Protecting your home is important and preparing yourself for any situation to happen is even more important. How you prepare is key even if it is getting an alarm system or taking matters into your own hands.
People that break into homes never know what they are getting themselves into they are focused on getting in and getting out.
Things don't always go as planned and the majority of the time the person that is breaking into the home gets caught or even gets hurt.
In an article from Fox 2 News called "3 suspects held off in home invasion when mother unlocks gun in Walled Lake" by Ingrid Kelley and Fox 2 Staff stated
"Intruders broke into a family's Walled Lake home in the middle of the night. A mother jumped into action to protect her children.
The woman got the family's gun out, as they waited for police to arrive to protect her children. Police ended up arresting the three suspects, while tense moments were caught on video inside.
In the video you see two young boys wake up suddenly just after midnight on Monday. Their father had just left the family home near South Commerce Road and Indianwood Trail when his wife calls him to say that someone was breaking in."
In addition, during the break in the police were called and racial slurs were used towards the family but they are unsure if it was a hate crime.
No one was harmed during this incident but, the gun did go off. The incident is currently being investigated to see what the intention of the invasion was.
