There is a silver lining in all this. For years the anti-gun people have said if anything happens just dial 911. It now appears that before dialing 911 one should consult with an attorney and see if your situation meets with whatever the current 911 criteria is. If it's a garage burglary that involves the theft of a $3000 bicycle, this would appear to me to be felony theft and would warrant a call. If a bank is robbed of $3000 911 is normally called. As the structure is a garage then it may not warrant such a call.
At any rate statements such as "you don't need a gun, just call 911" now appear simply ludicrous.
