37. "You can't expect older or debilitated people (like me) to just take a beating and hope for the best

Yeah, I think some can expect that. They would tell you if you owned a gun you would probably shoot yourself and a bunch of other people or something. Then cite how many people do so (while not telling you how many DON'T because that would not fit into their story line to promote fear).

If someone breaks in, calmly ask them to wait, call the police, and just hang out having some coffee together until they arrive.

Of course you would probably get blamed because you didn't secure your home enough (why buy a gun, get a better lock!).
