Seems like I am hearing a lot more reports on people being subjected to home invasions, most tend to be from armed intruders and ending up in personal harm.
My sister has been subject to 2 home invasions, once while she lived in Ryde - non violent, more of a burgerly while she slept. 2nd one was in Epping and the intruder smashed through the loungeroom window and abducted her, she escaped when the guy had to get petrol. Both instances involved 2 x small children being present, first instance hubby was away working on an oil rig, second instance was after hubby had passed away - so she was quite vulnerable in each case.
Now, if I could do what I would like to do, I would buy a firearm and feel a little more in control. Of course this is not legal and it concerns me that I am vulnerable and have little control over my own protection and the protection of my wife.
Is this something I should be concerned about? Is the protection of your family and property something that worries you?
Am I worrying about something that has an extremely low chance possibility of happening? I guess I am a little more sensitive since my sister has had 2 x occurrances.
Would like to hear what others have to say about personal and property protection.
