I am in no way saying you are stupid but, anyone who would use anything but lethal force against a criminal with an intent to do your harm is an idiot.
You may fend off an attack and said individual will live.
He/She will then, Sue you for all of your worldly goods and then have your wages garnished for the rest of your life and then same said person will then victimize more individuals maybe even kill them.
They may also come back for you.
And if you fail at exterminating such a parasite you may just deserve any retaliation that comes your way.
Some people may disagree with me about using the spray but homeowners have been prosecuted before for doing just things.
And now for the capper, when giving the Police report only my statement will be taken as the offender will be unable to speak.

Yep, .45 is some serious business.
I have a very alert 4 year old son, who follows me everywhere, and imitates everything I do.
As for my young boy, my opinion is that he has no need to know that there are any weapons in the house.
I don't even leave magazines (reading material, not mags!) laying around, and if any of my guns were not stored in the safe, well, there not in my nightstand, either.
My thoughts are that he won't go looking for something that ain't there.
That combined with the physical limitations of a 4 year old, and I feel very confident that my home is as safe, if not safer, than a home without firearms.
