Kind of puts a hole in the "more likely to kill you kid or his friends"
though. I haven't been able to find a statistic for people killed by
gun, yet, but I suspect that the number is vanishingly small.
True, but people are injured by all sorts of odd things, including stairs,
bathtubs, and bowling balls and ball-point pens. I can't get this
peice of crap to launch Acrobat Reader for some reason, so at the moment,
I can't get at the CDC statistics, but the bottom line is that guns simply
aren't particularly dangerous _to_their_owners_, and what danger there is
goes down dramatically with the application of a little common sense.
And anyone who tells you different is underinformed, dishonest, or both.
how many shootings does it take to bring back any of the dead drowning
How many accidental knife related injuries were there?
Should we ban all knives?
How many twisted ankles were there?
Should we ban walking?
Ich habe keine Ahnung was das bedeutet, oder vielleicht doch?
Dogs aren't the be-all and end-all of home security, but homes with dogs
(large or small) tend to get burglarized much less often than homes
without dogs. All other things being equal, it's preferable to a thief
to break into a house without a dog compared to a house with a dog.

Neither are alarms.
And very few crims are stupid enough
to try it with a large dog like an Alsatian.
Which might just be why its an extremely
effective alternative to an alarm system.
Generally all you need to do is get the crim to decide that
one of the neighbour's houses is an easier/safer target.
There arent many crims stupid enough to try
stealing a car with an Alsatian inside either.
When you get a free pre-wire, you are not getting anything more than the
minimum. It takes us a minimum of 3 days and sometimes as long as 5 days to
properly pre-wire a new house. If someone is going to commit to that much
time, they can not do it for free. Many companies will wire the doors,
keypad, siren, phone and power, but that is just a small portion of what
should be protected and provided for in a pre-wire.
Wouldnt happen with mine. Mine did get run over by one of the
neighbour's cars, came around the side of the house looking
pretty hyped up. It was never very clear exactly what happened
to him, no one saw what happened. He was one for chasing cars.
Hilarious watching him whenever that particular car went
down the street after that, he was determined to kill it.
What happens when you go on vacation or away for a long weekend and have
the dog cared for elsewhere?
Or are you the type who leaves his dog at home all alone for extended
periods and have someone stop by once a day to walk and feed it?
If the dog is in the car, who is detering the thieves at your house?
I dont, I get someone to check on the dog in my house.
Yep, and there is no need to walk it for that length of time.
No need to feed it either. I use the big 20lb paper sacks of dried
dog food, just slash the sack, leave it lying on the floor and let
the dog help himself as required. And I do that even when home.
The dog just needs to be able to get out of the house for
a piss and a crap once a day, in the yard which he uses
when I am not away. I choose to not let him get out there
by himself, just because thats a bit of a risk with neighbours
kids coming over the fence for their ball etc.
Like I said originally, thats one obvious downside.
I never claimed its a perfect approach, just pointed
out the stupiditys in what was posted at the top.
