Terrible advice indeed. Imagine still having kids at home and they decided to sneak back in after sneaking out... Ooof.This is horrible advice. Any defensive firearm you plan on using at night should have a light attached to it. With sufficient candela, you can place the hotspot on the threat's face and remove their ability to see anything but a blinding light from somewhere in the center of their vision. You can also use baseboard or umbrella lighting to illuminate rooms without needing to either be in them or flag what may be a family member with your muzzle.
Positive target ID is something that has to happen. You'll need a light for this if it's dark.
