I only own one ... a Remington Model 11 20 ga which my father gave me when I was nine. No shells are in the house.
My house was burglarized back in the 70's. My deer rifle was locked and loaded and I found it on couch, ready to shoot whoever walked in the door during the burglary; my 45 pistol was stolen and used to rape my neighbor across the street.
After that incident, I no longer keep ammunition in any house I've lived in, you burglarize my home you need to bring your own.

That's entirely illogical, Swingy. Keep a loaded weapon (or ten) and extra ammo for each in a handy safe if nothing else. With no ammo, the gun is useless to YOU, too, in case of emergency. A gun safe allows you to keep them around with no chance of the perps stealing them.

They would have found a locked safe and left. And if you walked in and they wanted you to open it, you'd say "It's my wife's safe. I don't know the combo." Right?

Yeah, and nailguns with nails can be murder...

Just the thought of what could happen were your wife and daughter to walk into that kind of situation obviously goes right over your head, eh?

I can follow your logic. I used to have a gun and one day I found myself in a situation where I thought I was going to have to use it to save a friend's ass. Fortunately I didn't have to use it, but it scared the crap out of me when I realized all of the ramifications of using it. I haven't had a gun since then other then a rifle with ammunition so old I'd probably be safer having it pointed at me then shooting it. I guess when they cut the police force to where you have to protect yourself I'll reconsider.

Uh, the approved quote is "... MINUTES away."
Recall the gal in Oklahoma who recently blew away a berserker breaking into her house? The one where the 911 dispatcher said "... do what you have to do..."?
It took the cops TWENTY-ONE MINUTES to respond!. To a home invasion in progress.
Pitiful.
And educational.

The courts have held that police have no responsibility to prevent crimes. It could be that that extends to responding to a crime in progress in a timely manner, but I'm guessing.
Their primary responsibility is capturing a perpetrator *after* a crime has been committed.
Preventing a crime appears to have been left up to us the citizens, but of course, with rare exceptions, we're not allowed to harm a criminal to do so.

Bill, I think it may have been a good thing, a freak chance, to have happen to her. It sure ripped her out of her mourning for her husband. It probably kick started her life again, too, weighing the value of everything left in her life. She'll likely be an even better mother as a result. (How's that for a positive spin on it?)

Bah! Killing people in self-defense is a mind-altering, but satisfying, life event.
Shooting team interviewer: "So, then, officer your statement is 'The suspect raced down the hallway with me in pursuit. He turned into a bedroom and from a lower drawer on the dresser pulled a large-caliber weapon and pointed it in my direction. I, in fear of my life, discharged my service weapon.' Is that a fair and accurate summary of the events you experienced?"
