Call the police and/or do what the buglar want. Anyway, if your burglar only has a knife you don't even need a gun to defend yourself lol. You know POLICE is there for that too. In Canada (you can also look at Australia, UK, etc...), the gun laws are pretty strict and our crime rate is much lower than in the USA. Again, it's not your HUMAN RIGHTS, since it's only in the USA where it's their "right" to possess firearms. As far as i know, the Americans are not the only humans on Earth. Again, I'll repeat the same thing to you again, it's not because you regulate guns that the citizen won't have access to some of them. It will just be more appropriate and safer for EVERYONE. Some people simply don't understand the principle of REGULATION, it's not forbidding the usage of guns, it's simply guiding the population on their usage by giving them boundaries. It's in human nature to always try to push boundaries when they have too much freedom. By regulating the guns it would give everyone who really feel the need to have a firearm to have one without putting in danger your neighbour. Also it would even things up because nobody would have a very big, dangerous and useless firearms that is not build for protection but for aggression.

Based on various observations, reports, and data, I sincerely don't know how much gun regulation has an effect on safety, especially when there have been some studies that show that gun control has a positive correlation with violent crime and other studies that show that gun control has a negative correlation. Other factors such as mental health, education, and poverty likely have much greater effects.
Look at every countries with gun laws that are much stricter than the USA and they all have a WAY smaller gun violence problem.
