With the second American Civil War around the corner, personal safety is more paramount than ever. There are many different ways to protect your home from intruders, but none have been proven more successful than the following thirteen.

 

1. Smash all the windows in your home from the outside so it looks like you’ve already been robbed. All the thieves in your neighborhood will assume there’s no more good stuff to steal.

2. Have plans and traps in place to “Home Alone” the shit out of anyone who breaks in.

3. Keep all your valuables on your lawn. No one can steal your belongings by breaking into your home if you have no belongings inside your home.

4. Paint what appears to be the inside of your house on the outside of your door. To the common thief it will appear as though your front door is wide open, and they’ll charge headfirst into a closed door, knocking them unconscious.

5. Have a local wizard cast a protection spell around your home.

6. Seal all your doors and windows with cement. Nobody can enter your home if there’s no way in.

7. Construct a border wall around your property to guarantee that thieves can only cross into your lands legally.

8. Replace your front door with a cardboard cutout of Vin Diesel.

9. Replace your back door with a cardboard cutout of Dwayne Johnson.

10. Replace your windows with several Danny DeVitos. 

11. Sell your home and live out your days on a boat. Merthieves are much easier to fend off than land-thieves.

12. Take all the extra money you have from not having your home broken into and use it to buy a private security force.

13. Guns guns guns guns guns guns guns guns guns.

New Bill to Put Restrictions on Americans’ Purchase and Possession of Guillotines

Congress proposed a bill yesterday that would restrict and further regulate the purchase and possession of guillotines for private American citizens. The controversial bill has split public opinion with half of the nation supporting the bill and half strongly against it.

The National Guillotine Association has been in an uproar since news of the bill got out. Members of the NGA have been slicing up their membership cards in protest, and many have begun to speak out.

“The government has no right to be taking our guillotines away,” said Herb Hopman, a proud guillotine owner and lifelong member of the NGA. “Guillotines are perfectly safe when used properly. Just because a few bad eggs abuse their right to own theirs doesn’t mean it has to be ruined for the rest of us.”

The bill was drafted as a response to the increase of executions being performed by private citizens in public. In the last 2 years there have been a record high number of school executions in which students brought in guillotines and proceeded to enforce capital punishment on their innocent, unsuspecting peers. As of today, there have been a total of 11,945 guillotine related deaths in the US in 2014.

“The thing is, once this happens, it’s never gonna stop,” Hopman continued. “Once the government decides to take away my guillotines, next thing you know I’ll be handing over my medieval torture devices as well. I have a right to these things to protect myself and my family from government tyranny.”

NGA activists have begun holding demonstrations of their own and carrying their guillotines around in public. Naturally this has put more people in favor of the bill.
