Fuking disgusting. I'm generally pro-gun control, but that does not mean I am anti-gun - especially for home protection. My current living situation does dictate that I don't really need a firearm but when that changes, I fully intend to have something for exactly the reason you describe.
No interest in carrying or having something fancy or over the top, but situations like Sandy and the aftermath shows you that prudence is necessary.
