    I have things inside that are worth dying for so I couldn't put that sign out without making a liar out of myself.

    Personally, I would not.

    I read an article by Ayoob many years ago in which he pointed out how posting a sign like that could show an unsympathetic jury you kind of have a predisposition to looking forward to killing someone given the opportunity.

    Personally, I kind of like the sign and a few others like it. One of my favorites was one posted on a persons rural property stating "Warning, you are now within rifle range!" They have a catchy punchline and puts the bad guy on notice.

    However, as Ayoob pointed out, an unscrupulous prosecutor may want to jump on the chance in an attempt to show an underlying cold blooded personality to your mentality.

    It's just something akin to borrowing trouble and a road I simply would not like to go down if I don't have to.

    Mounting a defense either at the grand jury level or for a trial is going to be expensive enough as it is. Why add to that expense by making your attorney deal with "red herring" issues you don't have to.

    If I ever must shoot someone to defend myself, I want to be clear I had a reluctance to do so. That I had no other choice and was forced by circumstances to use lethal force in defending myself.

    Putting up a sign like "Trespassers will be shot, Survivors will be shot again," or like the one in the above post kind of lets one believe shooting someone is kind of your first option.

    Again, it may be a bogus argument, but why go down that road if you don't have to?

    No. Most BG's know talk is cheap. They ignore no gun signs also.

    In the front yard--No Way
    On the wall in the garage--Hell Yea

    I picked up a few 'alarm company looking' stickers at a gun show that are similar. "This Property Protected By An Armed American Citizen...There Is Nothing Here Worth Dying For". While I like them, they are NOT going on any entrance to my home.

    To tell the truth.....NO. That would be printing in the third degree if you ask me. The heck with warnings.....I want the element of surprise. Truth be known, I'd be wasting my time attempting to thwart burglars with a sign........I'd rather rid the world of malice one step at a time on my own terms.

    No, I wouldn't place that sign out...just as soon as you shoot someone, you've got people armchair quarterbacking your mindset.

    "Your Honor, the defendant planned on killing anyone who stepped in his yard. My client got away with his life, but is now paralyzed from the mouth down. He's a virtual Stephen Hawking..."

    No disrespect intended.

    Okay, maybe in the garage. INSIDE.
