

Responding to a question about gun rights in a tele-town hall on Monday night, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) expressed that his primary concern about the Second Amendment is a lack of understanding about its meaning. “The most important thing is to help the general public understand the purpose of the Second Amendment,” Brooks told his constituents over the phone. “The purpose of the Second Amendment is not to stop some criminal who is coming into your house, although that’s an excellent benefit. The purpose of the Second Amendment is not to enable you to go hunting, although that is an excellent benefit.”

Detroit Police Chief James Craig has said he supports "some teachers" being armed while in the classroom.

Craig made the comments Friday during an interview with WWJ 950 AM's Greg Bowman.

He said mass-shooting incidents take place over a period of four to six minutes, and that it can take up to eight minutes, on average, for police to respond.

"By that time, the unfortunate tragedies are there, the carnage has happened, so this is about the business of mitigating a threat," Craig said. "Clearly, I would never suggest that every teacher should have a gun in the classroom.

"But it needs to be a vetting process, there needs to be a lot of rigor associated with it."

My wife knew something was amiss when the car blocked our driveway. She was outside our house, playing with our kids on our trampoline, when a car drove slowly down our rural Tennessee street. As it reached our house, it pulled partially in the driveway, and stopped. A man got out and walked up to my wife and kids. Strangely enough, at his hip was an empty gun holster. She’d never seen him before. She had no idea who he was. He demanded to see me.
