And thank you for helping to make the point that the one in five home invasion statement is ridiculous. I am nearly 80 and I have never suffered a home invasion. No one in my family and none of my friends have. I don't even know anyone who has suffered a home invasion.
You really need to get out more. In St. Marys alone there have been a series of home break ins. The problem is you will never read about them unless someone is caught and rarely does that happen.

I realize the 1 in 5 ratio to some (especially the math challenged individuals) sounds excessive. If you say 20% of residencies will have some sort of home invasion during their lifetime that sounds a little more believable.

Now take a look at the Great Democratic Ghetto Society in our Cities. 20%? Your lucky they only take your Sh*t and let you live.

I do realize that we have had a rash of home break ins in St. Marys. There are approximately 5000 households in St. Marys. I do not know how many individual residences but lets just guess 4000. 1 in 5 (20%) would be 800 home invasions. Really?

Problem solvers you are not. Go back and proof read the posts and show us where it was claimed St. Marys had a 1-5 breakin rate. Waiting....
Now call the police department and have them verify your zero % claim. Waiting...

I stated that neither I, my family, or my friends have ever experienced a home invasion. Although this is true, the police dept. cannot verify it.

You suggested that I look around St. Marys. I showed you that a one in five home invasion rate in St. Marys is unlikely.

Of course I know that there are some neighborhoods in the country where a one in five home invasion rate is probably conservative. This is one very big reason why I don't choose to live in these neighborhoods.

None of this is an argument against adequately defending your home. If you keep a loaded weapon SAFELY within reach of your bed and if you never have to use it, great. No one is harmed and you may sleep easier. If you do have to use it, I'm sure that it will be to prevent a greater harm.

If you feel safe and secure in your home and, for whatever reason, do not choose to keep a home protection weapon, that's fine too.

I just don't think that any questionable statistics should be used to attempt to scare anyone into gun ownership.

Anon, don't know about the 1 in 5 ration but I have lived at the same address in St Marys for the past 35 years. My house has been broken in to twice in the last 15 years. My neighbors house has been broken into 3 times and his car once in the past year. I know that there have been at least 8 other break ins in my neighborhood in the last year.

Know why you haven't heard about them? Ask the police department!

How about if it's your son or grandson? You're gonna just murder them right there in the kitchen even though they don't know what their doing. You'd be better off not having the damn guns around where they could get to them in the first place. It's tough committing mass murder on a grand scale with a kitchen knife or a screwdriver. Not too tough with an assault rifle daddy just had to have to prove his manliness.

Can we agree that a "home invasion" by definition, requires that a least one authorized resident of the home be physiclly present in the home when the invaders enter? Can we futher agree that if no one is home, it's a burglary?

Burglary is the act of breaking and entering a dwelling at night to commit a felony (as theft); broadly : the entering of a building with the intent to commit a crime

On 15 August 1943, an invasion force of 34,426 Allied troops landed on Kiska.

No one was home.

So many K-rations were consumed. The men had a choise of two, one version used pemmican biscuits, a peanut bar, raisins, and bouillon paste; the other used pemmican biscuits, a small D ration bar, canned processed meat, and lemon beverage powder.
