Nearly every week I see TV reporters interviewing residents who have had their homes broken into by armed burglers. The woman will be whimpering about how she had to barricade her children into an upstairs bedroom after hearing her door or window being broken through. Instead of being on the "fearing" end of such an encounter, the adult of the household should be in the attacking, aggressive end of it through proper training in the use of a firearm, including regular mandatory practice sessions with it at the Local Public Shooting Range. When a properly trained adult hears someone breaking in, instead of whimpering, shaking, and looking for some place to hide, he should be prepared with a Revolver or Semi-Automatic Pistol with a full magazine, (safety off), ready to encounter and kill if necessary, anyone violating his home and family! The preparation and training for this defense should me made mandatory by law! Hal Pollner and Wife, registered firearm owners and users at our local shooting range.
