We all do what we gotta do and what we feel is right/appropriate for the situation. Personally, I just take offense at people telling me I am the one "at fault" if someone steals my property no matter how many steps/layers of protection I employ for it. I've said it before, and I'll continue to say it - if my property is locked up or hidden from view on my property, it is NOT your property to steal, and if you do, I am not responsible for what you do you with it. My weedeater or chainsaw sitting on my back porch behind my privacy fence (which is padlocked and had BEWARE OF DOG signs) should be as safe as if it is in my shed - which is also padlocked. My gun is the same way. Sitting on the shelf next to my recliner - it's in my house, which is usually locked. And alarmed. But if someone breaks in or goes past my barriers and steals any of these items, they are no longer in my possession and I am NOT liable for what is done with them. My 5 gallon can of gasoline for my generator and lawnmower sits on the back porch - behind previously-mentioned locked privacy fence. If someone steals that gas and leaves it out for their kid to drink - is that my fault? F*** NO! And I won't be guilted into accepting responsibility or shame for it.
