5 men kick in the door armed with shotguns
Here's a real scenario of a home invasion, as it occurred. The couple had young children in the house, apparently no dog or mechanical or electronic early warning system, and no weapons in the house.
The household is one of Christian missionaries so there are some religious references.
Knowing that most of us here take our security seriously, and may even be armed at all times in the home, how do you think you would deal with such an occurrence?
This apparently happened sometime in June.
>>>Part one, from the wife's perspective
>>>Part two, from the husband's perspective
There's more to the story... and the aftermath of that night, but I'll leave it to you to decide if you want to read the blogs or not.
I'm told that home invasions are on the rise, I believe that. I have also heard that more than one gunman is becoming the norm. I believe that as well.
Now, how to best deal with it short of armored doors walls and windows, and a lifestyle bordering on paranoia, is something I'm still working out.
<Edit> Well, it's been moved here... It'll probably get read more here, and more responses. That's okay. But to me, it really was about home defense and security.
