“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
There are other ways to be safe, like getting good door locks. Double checking that your door and windows are locked before going to sleep or leaving home. Then there is dealing with your own hypersensitivity and imagination: how much in danger are you actually? How much is merely in your mind? Keeping a baseball bat around. Being generally a scary person can make some people leave you alone.
I'm on my phone so I couldn't vote but if I could I would vote other. I think individuals who are properly trained with firearms are more safe but individuals who aren't properly trained are less safe. The reason I voted other is because I think for the untrained people it is much wiser to use something else for protection such as pepper spray or a taser. Yes, there would be some cases where having a gun would be safer than pepper spray or a taser, but those cases are rare. If people owned alternatives like I've talked about instead of guns then obviously gun related accidents would drop significantly. Legally, it is much more difficult and complicated but from an ideas only perspective, alternatives are overall better than guns.
I have nothing against gun ownership. On the other hand, lately it seems that many Americans use gun rights as a way to hold the USA hostage. They want to hold a gun to everyones' head by pretending to merely be complaining for gun rights. What I suspect they want is a hostile takeover and to follow Pol Pot's idea for Cambodia inside America, force everyone into an agrarian lifestyle, set landmines everywhere to blow our legs off, then set up sanctions so we are all near death in understaffed hospitals without enough medicine.
