While the above is more than possible and I wish for her wellness if so, is there any chance of providing an article/link to confirm this??
...They beat her up, she is in her late 60s, duck tape her, dragged her around by her hair, and robbed her. After they left she was able to slip out of her coat that had all the duck tape on it, and go next store... She was beat up pretty good.
I practiced with my wife tonight to get one of my guns aim it and shoot until I felt secured she had pretty good skill.
I don't get this part??
All of our debates about guns really came to a close for me in I see them as first line of defense... This was a really in my face event as to why I'm armed.

funny story, we always have those adt guys come and they want to come in our house and see our disabled alarm system. Thats when I let them in and inform them that we are always home and armed and we don't want them to know about are whereabouts. Thats usually when they leave.
OP: Dont be so naive. 90% of home invasions happen in upscale neighborhoods.Criminals want your stuff. Im glad you and your neighbor are ok though.

Home invaders should never be rewarded with their lives intact. It should be a highly fatal line of work.

My house can't really be suddenly invaded, unless it's someone the dogs know. If anyone pulls up my driveway I hear them most times, even when I am sleeping. Gravel is noisy, and there is not a lot of crappy noise here in the woods.
I was voicing my low opinion of ADT and such in general. Your idea might work in the burbs for sure, but only if your neighbors actually like you
