I'd be much more concerned about someone breaking in and taking my firearm and using it to kill someone else, and I'd bet those odds are higher. Caveat: If I lived anywhere that might be considered remote I'd likely view differently and there are also wild animals to consider. I don't mean to redirect OP, fn shame, I'd be so pissed I'd go out and buy a flamethrower and stand in my backyard shotgunning beers and screaming for them to come back and try again...

But big mean dog that understands human intentions > firearm for me.

No win situation with scumbags really.
My family has like 3 gas stations, a bread factory, and a hardware store that we collect rent from. Most of our stations are in Riverdale, and College Park GA. So yeah, most of the people who have came into any of our stores either have held up a C-Store or gas station, or know of someone who has.
