If you use ideas like these, be aware, criminals know how to read too. If you are away from your home for any length of time, then they have time to search. Decoys tend to work. If you have a gun safe, they will concentrate on it. Those bookshelf things you can buy pre-made, too often stand out depending on the room décor (just like the thing about book spines being the type of book for the room they are used in. Years ago, my grandfather built hideaways into base boards, hidden compartments in the bottoms of furniture, and used a wall safe to deflect people.

I like a lot these ideas! My father is a policeman and he has always kept his guns in secret places. I will send him this article because I am sure that he will be interested in it especially now when he has curious grand children. Regards!

Pardon me if I step on someones toes, but you guys are going about this all wrong. If you are intent on hiding weapons from burglars first you must harden the target by using three and possibly four rings of defence depending how strong the perceived threat is. First one should harden the outside doors and create a safe room. One item that should not be overlooked is preventing window entry by safety bars and or planting foliage with thorns below them. Passive infrared detector outside with audible alarms and strobe lights that awake the neighborhood. Some of the ideas within this post are very usable, but the idea is not to become a victim.Many people do not understand the psychological
toll that a home invasion may result in the taking of a life,hopefully not yours or someone near you.”Been there done that and bought the T-shirt”. To sum it up prevention is always the best plan of action, backed up with a take no prisoners attitude.

There are several decent ideas here, but if you aren’t a handyman like myself, I settled on a secret coat hook. Works like a fully functional coat hook that I keep near the door, but it opens up to a hidden box that is cut into the wall. Pretty cool. I bought it online from http://www.woodcrafters316.com

The guy in the video is a complete moron that couldn’t be anymore wrong with his very first sentence. The “government” didn’t come in during Katrina and take your guns. The idiots that where shooting at the military men and women doing everything they could to save you from that crap hole did take your guns however. Because for some reason Katrina survivors cried for help but once we came we got shot at. SO for our protection and your protection YES we did seize your guns. If you would have thought before shooting at the people there to save you then you would have still had your guns. Thanks for being an idiot.

Seems there was this elderly lady, that when the cops came to her house to check on her after Katrina, she mentioned having a gun for protection.
They tackled her in her own home and demanded it.
In a later court case, the judge decided the police were wrong and had to return the gun. They say they cannot find it.
It happened. And not just to this one lady, the very chief of police said in public, “you will not be armed” and he meant the general populace, not the criminal element.

in the false bottom of a fake or dead houseplant. or a bonus size box of tampons in the bathroom cabinet. or under a footed dresser in the bedroom. or in the garage in a large container of pesticide. we have no small children and do not have guests in our home.

Hide weapons in your home from the government? The badges bring in dogs trained to locate explosives/gunpowder, it will take about 20 seconds for them to find your arsenal.

guess i’m not the best sorce for info , but I’ve been in a few drug raides an i’m still free, and i’ve changed my ways abit … now I’m a surviverlist. (have been for 60 years) but a bag , like a sock, filled with coffie grounds or red peppers, be sure to wet it a little an rub it all over your ammo an guns an around the area an other places in the area this seems to throw them off the scent really don’t know if it works on gun powder but you get the pitcher , find some thing offendsive to a dog with a super sence of smell but not to draw attn. to anyone else. put it in differnt rooms ‘, not to pin point one place well it worked for me , I had guns an stuff in the same place.

One thing to do if you’re trying to throw off a K-9 search would be to sprinkle powdered Cayenne Pepper all around. If you could get your hands on CS powder, that would be better. Otherwise, store your weapons cache away from your house. Stash your weapons and ammo in waterproof containers, or PVC pipe, and bury it underground. You don’t even have to go that deep. Just remember to camouflage the area so it isn’t evident that the dirt has been disturbed.

The tip is good in the video but the stereo type is not so great. Skip the the song with the mention of Walmart and “to make them Fill good” makes me FEEL bad. Let’s not throw fuel on the libs fire to slander the patriot movement. Just sayin.

The title of the video is ridiculous not to mention disrespectful to people who live in Countries that are actually run by a tyrannical Government. The Government have many flaws but they are no where close to being tyrannical. If they were, people wouldn’t get to enjoy publically criticizing them.
Tim, it’s highly doubt that a song in a video about hiding guns from the Government is going to throw fuel on the libs fire (by the way no all of them slander the patriot movement. Some no doubt own guns themselves). I’m sure they have better things to do. Besides, what the video is suggesting is against the law so they would be the least of patriot movement’s problems.
