Today burglars fear the homeowner much more than the police. They know the police cannot shoot them for crimes against property and cannot chase them if they flee in a vehicle. When was the last time you heard of the Supreme Court handing down a ruling in favor of the victim and their property or more authority for the police to apprehend?
Burglars are familiar with how the criminal justice system works to their benefit from slap-on-wrist judges who hand out probation five or six times to sympathetic jurors who view a burglar’s drug addiction, abusive father or alcoholic mother as a valid excuse. They are also aware of jail overcrowding and budget cuts which lessens punishments for their crime.
Hardly a day goes by that a team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, behaviorists, criminologists, etc. aren’t doing Q & A surveys in prisons and jails seeking answers to antisocial behavior.
The most profound and undisputed survey I reviewed was asked of convicted burglars by an FBI behaviorist:
1. Would you B&E (break and enter) a home if you thought it occupied?
A. No — 88 percent (the other 12 percent are hard-core burglars).
2. Would you B&E a home if you knew the owner was home and maybe had a gun?
A. No — 95 percent (the other 5 percent are called cat burglars)
3. Would you B&E a home if you knew the owner was home and did, in fact, have a gun?
A. No — 100 percent (I told you they fear the homeowner).
No other survey I studied in my 27 years of law enforcement in Miami Metro Dade County did I see a 100 percent, not even for a Mother’s Day holiday.

Good to hear. But this would bring us back to the oft-discussed top of do you put a "This house protected by Smith & Wesson" sign on your window. Otherwise the criminal won't know.

That's the way it's supposed to work. There should've also ask them if they would B/E in the home of a declared Brady Buncher, regardless if they were home or not...

These are the correct questions ask to the correct people.
I have considered posting a sign that my home is protected by individuals with firearms (Me, Wife) but I cant get away from wondering if that would actually encourage some criminals because they would want to steal them when we are not home

100% fear an armed home owner more than the police.
I certainly HOPE so. That's the whole point of Castle Doctrine and similar laws allowing wide latitude for action during a home invasion.
They are supposed to fear armed home owners.
An armed society is a polite society.
Dirtbags ought to fear normal citizens.

How about a sign just inside the entrance;
Even better would be an audio recording tripped my motion sensors hooked into the alarm system.If you are in this house uninvited, you are officially notified that the occupants of this house are in fear of their life, and by (insert state castle doctrine law here) you have forfeited your life to any means we see fit. Prepare yourself, and please go stand on the plastic sheeting to your right.
