This is a discussion on PBS website within the Carry & Defensive Scenarios forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm sure if this is in the wrong place, it will be moved. Kind of an interesting website considering the source. Gun Stories | Home...

    I am moving this to Carry and Defensive Scenarios

    We can post items were guns save lives and beat the anti-gunners at their own game.

    right now only 2 of 8 are anti-gun. That is very surprising.

    I don't see the connection to NPR.

    I'm confused...where is the connection to NPR?

    Edit:

    Oh wow... :(
    I read just one story chosen at random and it is harrowing.

    A True Story About Home Invasion: Would You Be Ready?

    by Susan M. Gonzalez

    My husband occasionally hunted and had guns in our home. I was scared of guns because I had never been taught much about them. Through the years, anytime that my husband was going to be gone overnight he would pull out a handgun and show me what to do in case I needed it for protection. I hoped that he would just hurry up and put it away, I WAS NEVER GOING TO NEED IT...

    I wish we would see stories like this one in the mainstream media ...
    it is not going to happen soon

    NPR: Audio Postcard | Grouse Hunting

    I still haven't figured out the connection between NPR and this 'Gun Stories' site but at NPR there is a story in regard to hunting that is against the grain for their listeners.

    Audio Postcard: Grouse Hunting

    All Things Considered, November 27, 2004 · Alaskan writer Doug Fine decided it was time he learned how to hunt his own meat. He sends us an audio postcard of his first endeavor: hunting for grouse.

    My bad. It's a PBS website, not NPR. I pulled it off another website. I'll change the heading in my initial post.
