I have a sign as you approach my front and back door that reads:
"The owner of this property is armed. There is nothing inside worth risking your life for."
All my neighbors like the sign and I have no solicitors.
I read somewhere that several of the names published were of sexual assault victims whose *stalker/attackers/etc* now have their victims (previously undisclosed) addresses. At least these thugs know their victims are packing, now. Still unsettling, none the less.
I agree...they know you are armed but they don’t know you’re home...they go to next house because yours presents too much unknown risk.
“The owner of this property is armed. There is nothing inside worth risking your life for.”
I’ve seen that warning put more simply,
“There is nothing inside this house that is worth your life.”
And sooner or later some Amish Darwin is going to go “I ain’t afraid of your m**********ng gun, man! I be coming in blazin’ if that what it takes!”
After which it will be time for some garbage removal.
