A home invasion occurs when a member of the household is present during the crime. This threat is real and it happens more often than you think. According to the Department of Justice, 3.7 million burglaries occur each year. 28% of those reported burglaries were home invasions. Of those 28%, 26% were violent confrontations. Based on those statistics, a violent home invasion occurs roughly every two minutes!
As a protector of your home, having a plan is critical to confronting and surviving a violent home invasion. Plans will be different for each homeowner depending on their location & threat landscape, the layout of their home, emergency service response time, and whether or not they have access to firearms.
The protector wants every advantage. Security systems and firearms are tools, a source of survival. Their firearm needs to be ready when they are and fitted to their everyday life. When the worst happens, they are prepared.
So, how can you, the protector, lockdown your house to keep yourself and your family safe?
