Time and time again I see future victims giving into the DA's plea deals of probation, usually between 3-6 year terms. Which comes with its own laws that you have to abide by and can even override state laws. To even strip ones rights to visit ones family cause of firearms, whether or not said firearms are locked away according to state law, see PC25135.
What I personally believe is that there's a hidden criminal aspect to it. It surrounds personal property. Whether a firearm, electronics, or even the housing itself. So if you find yourself going through the courts, you would be better off to serve a prison sentence proven guilty by a jury, or you could get your family and or friends subjected to their thirst of greed.
