We have seen our bee club membership explode in the last few months. Many of the new members are women who are first time beekeepers and with only backyards to keeps their hives.

All well and good, but if and when that rare violent crime occurs,I would much rather have the option of defense. That well run government can't be there in time for a crisis intervention when someone approaches your door with the intent of committing a crime.
Cozy feelings are nice to have, but look at the world around you. I prefer to have a big stick and not need to use it, than wait for someone with a big stick come to my aid when I have been subdued.
As an aside, most of the violent crimes occur in our country where  the strongest gun laws are in place. Criminals try not to be confronted with an armed homeowner defending their castle.
It is not an open crap shoot on every street corner like the media tries to portray it.
 And remember this :   Those that beat their guns into plow shares will be ruled over by those who do not.

So, what do you protect your home with and why? And I didn't mention carry much here because I can't comment on what I can't do - but when you aren't home, what goes with you?

You can carry all you want, Practice civil disobedience.
A crime happens when a victim is harmed not because of disobeying unjust "laws".

 For home defense I prefer an "illegal" sawed off 410 followed by the .380. Sound too light? Break in and find out.
For carry, concealed or open, it's the .380 everytime. Compact and lightweight are the 2 most important criteria to me for carry purposes. Well placed shots are more important than stopping power.

I never use eyelets on new or used frames but I do have an eyelet tool made from a timber file handle and a bicycle spoke. It probably holds 20 or my eyelets.

I find if you take the sting out as quickly and a carefully as possible it will minimise the swelling. Use the hive tool st SCRATCH it out if you have to.
if the itching starts, I rub alcohol on the area which seems to neutralize the venom. Works for me

Some Apitherapy practitioners recommend NOT to drink or rub alcohol as it minimises the venom effect...which is what beekeepers want anyway

And not judging Spain or Europe either, but as Buzzbee said "of all places you would think Europe had a different mindset on guns" but there are many points being missed. With average response times in many areas of the US being 20 minutes or longer, is there really protection by the law if they are speeding as fast as they can to get to you but still 20 minutes away?

Response times in Europe aren't much better. I doubt the police in my area would even be able to locate my farmhouse let alone under 20 minutes. The difference between the US and other first world countries is not just about gun-ownership (legal or not) it is mostly about the reality and perception of crime. On this side of the Atlantic, violent crime is a rare occurence and most of it is alcohol fuelled brawls at the weekend.

To give you an example, last week we had an armed bank robbery in the NW of Spain with the robber and one policewoman shot dead and another seriously injured. The robbery in itself was a novelty but the shootout was an extraordinary event and the deaths even more so. Hopefully this situation isn't routine in the US but over here it is a very rare occurence on par with being hit by lightning.
