This is a “what would you do?” scenario. You’re going about your business in your home. The time is late afternoon or early evening. Suddenly you hear the sound of your front door splintering in. You turn to see two black males, one wearing a white tank top and the other a blue polo shirt, entering your residence through the broken door.
1.) Draw or grab a firearm that is immediately next to you
2.) Grab a clubbing weapon that is immediately next to you (ex. Golf club, baseball bat, etc)
3.) Grab a stabbing weapon that is immediately next to you (ex. Kitchen knife, pocket knife, etc)
4.) Run to another room to grab a locked up or hidden firearm and confront the home invaders
5.) Run to another room to grab a stabbing or clubbing weapon and confront the home invaders
6.) Run to another room and attempt to hide while dialing 911
7.) Run out the backdoor of the house and attempt to escape
8.) Freeze like a deer in the headlights
9.) Rush the bad guys barehanded
10.) Other (explain)
I’m just a little curious to see how people would react in a situation where they presume themselves to be safe, yet are confronted by a sudden threat. It’s easy to say, “It’ll never happen to me” but what do we do if it does? The above situation is actually a direct description of a string of home invasions that have been occurring in my neck of the woods.
It always helps to have a plan in place, so vote and then explain, please. Keep in mind, this is strictly YOUR reaction, not what you expect a family member or a pet to do, but what YOU will do.
