Freedom, the ownership of a firearm wouldn’t have stopped the burglar.
Many years ago, the place I was living was “hit”.
They took a footlocker containing two relics (non-functioning) and left the long guns in a pile on the floor.
I was off teaching a class at the time so had most of my handguns with me,they missed them.
The timing was right around the time school let out.
They waited until I left and broke in. My ownership of firearms had nothing to do with my safety, being that I was not present, and everything to do with what they were after. They were later caught after several armed robberies.
The two relics, meant little. The long guns in a pile, annoying. The abuse of my dog, unforgivable.
