Florida law requires a lock on every firearm (or stored in a safe) if there is a child under 12 in the house.

Different laws, different states.

1. Figure that your kid knows, but what about his friend he plays ball with?
2. Kids are easily swayed by others.

Yes, exactly that. I know their bark at the mailman, I know their bark at the neighbor kids out playing, I know their bark at the squirrels and I know their bark when they're really ticked off. They get very agitated and lunge at the door or windows. And it's a mean, serious bark.

you know exactly what i'm talking about! there is a difference in the sound.

i understand not everyone can have a dog, but those who can, should. i have read before where intruders sometimes will bypass a home if it has a dog, just because they don't know whether Fido on the other side of the door is small or large. imagine the suprise of them coming face to face with someone's 140 lb Rottwieler!

A guy high on something, walked into the farm
Owners house one night. Right past her barking biting German Shepard, and giant rott Pitt mix. We found him wandering our farm roads in his truck. Blabbing about tombstones, angels, spiders and other assorted things. Bleeding pretty bad from the dogs. Lady owner didn't have a gun, glad she had the dogs....

Sorry Texaswoodworker, slight error on my part. No at 18 they are old enough to join the military and defend our country, by that time they should have enough of my teaching and preaching to be trusted with a firearm on their own.

I agree with that, we have a male pekinese inside the house and the only time he barks is when something isnt right. Sometimes you have to tell him to shut up or put him in the bathroom like when the directv guy came to install our dish. Other times he wakes us up because a speeder was stopped on the highway in front of the house. Most of the times he barks i get up with a flashlight and my 1911

A barking dog kept a bad guy out of my house several years ago. When I first got married we were living on a small house in a suspect neighborhood while we were buying and renovating our current house.
About 3am one night I woke to my

German Shepherd barking like a lunatic and pawing at the kitchen window.

Despite the large snarling dog some crackhead had my storm window off and was trying to push open the window. I confronted him with a Winchester Model 12, he screamed like a girl. Yelling wrong house, don't shoot he ran off into the night.

From talking to police later a drug dealer had lived in my house with a doberman. They never found the guy but believe he was looking for the former resident. There was a bag of dog treats on the ground, if he got the window open I believe he was going to feed the dog as a distraction.

I moved a short time later. My dog gave me that few extra seconds. I still have two of his descendants. Even the biggest, meanest dog can be quickly taken out by a determined bg. They do give you the few seconds extra notice that can make all the difference.
