Completely different here. In CO they expect you to wait for the cops and be killed, if you every had a chance to call. I have been in several home invasions. YOU DON"T GET TIME TO CALL. In CA, the growers are allowed under Castle Doctrine to have completely un-registered fire arms. No registration law here. To get a conceled carrry is almost impossible in most of the counties. But, when they kill these thugs, the grower often gets a pat on the back.
