Will the police be angry/willing to come to my house and check on it?
I'm home alone (My roomate is at her mom's with our great dane) with my little terrier. I'm a young girl, about 5'5, 120 pounds. It's late at night, and there was a robbery a few houses down a few nights ago. It doesn't look like anyone is home, because my car is in the garage.
Earlier I went to check if my roommate was home and the motion sensor light in our front yard was on. Shortly after, the neighbors dogs went insane until they called them in. I put our garage light on lock, or thought I did, so I could do laundry, and now it's off again. I have thought I heard things a few times.
I kind of want to call the police and have them check out the house. I have the gun (which I've never shot), and I've locked myself in my room, but I'm afraid to go out.
I'm afraid that since I was raped at gunpoint a couple of years ago, that I'm just overly skittish when left alone at night. (My dog is good for nothing when it comes to guarding, or even warning) I don't want to piss the police off is they come and the sounds are my imagination, but then, I would feel alot better if they did. My roommate won't be home until tomorrow.
Should I call?
Unfortunately, I am in a new state and don't reallly have any friends to speak of, other than my roommate. I don't know my neighbors well either, and that would require me to leave my room, and then the house. It's a big, dark house, and I am a wimp. Haha.

the problem if they come its you who could get in trouble since you have and
don't have permit to have one - you don't tell us if you were ever train how use one
which is the law in some state before you can own gun
plus its very dangerous there is 80 % chance it will be family member
who get shot with the gun like you say you skittish and hear noise
you shoot only to find the person who you just shot was another family member
its happened too many times
now you could call but you will have to advise you have gun

Do you have a friend you could call to keep you company, or even the neighbour?
Try a friend, relative or neighbour before you try the police :)

If you feel like you are in legit danger. Please call the Police, that is what they are there for. I'm sure they will understand. I have a feeling they would rather you be safe than dead or robbed. Please call them.
