    This is my own opinion but what happens when some idiot just breaks into your home late at nite or whenever. This happened to me last year, my daughter woke up and was very scared crying say a man was in her room asking her how old was she. What saved her my young son was sleeping with her and he started whining and this is when the guy broke and ran. This was 3:00 am and I felt so bad because even if I had caught him in my childs room, I did not have anything to defend my children nor myself. The idiot took a chance and broke in thru bathroom window and when he exited he left the back door wide opened. Im not a gun lover but we all need something to protect us because you never know when some idiot will break in your home. No one is exempt from this. I felt so violated. We are living in the times now when people are doing everything. Please have something to protect yourself and your love ones. One true fact, if I had caught him attacking my daughter and if I did have a gun, I would have empty it and would not be sorry. Stay out of a persons home. If you break in, you deserve to get whatever happens to you.

      Good that you have a weapon, but please! Practice, practice, practice, practice and then practice some more. Situational practice, NOT target practice. It is VERY EASY to shoot the wrong thing when dealing w/ a sudden situation. Little things like "What side of the bed do I get out of when I think there is a problem?" "Do the kids know to STAY PUT and MAKE noise/pass information until it is over." Etc. I could go on, but you get the idea, I hope. I think stranger-in-the-house drills are MANDATORY for homeowners, just like fire drills. Heh. My dad came w/in a whisper of shooting me one night when I got up to get a drink of water, so I speak from experience. Know the law, too.

      Simple: Stop them. In their tracks. Florida law fully provides for this. The only part missing is the individual accepting the fact that they are responsible for their own personal safety. The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled - and published the ruling - that the police have no duty to protect individual citizens. . so why this isn't being done by the citizens I have no clue. I guess for the same reason the thugs are not being taught respect either for others, or themselves.

      I know what I would do and it wouldn't involve asking the intruder if he/she had a bad childhood, if he/she didn't receive enough hugs from their mommy etc.!

    I know this area well. It is infested with drug trafficking.

    I want to respond to the person who wrote the first comment. It has nothing to do with with women popping out kids from different fathers. Our job is to raise our kids til the get 18 then after that they are considered an adult. Whatever our kids do after they leave home is on them not saying that we arent suppose to worry or anything but we cant keep our kids tied to us for the rest of our lives.

      That is like saying that you are not responsible for what a bullet does after it leaves the barrel, even though you loaded the gun and pulled the trigger.

        It is much harder to aim a kid than a gun.

          You are correct. Funny thing is that it's easier to make a kid then a gun.

    Someone breaks into my house, they will be shot and that is the reason why we have the Castle Doctrine in the state of Florida.

      We no longer have the Castle Doctrine in Florida. We are now a Stand Your Ground state.

      We can do nothing about this generation that's being raised to have no values, and do nothing productive with their lives. Govt. programs can NOT help either. The govt. needs to stop rewarding females to pop out illegitimate kids, each with a different father, with no idea what proper parenting means. Perhaps THEN we would see some of this crime start to go away. In the meantime, get yourself a gun!
