Crime-Prevention Yard Sign: ‘Nothing Inside Is Worth Dying For’


You can have the local home security company come out and plant those little yard signs emblazoned with their logos in your front yard, or you can have this sign, which caught our eye today as we were romping across the Internet:


Definitely an attention-getter.

The sign is sold by Ready To Defend, a pro-gun company that offers signs, door mats and home-defense how-tos at their website. Most of what you’ll see is standard cautionary fare (“Beware Of Owner” or “Go Away”), but there’s just something about a sign that has a well-placed grouping on a target to let would-be bad guys know your house isn’t the one they want to mess with.

Of course, we imagine that most people who would stick a sign like this in front of their home would be prepared to back its message up with action, should the need arise.

Oh, and their “Castle Law Enforced Here” sign is pretty cool, too:



Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
