While we don’t have more details, we can use this incident as a reminder to think about where you keep your home defense guns. Do you carry a gun on your while you are home? When you are sleeping, how close is your gun? How easy is it to access? How are you storing them if you have children or others in the home that shouldn’t have access to the guns?
Incidents like these can happen at any time and anywhere. As a responsibly armed citizen, you should think through these things, so you have a plan of action before something like this happens to you.
