This Must Drive The Gun Control Crazies...Crazy

Instapundit linked to a Popular Mechanics article about ways to protect yourself from home invasion.  To their credit, Popular Mechanics did remind readers that home invasions are "[s]tatistically rare but devastating...."  What is amazing is how many of the slides assume that their readers have a gun already, or may buy a gun to deal with this risk.  I can remember a time when pretty much any magazine that wasn't guns or hunting oriented would never suggest using a gun to defend yourself against criminals.

Thorny shrubbery - nature's barbed wire.

A quick Google search found somebody else with the same idea.

In fact, such articles would frequently tell you that the worst thing you could do would be be to have a gun. Here's a Google Books link to a typical article.
