And the Federal Government wants to take away their citizen's firearms? If people would take a handgun safety course, practice their shooting skills and be ready to protect their family. Many of these break-ins and home invasions might be reduced. Personal experience, the guy that broke into my Woodbridge home brought a knife to a gun fight, he ran away. PWPD responded fast but were not able to catch the guy. This intruder cuts the screens then enters through windows, he had used the same method on several nearby homes that same night. Hope he has since been caught.
