Kansas now has a law allowing shoot to kill if somebody is unlawfully on your property. A warning shot must be fired prior, but I haven't heard of one incident where this has happened yet.
I personally keep shotgun shells in my room and a shotgun just downstairs which is extremely easy to get to. We also have a 9MM loaded at all times just in case. (Yes they are locked, and no we don't have children running around. No grandkids for my parents yet, lol.)
