Go back and re-read your Texas Handgun laws Manual. You will discover that you can protect anyone's property, not just your own.

He, his wife and infant child are then tied together on the couch, he's bleeding profusely and in pain, and the assailant and an accomplice ransack the place looking for drugs, threaten their lives and won't believe they have no drugs.

Seems the previous tenant had been a druggie and these guys thought he still lived there. They terrorised a young couple and threatened the life of their infant child and eventually left them bound on the couch - all because of wrong information.

That sort of sh!t makes you think, "Hmmmm, perhaps we need proper self-defence laws."

I don't know what I'd do if someone invaded my home and threatened the lives of my children, but I'd want to do something, I would not want to feel as helpless as that bloke and his wife bound on the couch with their lives and the life of their infant at the mercy of armed thugs who shoot first then try to determine if they got the right people...

Hey all too true. Similar things have happened here with the Lebanese gangs mistakenly bursting into the wrong people's houses in the western suburbs, after drug deals gone wrong...

But I can't ever see the laws on self defence changing, at least not in Australia (don't know if you ever traditionally had any in NZ).

It's not like we ever had those rights and lost them through capricious political do-goodism...they were never in existence in the first place.

Someone I know does that with knives of various kinds...down the back of lounges, inside innocuous looking cupbaords, under beds etc. And he is a highly trained knife-fighter.

Still would do him bugger-all good up against the courts if he ever used them, I imagine

I keep a mossberg 590 with birdshot three birdshot rounds in the tube. Chambering a round is the warning, the next step is not gonna end well for them. I live in an apartment and my bedroom door faces my livivng room and can't risk penetration to the next apartment. Also, my barrel will fit under my door so I plan on taking their feet out. Also, I lock my doors religously

A plain ball-topped walking cane and a stout handle from a yard-broom. I tend to grab either of those if I have reason to believe that there's something going around the house.

Should give me an edge against a knife but not much else. I've done a bit of sword and quarterstaff training - enough to wield a stick with a bit more finesse than just waving it about.

I keep cocked & locked pistols hidden in every room in my home. Plus I keep a Ruger LCR in my pocket at all times. I also carry a Benchmade AFO in my pocket too.

During the day, my XD-40 is on my person in a SuperTuck Deluxe IWB holster. At bedtime, the gun and my cellphone go on a table next to a Surefire 6P flashlight modified with the xenon bulb unit. My wife's XD-9SC w/ Trijicon night sights is two steps away. Our bedroom door is a solid wood door with a deadbolt lock operated with a thumb bolt. We have rehearsed a routine for home invasion, including a cell-call to 911 and retreating to cover, and all force up to and including deadly force will be used against the person or persons that try to break through the door.
