I am not going to give 100's of examples but I am going to ask that people share ideas, give 100's of examples. Let's pretend there are no guns. Fellow monkey @ditch witch wrote- Look around the room you are in, do you see something that you could use as a weapon? Look around your kitchen, anything there? I see a cast iron fry pan that could be used in close contact. Knives, chili powder and basic forks could save you and your family. What could you put on the other side of the door or window to deter/slow someone from raiding your home? What about using all the cords in your home to tack across windows to slow invasion? Curtain rods, standing lamps, or dowels from the banister all can be used.
