Absolutely. There have been home invasion murders in this county as well.
That is why we have guns where my wife and I can get to them, but intruders and kids cannot - at a moment's notice. It became painfull obvious , especially back during Isabelle, that you won't always be able to call the cops, and they won't always be there in time, even with a security system.
We practice getting to our guns in the dark, opening the safes, even while tired, just like you practice escape plans if the house were on fire.
Of course I carry inside the house often, and always while outside on my property. Had a gun on my hip a couple of months ago when a couple of unsavory looking chars were driving slowly back and forth up our road (which is unusual, since everyone goes 45 or more - some more like 70 ), while my wife and small son were on the front porch.
They pulled into the driveway , just then I stepped out from inside. I saw the look of dismay on their faces when they saw my gun. They quickly backed out onto the road. I don't know for sure they were up to no good, but the look of guilt on their faces told me al I needed to know.
What I would really like would be some type of bandolier style shoulder carry rig, to just throw over my shoulder; so I would have somewhere to hold my gun if i need to use my hands for something else when I hear something at night -
for example if it turned out to be a fire and I need to carry my boys out, would be handy to have somewhere to stick the gun without having had to pause to put on my pants
