With the economy in the dumps and crime rising because of the lack of jobs, people are looking into ways to make themselves and their property more secure. People who purchase a home security system are discovering that thieves know how to disable the system. After spending a lot of money on security hardware, you are left with a state-of-the-art system and no property. You have two realistic alternatives to ensure that you will be safe and that no burglar will violate your property, privacy, and person.
The first alternative is to buy a hand gun. There are problems with taking this route to security. The first is the three-day waiting period. If a rash of burglaries are occurring in your area, waiting three days is of little comfort. People never think about buying a gun unless the idea is forced to the front of the thought process. Problem number two is the licensing process to get the permit. All of the skeletons that have been hiding in your closet come tumbling out like bar patrons at last call. The third problem is taking lessons at the firing range, unless you want to shoot the mailbox or your spouse by accident. Finally, any burglar worth his salt will probably find your gun and steal it, leaving you out the purchase price of the weapon and back at square one.
The best home security system ever to cross the mind of mankind is to buy a dog. Studies of incarcerated burglars have shown that a barking dog is the best deterrent against burglaries. People can get any size dog to accomplish the task, but be sure to get a dog that raises a ruckus. While a giant Rottweiler will do the trick, cleaning up the mess after the fateful encounter can be quite a hassle. A small dog can accomplish two things: 1) waking you up to take a golf club to the thug to improve your swing; and 2) alert the entire neighborhood that a miscreant is on the prowl. If you get a dog for home security, your property will be safer and you can improve your golf game.
