Neighborhood Watch patrolmen in gated communities
should carry an electronic key card that can lock, but not
unlock, any door they notice happens to have been left
unsecured while they make their rounds. Those of us
who have deliberately left the door *ajar* as bait while
we sit in the darkened
room with a Remington .30-
06 and a night-vision scope will, of course, have opted
out of the service.
Thirty ought six
Hey, wait a minute...what's this got to do with the idea? [normzone, Jul 03 2012]
||Thirty ought six? Not too worried about how many walls you go through?
||Oh, it wouldn't go through MY walls...
||Don't you use armour piercing rounds? What if some day a burglar tries to hide behind your refrigerator?
||Since, per Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the
Crystal Skull, refrigerators are proof against
everything up to and including nuclear weapons, I
guess he's just out of luck.
||I said it wouldn't go through my walls, the innards of
which are composed of reinforced concrete and the
inside-facing surface of which is coated in steel
||"How do you reinforce steel? (Apart from, of course, repeating to it 'You're steel. Yes, you are')"
