Who Needs a Gun? Fortunately, a Happy Ending

A very frightening and disturbing story linked to me by a friend is shared here
Police say two men who broke into a New Hampshire home and held a woman at gunpoint may have accidentally targeted the wrong home.
Disturbing in the least, terrifying if you are the victim.  The rest of the short update blurb on the link states that the perps may have been looking for money and/or drugs.  Fortunately, the lady who was attacked, lived and was unscathed. 

Obviously, it just goes to show, when second count, sometimes your gun is too far out of reach.  I'm sure most of the readers here have arms for personal protection and self defense, but when you are home, where do you keep them?   While it isn't practical to stash guns all around the house in various locations for a multitude of reasons, it makes you think that perhaps, you should be a little more strategic in the storage of your home defense arms.  We can certainly speculate as to whether or not this lady had any tools to protect herself or not or if it was even close enough to make a difference, but it does make us think that we should re-examine our personal "castle doctrine." 

Just goes to show that the world is a dangerous place, no matter where we live.
