    WARNING: This House Is Protected....

    I was on a new site today for my job (roofing a house today) and noticed something on the homeowner's side entrance to his garage. On the glass part of the door was a small red sign that read "WARNING: This house is protected by an armed American citizen. Nothing in this house is worth dying for." Seemed to get the point across I think. I'd never seen one before, and was planning on asking the homeowner where he'd aquired it but didn't get a chance before I left the site.

    Anyone see one before or have any? Or better know where I could get one?

    I don't think that I'd put up that kind of a sign. Perhaps just a picture of the last guy who tried to get in...or a picture of his 'chalk outline'.

    Or a sign that warns...
    "Break in and this could be your picture..."(picture of a chalked body shape).

    Seems like you are advertising that you have guns (to steal). They may just case the joint and wait for you to not be home.

    Years ago, my sister's house was broken into.
    I gave her a .38 snubbie. She went to the range, got some instruction, made lots of holes in a silhouette, and hung it on the front door.

    Don't know how effective it was, but it made her feel safer.

    Nope, not for me. Same as no gun related bumper stickers on my vehicles. No need to provide advertisements for thieves.

    Let them find out the hard way.

    If they do, then you can do your part to put some leaded chlorine into the gene pool.

    Well, here's a question to ponder: If an intruder has advanced warning to come prepared to be shot at, do you think that foreknowledge would end up as an advantage in your favor?

    Now someone breaks in and you shoot them. Whether it is a good shooting or not, you are going to be viewed as someone who was just waiting for the opportunity to kill someone. I'll pass on the sign. JMO

    I see a sign like that in one of two ways....possible premeditated murder, and that this house has guns. Both bad. I wouldn't have a sign like that or post it. Kind of like carrying a CCW badge only worse.

    Same thing as putting up a "Beware of Dog" sign. If your dog happens to bite someone, that sign will kill you in court. It proves that you have the knowledge that you're harboring an animal with the propensity to bite. Now you've got not only actual damages to pay, but a good chance of punitive damages also.

    No, but plaintiff's attorneys seeking a "win" will surely paint it that way. Such is the wonderful world of trial law, where truth gets buried for expediency. Same thing with a sign warning felons to go elsewhere. Sad but true, despite being lacking as "proof" of anything.

    I agree with you, but have seen it happen many times. After I retired, I obtained my Private Investigator's license and did many dog bite cases for both parties. The first thing I did was photograph any signs the owner had posted. That's all it took usually. Sadly, most folks put those signs up thinking it will reduce their liability.

    I have come to the conclusion that I am just not smart enough for this forum.

    I don't get it. Somebody puts up a warning sign, either a "You will be shot if you enter this house" or "Beware of dog" sign. A BG approaches the house, sees the sign and knowingly enters the house knowing that there is a definite danger to his well being. He then either gets shot or bitten. Now the BG sues the home owner. How is the home owner liable? The BG was committing a crime, knew the risk and was injured. Some one explain this to me.
