Last week a co-worker of mine was driving into work from San Antonio when he got the dreaded call. Someone had broken into his home while his wife and son were home. This is at roughly 10-10:30 at night. I got to work and my first reaction was "how many bad guys did she shoot?"...none, oh thats right, its a "gun-free zone". My reply, well, that sucks, but the odds could've been different. Supposedly one was caught shortly after but the psychological effects on the Mrs. were detrimental. For the last 6 months, i've been telling him that working nights, an hour plus away, that his home should be protected. His wife should have working knowledge of a firearm, be it a shotgun, rifle, or handgun. He always put it on the back burner and said "yeah I know but I just dont have time". Well, he found the time after this incident! He bought a Glock something or other the other day. I've been very supportive of his decision and will probably help him do a security overhaul of his home. Another positive is that it has a LOT of other folks in the "office" asking me about CHL and HD guns, etc.
