No it wouldn't have.....there would have been more than 1 on the floor. At least in my case it would have been a Mossberg 590 staring at the door from about 10 feet back with #4 Buckshot in the tube. 4 people squeezing through a 36" doorway with that aimed at them does not end well for them, I don't care how bad your aim becomes under duress.
Mind you, this would have also been after the 911 call was placed for the fight in the front yard.
