Protecting Your Home!

Updated on January 3, 2013

Simple Home Protection!

This is worth sharing for simple home protection. When I read this on Facebook, I couldn't believe that I hadn't heard of it before and figured it was worth building a lens to spread the word.

Every day there seems to be a news story about a home invasion or burglary and while we would all feel a lot safer if we could install a home security system, they are expensive. Well, guess what! You probably already have a perfectly great burglar alarm.

All you need do is keep your car keys on your nightstand or close at hand wherever you are. If someone attepts to break in, all you have to do is hit that little "alarm" button that starts your car horn sounding off. If you've ever hit that button by accident, you know that everyone starts looking around to see what's going on.

The same thing happens if your car is sitting in your driveway or garage. If you hit the "panic" button that horn will start honking, the neighbors will all start looking to see where it's coming from and anyone thinking of breaking in is going to take off real quick. The horn will keep honking until you shut it off or the battery goes dead.

This idea will work great if someone tries to mug you in the parking lot too, so carry your keys in your hand when walking through the any parking lot.

Should You Keep A Gun?

While keeping a gun in the home for security is a right that the Constitution gives us, it is not the best solution.

If you have children or there is any chance that a gun could wind up in the wrong hands, you'll want to keep your guns locked up tight and with the guns locked up you probably wouldn't be able to accesss them fast enough to do you any good during a burglary.

Even though you may have the right to have guns in your home, it does not mean that you know how to handle them. Although "common sense" would seem to be enough, there are hundreds of accidental shootings every year. Get proper training for handling and firing firearms!

Check out the laws in your state! A burglary or home invasion does not automatically give you the right to shoot someone. You have to be able to prove that the shooting was in self-defense. You may believe that you have the right to shoot someone who is breaking into your home, but you may be the one who ends up in prison if you do.

When To Call 911

If you hear someone breaking into your home, call 911! Do not think that you can handle it yourself.

Teach your children to call 911 in case of any emergency, including a break-in. Also, have a plan ready for any emergency whether it be a way to get out of the house or find a secure place to hide. Don't wait until something happens to decide that you need a plan. The chances of a break-in happening to you are not that high but it is best to be prepared.

Remember! Call 911 at the first sign of trouble but figure that it will probably take ten to fifteen minutes for police to get to your home. Know what you can do to keep you and your family safe until they arrive.
