Police forces deter crime merely in the general sense and only infrequently are able to prevent specific acts of violence. Thus, no rational family should be without a weapon, secure in the home yet readily available. Probably the optimum gun for the defense of a home is the civilian version of the military M-l6 (e.g. Colt AR-15 Sporter, Armalite AR-10, others). Of course, this is the last weapon gun-control activists want in the possession of the average citizen.
