No one ever expects to wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of their bedroom door being kicked in.
No one expects it.
But one woman was prepared for it.
I was very pleased to see this story of a woman in Chattanooga, TN who shot at two men who broke into her bedroom in the middle of the night. She retrieved her gun, shot at them, and frightened them off.
However, not everyone is as prepared as this woman was and…
Home Invaders Are Unlike Other Criminals
You might think that if a criminal is in your home, he wants to avoid you as much as you want to avoid him.
He probably just wants to grab your TV and get out of there, right?
The fact was these two guys weren’t avoiding the woman in this story.
They were searching for her.
They knocked in her LOCKED bedroom door and if she hadn’t heard them – if the door hadn’t been locked – if she hadn’t been ready for them – she would have woken up to a hand over her mouth and two men in her bed.
Who wants to bet they weren’t after the TV?
Home Invasions Aren’t A “City Thing”
A lot of people think home invasions only happen in crime-plagued urban areas.
But this woman’s home was in a secluded area where neighbors wouldn’t see them and wouldn’t hear her screams.
The fact is, the more isolated your home is… the better a target it is.
When Seconds Count, The Cops Are Minutes Away
Of course, call 911 first (if you can).
But when an attacker is breaking down your door, it’s just you against your attackers.
Owning a gun isn’t enough.
It’s knowing what to do in those first critical seconds that can mean the difference between life… or a home invader’s thrill of rape, torture or death.
Are You Prepared For A Home Invasion?
If this story worries you, it should.
What you do in those first critical seconds when you find someone in your home can mean the difference between life and death.
They can mean the difference between scaring the criminals off right away, or being caught in a horrific tale of rape, torture, or worse.
Don’t believe these 3 home invasion lies:
1-nothing could happen to us in our nice community
2-the neighbors will call the police
3-the police would come to save me
Facing the brutal facts will protect your family.
No one expects a home invasion.
I hope it never happens to you.
But if, God forbid, it ever does… I want you to be prepared. My friend Jeff wrote a whole book on Home Defense Tactics that includes tips like these and many more that could save your life. You can get instant access here.
