When I took the concealed carry class this year, the instructor advised on have a safe room in your house, i.e. your bed room. Then if the scum bag broke in and you had the bed room door shut, if he tried to enter the bed room it would be the same as breaking into your house. Don't know if he was right or not, just my 2 cents.
Wish the libs would get off their ass and pass the castle law for North Carolina. We will have to vote them out to get that done.
