Louisiana- ( You’re a small Laotian woman. You manage a laundromat about 15 miles west of Philadelphia. It is early in the morning and you are at work. A man walks into your laundromat with his gun drawn. You’ve been robbed at gunpoint before. This robber pushes you back toward the back and demands money. You don’t have any. Then the robber tells you to strip off your clothes. He pushes you into a back room. This time you fight.
Second Story- Are you armed at home? You and your husband are both at home this morning. You live in a well to do rural neighborhood about 16 miles east of Washington, DC. You turn around and a stranger is standing inside your home. You ask him who he is, and then tell him to leave. He doesn’t. You yell, and then your husband comes toward the front of the house. He pushed the intruder towards the front door. The intruder pushes back. They fight.
