Suppose some anonymous person called you on the phone and said “Hi! Take my word for it, I’m an impartial researcher taking a poll. Do you or do you not have a lot of cash, jewelry, or negotiable bonds in your home?”
How many people would answer “yes” and make themselves a target for burglary or home invasion?
Let’s not forget, about the only things thieves can steal from you and sell to a fence or on the black market for more than their intrinsic value instead of a dime on the dollar are prescription pain-killers and…firearms. No one should be surprised when gun owners are hesitant to reveal that they have valuable things in their home which would appeal to thieves. I’m not the only one who thinks we gun owners go under-counted. Spare just a few minutes for this informative short read, please.
