Depending on what that individual was planning on doing. If they chose to break into a home knowing full well the owner was home and owned a firearm. They're either extremely brazen, stupid, or plan on the chance they may need to use a firearm of their own.

If they know the owner isn't home and know a gun/guns are inside that most definitely makes them a target for those looking to obtain a firearm illegally. This happened in my own neighborhood a few years back actually.
