Burglar Undeterred By Alarm But Rationally Scared Of Guns

posted on August 11, 2015

A 79-year-old man in Bremerton, Wash., was able to successfully deploy a handgun and prevent harm to his 80-year-old wife and himself when a very determined burglar entered their home at 3:30 a.m. Five shots were fired at the fleeing burglar. 

The bad news is that the burglar was not dissuaded from entering the home by an alarm system. The alarm response wasn’t sufficiently rapid to allow the criminal to be captured.

The crucial upshot is this: While most Americans benefit from the protection of the world’s best cops, those dedicated LE men and women cannot be everywhere. For meaningful, timely personal defense, you are on your own whether you admit it to yourself or not.
