This page is to help you understand how to protect your home, and provide resources to help harden your home. Your home should be a place of refuge, a place where you can relax not worry about all the craziness going on in the world. To help make this happen, you first need to understand a few things. One, there is no way to completely protect your house. What you are going to do is harden your home, so that either the intruder is unable to get in, or that it takes long enough for the intruder to break in so that you are able to initiate your defensive plan to protect you and your family, and get law enforcement on the way. Secondly, depending on your location, having quick access to a firearm will give you an equalizing force to stop the intruders in their tracks. This involves responsible storage, and especially good training on the proper usage of the firearm. If you are unwilling to purchase and train with a firearm, you need to understand that the odds will NOT be in your favor. But, it is also not a magic talisman that will make the bad guys go away. Proper deployment and awareness will be essential.
