Sad case. Too bad they didn't just call 911 and hide somewhere in the basement. The scary part is that there were 6 of them. Glad the creeps were all caught.
I have already planned a defense and would only venture out of the master bedroom if one of the kids was there. Otherwise, it is just me and my wife. I have two loaded weapons, my 20 ga and my SP101. Maybe I ought to add a third loaded weapon to that as well.
