There is numerous ways to go about this,my suggestions are
Kill switch to fuel pump
Main ignition power kill switch
Battery kill switch etc
There are plenty of write ups that will show you step by step how too on google.
Hmm i didnt think about the fuel pump, the only reason i thought the starter is so when they turn it over it doesnt do anything rather than them cranking it and cranking until they gave up, thus wearing out my starter and batteries, and i didnt want a battery kill because then my pcm has to relearn fuel settings everytime and my radio will reset everytime and thats the most annoying thing in the world

So, like you run it to the the fuel pump in postion 1, then when its flipped, and the circuit is activated, it will sound the horn as long as the truck is cranking. then, you wire your Big A$$ train horns into that circuit. I guess then you would have to worry about a cleaning bill for the seats. All though, you then would have a DNA sample...... """"heading to garage to see what wires I have laying around""""
Hmm that would be very interesting, if i wasnt wiring illiterate i might attempt something like that that would be like them turning on the alarm themselves

Well i dont have the full blown train horns but i have the wolo road warrior which is a little louder and more surprising than an oem horn which would be enough to scare the crap out of of the j-hole stealing my truck
