Here's a stupid idea

This law is just pregnant with the possibilities of being used as a club via Unintended Consequences.

It's pretty clear to me that what this stupid cunt, Sue Tibbs, is wanting to do is put a law on the books (always sold as a preventative measure, which it never is) so that yet another law gets broken when the tweaker meth cook gets his kitchen busted, he's facing even more time and fines. Ever more control, in an attempt at looking like the gummint is "doing something," I digress.

That is what it says, "...to willfully fortify an access point into any dwelling, structure, building or other place where a felony offense prohibited by the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Act is being committed, or attempted..." which is specific to those circumstances, and ONLY those. NOT ANY OTHERS!

How it will be actually applied is something else entirely, and only the hopelessly naive would disagree.

Me; I'm really looking to get into some tangential work in this sort of thing within the next couple of years (I'm working some things out, business planning and schemata), as I think people's interest is beginning to get piqued in things such as "panic" rooms, shelters and entire retreats that are hardened against home invasions. Lots of work still to do, and I think ignoring this stupid piece of shit "law" is the best method of dealing with "ideas" from politicians.

This interests me.

And I'm in Kansas, too.

Mark,

If I may ask, do you have a certain philosophy about the issue of bunkers, retreats and the like?

I've little professional mirroring to be had, since most architects are Communists, and think such talk is a good reason to have someone committed to the psychiatric ward. I'd be very interested in what you've got to say.

Email me if you like.

TIA,

No short answer to your very good question but I will get back with you shortly, probably via email -- had a sick kid with whom to deal these past few days. And that offers certain added challenges to this discussion as well.

All of it is on your schedule, sir.

I understand the kid situation. I have one of my own.

For fun with Architecture you've probably already seen these models from Creative Home Engineering, and implementations but they never fail to delight...

Yeah, by other folks, but learning of new suppliers never hurts. Always on the lookout for new, and possibly, better things.

Doing the truly hidden room strikes a fancy for some people. I think my wife likes it; gives her a sense of being a kid again, I think.

I think a good way to think about it is simply as an second discreet entrance to a room.
We were visiting a small castle in Sweden (really small) near my ancestors, and the Squire showed us from the dining room to the living room, two large rooms sharing a common fireplace (back to back like on a common chimney - efficient use of space), one for cooking the other for show/warmth connected by one doorway, but around the corner was a second entrance, not greatly disguised but not immediately noticeable back into the dining room area.

He showed us the door because I asked if there were any secret passages, and he replied, "Vell it's not very secret aktually," and pushed aside a tapestry covered section of wall that was hinged to be a door. I think it even had a door knob but that went unnoticed because of the tapestry.
