We do not lock up our house

I grew up in a small town in which no one locked their doors.  The house I grew up used skeleton keys for the outside doors which are universal.  So, locking the doors wouldn't have done much anyway.


Now that I am all grown up, I have never got into the habit.  I live in a fairly big town.  I live in a nice home. We have nice things. I have lived in all sorts of areas and we have never locked our doors.  People always think that is crazy and talk about people just walking into your home.  I guess I just don't worry about it.  If someone really wants to get to me that bad, a locked door will not stop them.


Is there anyone else that does not lock the doors to their home?

You can't change your locks?

Why would I change locks that I do not use?

That is just crazy. A locked door will deter some people, and the ones who go to kicking it in or what have are giving me time to grab my gun and get into firing stance.

Yes, we always lock our doors.  Always have.  I can't imagine not doing it.

We don't do guns either.  My mind just doesn't work that way.  Bad things can happen at anytime or anywhere, but I don't really worry about it.  The chances just aren't high enough to change my ways.
