    Clearly they are not.. But I am. And I deserve the right to defend myself if one of these idiots comes near my home or my children.

        Actually they would come to his home because THEY are crooks and want money. If you think that criminals are the only ones who get their houses broken into then you are in for a sad awakening some day.
