Right, that was the point. Guns, iPods, laptops, cameras, cell phones, 
GPS units, and cash must be 90% of what people steal from homes and 
cars. Of course, one can assume any home has at least 1 of these, but if 
one knows for sure, well ... ------------------------------ Message: 3

This is much preferable to having people break-in while you are at home, 
  so I'd call it a successful deterrence unless it was somehow 
established that the marginal desire to steal the gun motivated the 
decision to break in at all.
