Portable DieGrinder - BAD Idea

I just noticed at LOWE's hardware an ad for a DeWalt cordless grinder. This is a BAD idea. Just what NO american consumer needs is a powerful, cordless grinder that thieves can take ANYWHERE with them to,
Cut instantly thru one-inch thick steel locks, Cut panels into steel doors for quick access to alarms and locks, Cut through heavy gauge fence, Cut right through automobile doors for quick STEALING, Cut instantly through heavy chains, Cut right through heavy steel cables.
What kind of jackass manufacturers are making such powerful STEALING tools available to the public? We, as a country, are FAR LESS safe when cavalier and heedless manufacturers make such products readily accessible to THIEVES. This is far more dangerous than the tired old canards against guns. These tools are anonymous, get right on to the black market, are SUPER DANGEROUS to have out in the general public.

P.S. I have a Milwaukie cordless Sawsall. Hell with the die grinders. I'll be in your house in less than 1 minutes buy taking a chunk out of your wall.
However I don't steal.

these days. The steel doors (which are not really steel, but tin), are stronger than the old wooden doors. But who cares. If a thief really want to get in, just go thru a wall. What's hard about busting thru between 2 studs, when the wall is nothing but plastic siding with a piece of styrofoam under it, and sheet rock on the inside. These are the same houses that usually self destruct during a tornado, while older homes stay standing and just lose their shingles and window glass. I wouldn't even consider buying one of these new homes. If I were to build a new home, the whole house would be covered with plywood on the studs and foam OVER the plywood, before the siding, and I would not even consider plastic (vinyl) siding. The stuff is ugly for starters, and I doubt any of it will last more than 15 years. I guess the "ugly" part is just my opinion, but it is. I'd rather paint wooden siding, than have to look at that ugly plastic, but If I were to build, I'd probably use Aluminum siding. The Alum siding on my parents home has lasted 30+ years, and still looks great, except for a few dents where the snowblower hit it years ago.

Marad,
Going through a wall next to a locked door was a pretty standard fire fighting technique. That's why they have axes. The door is frequently a strong point.

Grinders don't cause crime, criminals cause crime. You can have my grinder when you pry it from my calloused scarred hands. Support the right to bare arms, except when using a grinder, that's why my hands are scarred. And what about hammers? Why with a hammer you can break a window, you can hit some one on the head and steal their nailset. NAILSETS! You can put someones eye out with one of those! NAILS! Drive a candycoated sinker into a skull, they'll never get it out!

Did your meds run out?
It also would be nice if you included the text you were replying to.
