    Either that, or move to a state where I can legally possess a loaded firearm.

    well,as described, you of course have no choice. your moral duty is abundantly clear. i do not think anybody could live with himself if he didn't respond. of course inform the police, but run over there. Ask for the Lord's help and guidance, and go to their aid.

    I've got a similar situation in that my brother's house is literally one street up from my house, and he and his family are also is defenseless. We're working on a firearm solution for him now, but until then I told him to call the police and then me.

    Frankly, law be damned, he's my brother. I'm 60 second flat out sprint away, the police aren't.

    My in-laws live in Maryland by choice, and think guns, including mine, should be banned.

    - If at all possible, the family member must have a plan of action to defend himself. I can't be a babysitter to an able-bodied, able-minded adult. Whether it's retreating to a safe, barricaded location and using weapons at hand, that member must take upon himself the primary responsibility of defending himself.

    - If I intend to help in person beyond dialing 911, I must be reasonably proficient in house clearing, otherwise I could wind up wounded or dead. I must know the layout of the house and have clearly labeled keys to all entry doors to that house.

    - I must be identified as the good guy to the cops. If I'm too busy hoofing it to the scene to place a call myself, the family member must describe me to the police, but it will only be helpful to a degree; if that person hasn't seen me that day, how does he know what I'm wearing to describe me in detail? A reflective wearable ID like The DSM Safety Banner might be a great idea here.

    - It would be a great idea to have a first aid kit with some good compression bandages and know how to use it, because the relative might be injured by the time you arrive. Have a go kit ready.

    Nah, there are -plenty- of Alaskan's who don't own guns, especially in Anchorage. That much said, I would feel pretty confident in saying that we probably have a higher ratio of gun owners to non gun owners than most states. If nothing else, there's probably enough guns every few houses to arm each neighborhood they are in :P

    As said earlier, no concealed here so permit wouldn't be an issue.
    Smart call here

    all of us sitting her arm chair quarterbacking it here is one thing. There are some good Ideas here, but to me the most real possibility is grabbing whatever combat fighting gun I have on hand (no pocket pistols) and going over... But if you care deeply about this person as I think you do I would get them trained and if possible off to help pay for training or the gun and teach them how to defend themselves... Make them see even that it might take you some time to respond and they are still on their own.

    Just a thought.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Absolutely valid point spec - and I'd agree that is the route to go.

    That much said, it also defeats the scenario. The best solution to this would be to avoid it, I agree, but in the absence of that as a solution...

    New scenario I thought about would like some help with

    Trust me I agree 100% spec I. That I wish she would be armed, however she does not feel it is necessary to own a firearm , she believed that her bat next to her bed is proficient. There is no real plan for her to call me but I already receive calls for other odd things that aren't life threatening so can imagine that this too could happen. I offer taking her to the range just to atleast get her feet wet haven't happened yet but will continue to try

    This. Did she call 911 or you first? So you respond with an open carry, putting yourself in the middle of the BGs and the PD. Calling the PD and advising them of what you're doing and they'll tell you to stay home and don't be armed. Will the dispatcher put out your description to the units in time, or completely confuse the issue about who you are and what you're doing there with a gun. All they are going to hear is "man with gun".

    I understand the concept, but disagree with the sentiment.
