Here's why: I call it Four Minutes of Terror
Hard to watch | Cornered Cat: In the video below, you’ll see an incredible event: a machete-wielding attacker literally hacks his way through a locked apartment door. The resident does what he needs to do to protect himself and others in the home. It’s like a scene out of a horror movie — but most directors wouldn’t use the footage, because what audience would believe that a door could be so flimsy? Or that someone with a machete would hack his way through it? Nevertheless, this really happened(The video is embedded in the linked website; click on "Cornered Cat".)
Unfortunately, the Liberal Press contends that home invasions are rare, to the point of 'never happen'. The video embedded in the above proves otherwise (as does this video link).
Fortunately, the family situation depicted by Cornered Cat turned out .. um, not well (the invader was shot), but the family was uninjured. Traumatized, of course, but physically unharmed.
The police described this as a justifiable self-defense shooting.
Some anti-gun folks contend that there is no reason why anyone should have a gun.
This shows one reason why people might choose to have a gun.
It may make the difference between being a victim, or a being a survivor.
PS: I need a stronger door.
