US prisons aren't the 'fullest' in terms of overcrowding, but in terms of incarceration rate as a proportion of the whole population, the US is certainly the highest in the world, and by quite along way.
The US has 4 percent of the worlds population and 25 percent of the worlds prisoners.
Oh no, I can appreciate all that. Im just answering the question - what is best?
If I can have a gun but no legal system, or a legal system but no gun, I know which one will protect my home the best.
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Think about it.
I know. Don't read too much into what I'm saying - I'm not saying guns are bad.
Doughnuts of doom:
African American women show the way:
Shotgun or Handgun for home defence....
Pending the size and area space in your home. If it is easy enough to menouver around. The 12 or 20 gauge Shotgun is the best option for home self defence.
Bird shot shells are always a good stopper.
XX double buck shot shells if you wanna blast the bad guy to pieces.
If too small an interior area, there are shorter barrel shotguns with a pistol grip. 'Mossberg' makes a popular pump action model in both gauges.
Personal concealed carry I like the 'Beretta' 9mm caliber in the fall/ winter months. And the compact 'Bersa Thunder' .380 caliber in the spring/ summer months.
Both are very reliable handguns, with fine reputations.
I like the Federal Hydra Shock HP ammo.
Cor-Bon HP ammo is very good too.
When it comes to the life and protection of yourself and loveones. Never rely on in-expensive, cheap made firearms or low budget ammunition.
It's worth the extra dollars for quality, and will be the best lifetime investment anyone can make.
Know your firearm and respect it...... And remember to always keep a tight grip on the grip.

Source for that statistic?
That just said we have more prisoners than anybody today. I want proof of
whats your point?> This article doesnt show where I am incorrect.
Mine has pretty much with the same add on's....all black.
My wife prefers her AK Draco in 7.62x39mm
Of course it does.
That invalidates your original quote:
Response time is at best 10-15 minutes even in a populated area, in the country you are looking at 45 minutes to an hour. Lots of things can happen in 10 minutes and I would rather not hink about what could happen in an hour.
The police are good at cleaning up the mess, and filling out reports, once the crime has already been committed.
Once the perp is dead or incapacitated (most likely duct taped to a post or something just as immobile), then I'll get the phone. Only an idiot would worry about the phone when a criminal is in their home. While I wait for the cop to get there might as well make some coffee (cops like coffee especially on cold nights), might as well see whats on cable this time of night while I wait.
The best bet is a short barreled pump shot gun (riot gun), and if you know what the hell you are doing turning around isn't that big a deal. Identify the target and remove the threat, or at least that's the way we do it my house.
And that is the only way to handle it.
Chuck's a p(*)(*)(*)!
Anyone who takes chances with their lives and those of their family members is a fool.
The only person taking chances is the idiot who broke in my house.
A nuclear arsenal. Let everyone know that if anyone attacks you, you have a second strike capacity that will take out the attacker, his family, and his entire species.
