ALR064 – Lessons from a Good Samaritan

When we make the decision to carry a firearm or to purchase a firearm for home defense, there are a certain set of scenarios that we all envision and prepare for. How many of us prepare to intervene in a violent assault on a stranger? How many of us prepare for that scenario when our loved ones are with us? Aaron Kreag decided to save a woman who was being violently assaulted in 2014 but nothing prepared him for what he faced — a non-compliant perpetrator, aggressive and poorly trained cops, constant trial delays, invasive media, potential employers who wanted nothing to do with him, and a victim who ultimately turned on him in court. If you carry a gun, you need to hear this interview. Plus tips from Sgt. Bill, Aaron Israel and Mia Anstine.
