The most important aspect to defending your home is having a “force multiplier” in hand to stop the threat immediately before anyone in your family gets hurt. While a mom can have the family firearm in hand, there are other home weapons readily available for children to distract a criminal, if necessary, to give mom the angle needed to shoot and stop the threat.
These type weapons include:
- backpack thrown at their face
- a DVD container full of chump change
- lamp stand
- iron candle stick
- skillet from the kitchen
Note: Never go to the kitchen and show perps which drawer the knives are kept. A knife is no match against a criminal with a gun.
Remember: You know your home better than any invader and it’s up to you to position yourself to be in control of the situation to stop the threat.
