They are criminals because they are lazy. Lazy doesn't always equal stupid.
I didn't say they were stupid, just not that smart. That's why the prisons are full.

Most B&Es take place when no one is home.

Sounds to me that you are not that smart. Take the house with no gun. Bring your own and you have total control. Just because you think they are not smart does not mean they don't think ahead moron!

If criminals thought ahead, they wouldn't be criminals.

As I stated earlier, having a gun in the home doesn't equate to properly using it in such a situation. There are very few on here who actually could. The biggest talkers would be the first to hide under the covers and send their wife or kids to go check on things.

If they commit the offense when no one is home, doesn't that mean they thought ahead?

More people are home because they lost their jobs or had their hours cut.

Thinking just past your nose isn't the same as thinking of the ultimate consequences of your actions.

Does that REALLY have to be spelled out?

Agreed, but they are still a tiny percentage of total B&Es.

Most thefts are for drug money. Sooner or later the perp is gonna sell his gun for more drug money. And a true thief won't take a gun with him unless it's an extraordinary situation. He will certainly steal one if he's got a buyer or thinks he will. But the true thief will very rarely use one on the job, and won't get hooked on drugs.

And how do you establish that "hot burglaries" are deterred by the risk of being shot?
There are many risks associated with entering a home when there are people inside. Getting shot is only one. There is also the risk of being seen and identified, or simply being interrupted before the objective (theft) can be carried out.\
There are many good reasons (from a thief's point of view) to avoid entering homes with people in them--armed or not.
you are one stupid woman.

humans climb obstacles everyday to achieve something.

confronting the obstacle of a door that is not yours; and knowing it is a very good possibility if you open that door your head is blown off, stops more crime than anything else.

Good reason not to break into houses when people are home.

You are dealing with a person who thinks that an insurrection is impossible in the US, but denies the obvious fact that 12 years later the Taliban are not defeated.
I don't think insurrection is impossible.

Just extremely unlikely. The conditions aren't here. And all you folks who seem to think insurrection will just happen, and you can just show up waving your weapon in victory are incredibly naive.

And frankly, in good position to be fleeced by folks who make their money selling weapons.

Most instructors don't recommend that you clear out a house by yourself when there are intruders. You are recommended to gather all residents in one room and call 911, that way you are in a defensive position which is tactically superior.
Precisely, that's not what all the wannabe tough guys are stating.

Still spouting the little Shrubs lies and mixing it in with cold war rhetoric.

The insurrection, quite plainly, has already begun. The people that sent white powder and alleged death threats to Journal News employees, and hacked into their computers, have commmitted multiple felonies that would lead to decades in the federal pen.
And they won the political battle, the data is now off limits in NY.
I don't think people will wave around weapons, that isn't how guerilla warfare works. The "partisan sniper" is what will happen.
What is a "partisan sniper?"

You may recall that people sent white powder to a variety of people, for a variety of reasons following 9-11. I wouldn't call that an insurrection, though.
