Who says you HAVE to? Jeesh we dont live in a world without choices. There are many choices available to you including stun guns, home alarm systems,
panic rooms etc etc. Look it up on the internet and stop worrying about killing someone for christs sake. If you dont want to kill someone then DONT.
Take steps to protect your family and yourself. I dont own a gun and i dont wander around everyday freaked out like you seem to be, about whether i am
going to ever HAVE to kill someone. I made the decision a long time ago i have no issue at all in taking a life if i needed to in order to protect my
children. Thats a personal decision i made and one i would have to live with. I can live with it. You do not need others on here or anywhere else
telling you what THEY would do in order for you to know what YOU should do. Thats just idiotic. If you cannot make up your own mind on how best to
protect your family you need more help than people on here can give. Grow up and do what you need to do for the ones you love.
In a perfect world, we could all bend the world to our wills, and those options would always be available.
This is not a perfect world, and they are not always available.
One other note: I do security, consultations and protective services for a living these days. The "home alarm systems" you mention are the biggest
joke in the industry, and are nothing more than 'money for nothing' for the folks that run those "services".
Stun guns are nice, as long as you are able to use them (enough bulk or speed against a lightly armed opponent). If the attacker has a gun themselves,
or is able to grasp or grapple you, your toast. No nice way to put it.
In 14 years of doing this sort of work, I've yet to run into anyone with enough money for a "panic room", at least not one that would be effective,
so I can't really comment on "panic rooms", other than to say that if I'm panicked, locked into a room with no maneuverability is the LAST place
I'd want to be. However, that is only a personal preference, not a professional assessment.
