What Examples of Security Theater Have You Encountered?

Daytona955i Re:Oh Sure (1114 comments)

People putting loaded handguns in their homes in the case of a wood-be assailant or robber breaking in. This is not only security theater, it increases the risk you are putting yourself and your family in. Not to mention that in most instances of murder the victim knew the assailant. You're more likely to die of suicide than a robber killing you.
You are more likely to die from a pool that a firearms accident. Also while it's true that most robbers won't try and kill you, having a gun in the house could help prevent against theft, rape or other things. By following a few simple safety measures, Firearms can be quite safe.
