Here in Texas, criminals don't even have to be in your house for you to to introduce.., say... 30-rounds of .223 from your AR-15; That is, if you had such a weapon.

Many, many years and 2 marriages ago I lived in Irvine, CA. I was on active duty in the USMC at the time and had just begun to start my weapons collecting.
My wife and I came home one night and found the door unlocked (but closed). I went in, did a truly shitty job of clearing the 2 story condo while my wife waited outside and we agreed that we must have forgot to lock the door.
My wife went upstairs toward the bedroom and I stayed down in the lower level (kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom and living room). After about 20 minutes I went up also.
As soon as I got to the top of the stairs I heard the door to the guest bathroom open, saw someone bolt for the front door and head out. He had hidden in the shower.
My wife called 911, I removed my Kimber 1911 with two extended magazines from the night stand safe and we waited all of 3 minutes for the first Irvine PD officer to arrive. Within 10 minutes the entire neighborhood was surrounded and the airship was overhead. Took Irvine PD less than 30 minutes to locate the person walking down Jeffrey Road carrying a pillowcase with a laptop computer and my wifes silver flatware set.
I had informed the first responder that I was armed, we took the necessary measures to make him feel safe and we discussed "defending your home".
He made it very clear to "shoot to kill, and dont stop until the intruder is not breathing" and if he should fall out the door or window, bring him back inside..."
Words to live by as far as Im concerned! My only regret was that I did not clear the house better. I SHOULD have found him, had my wife bring my pistol and shot him until I was out of ammo.
I'm sorry for your experience.

I have had my permit to carry for years, I have just recently started to carry again. I hope and pray I never have to pull it, or for that matter use it on another human being. BUt I am fully prepared to do what I have to do to defend my person, and my family, and my property.

To those people who have had to pull, and / or use there weapon, Its a tough thing to have to do. and you really do not get to think about it.

That woman in georgia did a commendable job protecting her family, and god willing, her and her kids will get through what they have just gone through.

I actually purchased a membership with Texas Law Shield. If I ever have to use my firearm to defend myself, my Family or my property, I am automatically represented by their team of attorneys against civil and criminal prosecution.

The police officer that taught my CHL class said if you are ever involved in a shooting "Don't tell the police anything.., I am not your friend.., I am here to collect evidence for the prosecution." Pretty scary stuff.
