Grab a gun, shoot the invader? Uh, no. Something a little more sophisticated, perhaps. I’ve been speaking with an Army vet who “hardened” targets in Iraq. We’re talking about setting up a tactical security service for homeowners. (Need something to pay the bills until TTAG gets on its feet, financially.) We’d come to your house and see it from the perspective of a home invader/burglar. We’d recommend ways to make it more difficult for them to gain entry, evaluate and test (and install if ncessary) the alarm system. We’d then devise a home defense strategy. If the client’s game, we’ll add a firearms element—based on the structure and the client’s lifestyle and abilities. We’d guide them through the legal ins and outs of firearms ownership, then help them purchase the right weapon (if needs be) and train them on a regular basis on how to use it. But it’s all based on The Plan: what they’re supposed to do in a home invasion scenario given their physical surrounds. Got one?
