Obviously in this case...being awake? Not sure how a weapon would have helped. A dog certainly would have alerted you. Or maybe an alarm.

My mom doesn't like guns so she has cans of Raid wasp spray! 20 foot range and I bet it burns your eyes out with that stream!

Marbles and jacks on the floor in front of the door and 2 cans of paint swinging from the banister. Duh!

Oh... and a machete.

Why no gun? If the next guy has one, a club will likely do no good.

I was asleep, was around 2am. Roommates' gf heard someone messing with the door but assumed it was me coming home drunk. House is a bunch of single dudes in their 20s

Bowie knife or K-Bar fighting knife, baseball bat, hatchet or tomahawk. Hell, you can use a hammer and a screwdriver.

Tactical flash light; dog; and a bat.. The dog alerts you. The flash light blinds them; so you can beat them with a bat.  Get a secuirty system; or at least a fake camera..... My advice get a gun... Its easier to ask forgiveness than permission.  Just keep it on the DL; locked but accessible... And for fucks sake practice with it

My grandfather was an OG badass. Avid Hunter. WW2 vet. Boxer in the Army. He always told me to have "something" available to you in every room in the house.
