C2 ignition kill switch?

What is the current wisdom on the prefered placement of an ignition kill switch in the electrical system. Is it better to kill one side of the coil,
or starter, etc. to prevent an easy hot wire of the ignition switch. Obviously, the switch itself will be secreted. Thanx- Lib

What the serious do is place a switch in there to short the points to ground. This way you can hot wire all you want on the coil and distributor but it won't start.
The quick and dirty alarm can use a double pole switch there, one side shorting the points, the other side activating a couple of mercury switches to horns/sirens so that if someone jacks it or grabs it with a wrecker, it goes off.
The reality is that anyone who wants it will come by with a flatbed and off it goes, horns blaring or whatever.
Just remember, there are no ballistics test for shot, only bullets.

A kill switch should stop the amatuer thief.
Since i have an electric fuel pump , i have a micro toggle switch hidden very well inside, that interrupts the circuit when thrown.
