Even if you live in a safe community, a mugging or home invasion is still a frightening possibility. According to the FBI, a property crime happens every three seconds. What’s more, there were 3.8 million home invasions last year. Although the majority of those incidents were burglaries when the homeowners were out, an alarming 7% involved a violent confrontation.
Crime rates may go up and down, but crime will always be with us. It’s thus important to be prepared to defend your home and your loved ones from an intruder. Here are a few ways.
Creatively Conceal a Weapon
Women are unfortunately more vulnerable to attacks, whether outside the home or in targeted invasions. If you are a woman who carries a firearm for protection, gun concealment purses are a great way to make sure your weapon is readily available when you’re out or approaching your home at night.
