â€œBy putting this decal on your car or home, it tells an intruder that you have a gun and you are going to protect yourself,â€ said Derflinger.
Let me rephrase that:
â€œBy putting this decal on your car or home, it tells an intruder that you have a gun to steal,â€ said Derflinger.
I think I’d rather just donate to the NRA Youth Shooting Programs directly. But if you really like the decals, you could do what I’ve done with my NRA and IHMSA stickers, which is to put them on magnets that can be easily removed if circumstances call for it, such as leaving home for an extended period of time with the car sitting in the driveway, or going into the city and parking for any extended period of time. I’ve never considered it a good idea to advertise the fact that you’re armed, or to help make targeting easier for theft rings.
