    Good: If you don't have a gun... get to the kitchen?

    A while back there was the perp that was hit with a frying pan... then there was the guy near the back door, in the kitchen, who hit a guy with a shovel... now this lady gets into a struggle with a home invader in the kitchen... and she gets a knife... he runs...

    Lots of deadly weapons in the kitchen.. and it's not and ideal defensive location.. .but if it's all you got.. use what you got...

    I carry in the house unless I'm in PJs, but the Mr. doesn't. Our knife block is on our kitchen counter so that it can be reached from the kitchen or the living room. The trick is getting the guys to wash the knives after they use them so that they're in the block and not the sink

    A good guard dog could buy you some time to get to a weapon.

    Hey, a dirty knife might give the BG a nasty infection to go along with the wound. Especially if it was used on chicken.

    And knowing how our judicial system works, you'd probably get sued by the BG and he'd win and take your house. It is totally ridiculous that a BG, getting hurt in the commission of a crime, can sue and win. But it has happened several times.

    I love the "mayhem" commercials...

    But then, my dogs give me a warning when I'm home... I don't expect them to stop thieves, just to warn me when the BGs are coming... I'll take care of the rest.

    If I'm not home... my stuff is replaceable... But harm one of my dogs, and I'll do my best to make Liam Neeson in Taken look like an amateur. (may not succeed at that , but I'd sure make an effort, and you don't want me to get lucky).

    Can of wasp & hornet spray looks harmless, but it can spray about 15+feet and really hose a BG.
    If you hit them in the eyes, blinds them...have to go to the ER for antidote.... A good 12ga works best.

    The problem is that when the BG is in the kitchen he has the same access to all the nice potential weapons you do.

    I know someone who was raped at knife point with her own kitchen knife.
