My advice is arm yourself! My house was robbed a few years back and my wife and I felt very violated.She had trouble sleeping for awhile as did I. I went on constant alert to everything. I suddenly became aware of the new faces walking in the neighborhood. I'd catch myself saying "How many times did that same car pass the house?" "Why is that car just sitting there?" "Who's this on the caller I.D. that I don't recognize?" Are they calling to see if we are home?
That got old real quick needless to say so I decided to practice my constitutional right and get my LTCF (licence to carry a firearm). I can assure you, its a great thing to know that if some piece of sh*t thinks they are going to try and make victims out of you and your loved ones, the ability to adequately defend yourself is better than hoping for the best. Check out your local laws and apply for your permit to carry.
