    Oh, you'll play dead all right, for a lot longer than one plans.

    I will not comply.

    What a bunch of morons.

    Reminds me of the Illinois State Police website that told women that were about to be raped to vomit on themselves and to pee or poo themselves to gross out the rapist. That was all they had for self defense, nothing about using any weapon whatsoever.

    The far left nutjobs would like everyone to be pacifists and to just roll over and accept whatever abuse the criminals met out. Fighting back is a trait of independence and they cannot have those ideas floating around. You must call 911 and wait for the government to come save you...sheesh.

    Maybe they're expecting your home to be invaded by a bunch of bears. Who knows...

    Personally, I'd rather let the home invaders play dead and just in case they are method actors I'll help 'em prepare as best I can.

    I thought that was Colorado. Either way, bad advice.

    I have no problem with what was offered up, since they specifically stated the advice did not mention firearms, which is its own category of response. All advice for the unarmed sheep.

    Yeah, that's a good point and it does make the whole thing rather humorous. Here's three minutes of dumb stuff you can do so you can fool yourself into believing that you might be prepared if someone invades your home... or you can just be ready to defend yourself with a firearm. One will probably work. One will probably not. Your choice.

    Just have to say, as long as I don't have a heart attack and am still breathing, I'm shooting.

    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns others "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!

    I put a sign on the door saying that I don't have anything valuable so don't rob me at my new place. So far it's worked. I didn't have the sign a few houses back and I got robbed twice. Lol

    Maybe they're advocating population control to thin the heard of morons and anti-gun sheeple? If so, play opossum freely when that tweaker is kicking your door in at 2:00am...we need a lot less liberal voters.

    I have a spare lampshade near my bedside to put on my head and disappear in case my $2200 professionally tuned Saiga-12 that can pump out eight single O buck in 2.1 seconds (96 friggin .30 caliber pellets) happens to jam.

    Everybody needs a backup plan.

    Why not leave a plate of cookies out for them? That will give them the quick energy they need to brutally rape your daughter while slapping her face til she blacks out. And it will help them to hold down your 16 year old son while they are cutting his genitals off in front of the whole family! Make a family day of it!!! EEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    Do you keep a glass of water by your bed to give to the intruders after you give them your pills?

    Good idea. Give them a glass of water afterwards and if they don't spring a leak, they might need more pills :-)

    lol funny.

    Kill'em, rob'em, burn their clothes and IDs. Put the body on ice in bath tub, then place a call to your local Russian mafia and sell the body on the black-market as organ donors are needed.

    Sploops, my dark side came out. Dont wanna come in to my house uninvited for shizzel

    Play dead my ass. I'll be too busy redecorating my house with a fresh coat of red. It'll be fully environmentally conscious, all natural paint, provided by your friendly neighborhood intruder.

    There certainly are situation where pretending to be asleep or "play dead" could work. I know someone who "slept" through a burglary of
    his hotel room. He'd probably have been hurt if he had let the robber know he was awake.

    The advice isn't totally useless, just near useless in too many situation.

    I don't know how many stories I've read here and on the various news stories where the BG is said to have entered through an unlocked
    door.

    Why people remain careless about locking doors is beyond my understanding. LOCK THE DANG DOORS.
