Burglars had better beware. With the crime rate going up, many have purchased firearms and if you break into a home armed with a knife, you may find yourself carried out in a coroner's body bag. It's pretty hard to prosecute a homeowner in Pennsylvania using a gun to protect themselves from an armed intruder. Nothing says a nastier hello to unwelcome guest than a shotgun with 00 buck.
