Nice try, but a bit stupid on your part Phud.

My OP was intended to probe the idea that gun ownership could favor the homeowner in this limited sense. Here's a link that suggests the UK is worse off:

Home Invasions US vs UK

It seems to me that crooks with ANY weapon will assume that a home is sans guns and thus an easy target. So you remember the home invasion scene in "A Clockwork Orange"?

No evidence. Please see my post below.

The process of observation changes that which is observed, hence you cannot photograph reality.
