I hope everyone will be safe. As our home was burglarized when I was approx. 10 years old while we all were asleep I fully understand what the mental issues are of finding out a stranger violated your privacy and not knowing if the person will come back for more is very scary.
Having a gun in the house makes you feel more safe but I rather have the bad guys stay away than having to use it as I don't think shooting someone will be something that won't affect your life.

Overall it seems to be the same kind of young people committing these crimes as often we see young bored people who are not supervised by their parents doing things like this.

Hopefully parents will realize that they are the ones partially responsible for their kids hanging out with the wrong crowd and becoming the wrong crowd.

I got burglarized many years ago (like 25) when I was living in New England. Daytime, while everyone was at work/school. The perpetrators traumatized our poor small dog, urinated on my bed (yes, really), and of course tore the house to shreds while in the process of stealing most things of value.

I never felt that violated in my life.

If you see them, take their picture, they may be regulars at the county jail.
