I kinda like it so much I made a few extras.

Now that is a very unique idea i like it might use it myself
So what do you think that yur old lady SO will think of that, nothing inside, her, is worth dying for? Or your kidz? Pretty narrow minded POV for an armed arse haole.
CarryOK, your looking at it from the wrong perspective. It's my warning sign to a would be...saying there is nothing inside you want, thats worth dying for.
I tried printing them, but the ink fades quickly and you have to tape it to the window. So I had these vinyl made up. Looks much nicer just stuck to the glass.
I don't know the state of Castle Doctrine in Wisconsin, so take this next with a grain of salt.
It seems to me that such a sign might be a little dangerous in the event one does really shoot someone.
Prosecutor: "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, as you have seen, the defendant was so hard-hearted he was willing to kill for anything--nothing inside this house is worth dying for said the sign. A radio, a TV, a few dollars cash, a stick of gum were enough to kill a man. The defendant was so set on this he had vinyl signs made, not just a print-out from his computer, but spent the money to make custom vinyl signs. Sure, he says it was self-defense. Yet, those signs say something else entirely."
Could also be a defense as a warning sign. You enter with ill intent at your own risk. Not much different than any other protected by gun signs. I just chose to have a custom sign made up.

The "nothing in this house" angle applies lethal force to protecting property. The sign that says "this home protected by..." can be construed to mean protecting people.
Also, the sign that says "this truck protected by..." implies lethal force for protecting property--truck and contents. Such a sign has the same liability as the "nothing in this house..." sign. Just because other signs used the same idea does not mean the latest sign misses liability by repetition.
A safer alternative might be a sign that says, "This family protected by..." The bad guys would get the necessary idea without the liability. Such as it is. Personally, in the event of a jury trial for a righteous shooting, I want as much advantage on my side, and as little advantage on the prosecutor's side as possible. Of course, in a pro-defense jurisdiction, with a pro-defense prosecutor, it might not be an issue at all. In other jurisdictions, it might just supply the prosecutor with another nail.

i agree with citizen, signs are nice but give warning. i don't want them to get a warning, i want them to be surprised.
I'm not a lawyer but I would imagine that something like that might be a "reasonable argument." At least just as reasonable as the argument quoted above.
That's basically the intent I have. The way I see it, if you got NOTICE, which has a legal basis, and you still followed through with your ill intent. Then you got no grounds for any kind of defense, countersuit, or any legal basis against me. Kind of like a No Trespassing sign. If no sign, then pretty hard to prosecute. But if posted, then it's basically an automatic fine.

I have a Swede guarding my house 24/7. His name is Iver Johnson. When he is on vacation his two buddies Smith & Wesson take over.

I'll take the judging! I think people are getting too caught up in what someone else may think instead of looking at it from a realistic standpoint.

I've often considered open carrying a kitten instead of my trusty .45. Hmmmmm, maybe not. We had one we called "Hit & Run" You can guess why. Dang it, but they are fast.
Just wanted to mention that it is my experience that you cannot baptize a cat, no matter how hard you try.
