    I'd wait 'til I saw the whites of their eyes.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I'm also very surprised they didn't kill her and dump her body. She was lucky in that respect but she's going to relive that nightmare over and over. Poor woman.

    I've become much more aware of being safe when I'm at home. We live in a subdivision that is in the country on 2-3 acre lots. It's quiet and the neighbors look our for each other. But, people work or aren't home for whatever reason and if something did happen I doubt if I could expect someone to be there to help.

    I always make sure the doors are locked. I have a full view glass storm door that has a deadbolt. The dog likes to sit and look out so I know he'd bark if someone came up to the house. I also now keep the garage doors shut...never did that before.

    Our security system is set so that you hear a "ding" if a door or window opens. I've done what I can. I'd like to keep a gun downstairs within easy reach. I know it's best to have it on you but realistically, I probably wouldn't do that on a day to day basis.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Another sad story of how un-protected so many people still are.

    We both carry at home (and everywhere else that's legal).
    We have an extensive security system with "visitor announcement" features.
    Steel doors with reinforced frames and break-resist security film on all ground floor windows.
    Short of truck through a wall, we'll have plenty of warning, but the intruders will get NO warnings and just as much mercy.

    Shame, that. But true enough. PTSD.

    Neighbors should look out for each other... but, as you say, can't always be done... people have to work to support their McMansions (both parents out of the house), and the 3-7 wide screen tvs, and the two new cars, and the video games...and and and.

    Good that you're more security conscious... The dog is a plus.

    The day may come when you will change your mind... I'm sure the woman in the story wishes she had a gun on her at the time of the attack... And not in another room.

    It truly is a sad state of affairs... nowadays.

    Lish, you are right, you ARE better prepared than your husband. No doubt on that.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    They would not have gotten both feet through the threshold at my house.

    It is the neighbors that I am worried about where I live....
