John was lucky because the intruder robbed him, but left him alive.
Yeah, so lucky that he was only robbed, and not robbed and murdered. I guess I’m lucky that I’ve made it 29 years without being murdered too.
If you come face to face with an intruder and you’re not prepared, lie down and do not look at them. Pretend to have a heart attack or breathing problem.
“Don’t let fear paralyze you. When you become paralyzed by fear, that’s when you really do become a victim,”

They aren’t wrong, but ignoring the best tool for the job when doing an article about home defense is a little ridiculous.
