2020 and 2021 saw levels of civil unrest that have not seen a precedent in this country since perhaps the 1960s. Both sides of the political spectrum have engaged in riots, looting, and even direct assaults on the government buildings of the United States. If you don’t feel entirely safe in your own home, no one can blame you.
Thankfully, there are steps you can take to ensure your home safety. This article will walk you through how to make your home safer by walking you through a few great home safety tips.
1. Store Your Guns Right
If you care about home defense, you most likely already have guns. But have you stored your guns correctly?
We recommend storing your gun in a gun box separate from your ammo but in an easily accessible location. You don’t want your children accidentally finding and firing guns.
You also don’t want visitors to know where your guns are. While you may trust your friends with your guns, you don’t know wh they might tell that information to. Perhaps they mention it in passing to their friends at the bar. . . and the local criminal is listening in.
2. Rehearse For Home Invasion
One of the most important things you can do to keep your home and family safe is to have a plan just in case a home invasion takes place. Rehearse for a home invasion with your family — let them know exactly where they should go and exactly which measures they should take place.
You should know that it’s best to let a criminal come to you than to go looking for them. Install yourself at the top of your stairs, or in your room, with your gun at the ready. You know your house better than them, so if you do this, you give yourself an advantage.
3. Install a Window Grill
Optics play a huge part in defending yourself against crime. If you’re worried about burglars, it could be helpful to know that they’re probably not seeking you out; specifically, they’re seeking out houses that are easy to invade. If they see that you’ve put effort into your home security, they’ll most likely pack up and pick another house.
Installing a Window Grill is a great way to show you care about home safety. It’ll give potential burglars no options for breaking in your windows and taking your things.
The best window grills out there can take away the danger of getting your house broken into, as well as making sure you get proper light and ventilation.
Home Safety is Important
Feeling safe at home is important. In these unrestful times, no one can blame you for making home safety a priority. Make sure that you store your guns in the correct place, rehearse for a home invasion, and install a window grill, and you’re far more likely to feel as though you have a safe home.
