R_I: Great idea. I've got a couple of those. I'll hang one near the bed, which is probably a good idea anyway. I don't worry much about somebody walking into my house because of a thermonuclear-paranoid/pms/bitch lab retriever which growls at flies.

If you do not feel comfortable with firearms, I recommend a 1A:10B:C fire extinguisher. Discharge it at their face, choking and blinding them with that nasty yellow powder, then repeatedly clock them with the fire extinguisher its self until they stop presenting themselves as a threat..

Plus, if the need arises, you can use it as a fire extinguisher.

bea, although I don't agree with your "gun owners are more likely to get shot" statement, let's suppose it has a smidgen of truth to it. I would then argue that the smidgen of which we speak also are the owners of other items of value, items the some would kill for to support an illegal habit. If it comes to a showdown in the farthest corner of my home I would much rather die protecting my family, myself and yes, my property than to die helplessly watching some pos do who knows what. And as someone else said, he wouldn't have to bring a weapon in with him, most homes have any number of make-do weapons at his disposal. Those are also at my disposal. I just happen to know where the better ones are stashed.

I lock everything. I also have a security camera that's hidden near my rear walkway from the alley. A few months ago it caught a neighborhood kid at 247am. I printed off a copy and gave it to him. He hasn't been back.

I don't keep the spare tire in my car aired up because I'm terrified of having a flat on the road. I view having a spare as a reasonable precaution. Same thing with legally and safely carrying a firearm.

Given that people who live with guns are more likely to be shot than people who don't, I'm not sure guns are the best protection. Just an observation.

Yes, I lock doors. Some precautions are prudent, while others are not. The risks of having a gun in the home does not make them prudent things to own, in my opinion.

I also don't wear a crash helmet when walking through my home, even though I know I am far more likely to fall and die from hitting my head than I am from being shot in my own home by an intruder. But we all must make our own decisions when it comes to risks we take and personal safety.

If someone broke into my home, the last thing I want to do is hurt them. It's still on the list, but it's the last thing.

Dear LJW can your next question be, "Have you ever shot anyone"?

No need. Anyone besides my wife or I won't get past the door any way. The only time we lock our doors is when we go on vacation.

Only on the weekends. And sometimes when I go out of town.

Nope,
Hell I don't even have keys.

Besides, I have a small penis.

Been shooting since the fall of '68 Babbie. Come on over, see if you are right or not. Course you would have to break in first. Is that something you do for a living? Hope no thieves know where you live, you are giving them a golden invitation with your advertising you don't have a gun or the stones to use one.

Are the non-locking door peeps the same ones that leave their cars running and "warming up" outside in the winter?

This country is turning more scared by the minute.

Why are all you conservatives so wimpy?

Know what you are shooting at before you pull the trigger. Don't just spray and pray. I have bought glass knicknacks at thrift stores and put them on window sills.
