    If you're not a gun owner....

    ....anything can become a weapon.

    19 year old (crybaby, from the looks of him in the back of the cruiser) gets caught on home invading spree.

    A family without weapons of self defense, at least had a plan... and they worked the plan... and they're okay...

    The kid didn't get caught at their house... but got caught wrestling with another victim... (she maybe didn't have a plan).

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Not the most complex plan "If they come in the front go out the back", but effective in this case.

    They come in the front you run out the back and hit the detonator on the claymore

    At least they had a plan... the subsequent female victim apparently had none... but she delayed him long enough until the police arrived (probably the result of the first family's 911 call).

    Fact is, there are only 3 "plans..."

    1. Be a victim
    2. Run, hide and barricade.
    3. Make them regret their victim selection process.


    None of them guarantee a survivable outcome... But the odds of surviving and prevailing increase with the complexity of the plan...

    I guess it's a good plan if you have no means to defend yourself. Although someone could have been outside of that window as well. I am definitely glad they are ok. But, I bet you this guy will get him a couple of dogs soon.
