So many options besides shotgun

How many ways could a person solve the predicament of an unwanted intruder who did not have a weapon? Instead of picking up a shotgun and giving the intruder a weapon to grab a hold of, one could pick up a phone and call 911, talk calmly to the person, keep a cool head, think rationally, walk out of the house and use a cell phone to call for help, or walk out, get in a car and drive for help.

Any of the above options is easier than living with the fact that a person’s life has been taken by you and that your possessions are worth more to you than someone’s life.
