If you guys allowed guns, you could have eliminated the threat to your family...
Assuming this is legit (and there are a lot of things not adding up)...you should be thankful all they stole were "things" that can be
replaced...unlike your children.
Personally, even armed with a shotgun, if I see a guy with a knife in my house, I'm going to be terrified for the safety of my loved ones. Not too
terrified to make him a big red mess....but still terrified.
Of course, if anyone broke into our place at night, they'd have a lot of challenges. First, they'd have to get through the fence, even if they do,
they have to somehow get the large gate open to get a vehicle near the house.
Assuming they do that quietly, they'll trip the alarms if they go in through a window or door. Then, the dogs will bark (and likely attack), the
cockatoo will then scream. Our bedroom door is locked at night, but by this time, I'd already have gone out the back porch door armed with a shotgun
and pistol (and in through the house that way), while my wife arms herself with a pistol. Our home is pretty dark at night, and the light switches
aren't always in easy to find areas, but of course, we know where they are.
You may not be able to have guns, but even if you just get some battery powered alarms on portals, you'd at least know someone was in. And of course,
even a fake gun can be intimidating, especially to robbers who don't have one...and they don't KNOW yours is fake.
