So, now burglars are just kicking down doors, hmm? It seems that with the lack of employment we have, thanks to our leaders, the main new occupation is "home invader". Are YOU ready for it to happen to you or your family? You'd better be. Don't "ostrich out" and think it can't happen to you. Because it just might.
Hmm, so tell me EYE, how will you "Be ready for it" if you go to the movies and come home to find you front door kicked in?
Is that when the guns come out and you go all Yosemite Sam?
Remember folks, if you take basic precautions the likelihood that your house will be broken into is very very small. Also, if you own a gun, the odds show you're more likely to shoot yourself or a loved one than you are some bad guy trying to do you harm. Just saying.
Be safe an don't give into fear mongers. Just because someone thinks we should all be crouched in our living rooms with a shotgun waiting for someone does not mean you should go along with his fear.
Remember, for every story you read about a house break in, there are thousands of homes that were NOT broken into. Be safe and try not to get shot by The Eye.
"don't give into fear mongers"
Get with the times. Give into peer pressure. Be very afraid.
@The Rolling Eye: Hey, thanks buddy. I needed a good laugh today, and you did not disappoint. ;-)
I resent the left leaning comments concerning guns made by Eye. They are uncalled for and distract from the story and issue.
I meant Rolling Eye's comments about Eye.
OK, Eye. You put your trust in MVPD and whatever deity of your choice. I'll look to Col. Colt for answers.
It's your fault if somebody breaks in your front door. You should have a better door.
Or you should just leave the door open, so the the B&E perp doesn't hurt himself breaking in.
Better yet, just leave all of your valuables out on the lawn and save them the time of ransacking your house.
This PSA is bought to by the MVPD...
Chapacubra? Or Chupacabra? The later lends more effect.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
