The west was more wild in dime novels than reality. The west was really polite because most folks were armed, time to arm yourself, others around you will be polite.
Desperate people do desperate things in desperate situations.

Fortune favors the bold.
Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.
The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
Yes it is getting scarey everywhere, even in the very rural area I live. It's just not the same even in the last 5 years. More people moving in that don't seem to know or care how they raise their kids. The youth crime is in the paper almost daily. I'm not beating up on youth, I was once one. But I tell you what God bless my parents who kicked our behinds when we needed it. I thank them all the time.
Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. PSALM 144:1
I CLING to my guns and my Bible.
mossberg 500/cruiser is a good one to consider. hope you don't need it.
Be creative. I've got an uncle that's been a motorhead all his life. He bought a house in a pretty rough section of Indiannapolis. While thinking on how to harden his house he remembered that he'd never been near a Briggs & Stratton 3 1/2 horse engine, sitting on the floor, without barking his shins and he'd yell "ouch ******!". So he started collecting old lawn mowers and stripping the motors off and putting them near every window inside his house (I'm not kidding on this). That was his alarm system. He never got to use it since I think the neighbors watched him over time and decided to just leave that one alone.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
Our little town started a Neighborhood Watch with members that patrol our town from 10pm to 2am or 2am to 6am.
We patrol at our own expense use our own cars and use our cell phones to call in any activity that does not seem right to us.
The Sheriff or a lead deputy meets with our group once a month and we share and discuss how to be more effective.
We have bought scanners and Gpss and log miles driven and man hours and personal notes for the next shift.
We do need more involvement.
Drug traffic and crime is down, and being proactive seem better to me than setting in my home waiting for BGs.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
A shotgun and a pistol to carry at all times is the only way to start. You can't have a shotgun on you at all times, and the descriptions of many home invasions leave no time to go grab a shotgun in another room. In addition, get training for both!
Over here in NY the NYPD had to put up with gang initiation day on Easter Sunday netted 54 arrests and four shootings w/three injured.
Chicago had 41 shot in 50 hours. Police were in the middle of talking to the press and shots were fired again.
Theses savages are getting out of hand.
One more step and it's on!
Bloods and Crips? LEO's being murdered?
This garbage is getting out of hand. It's high time to plead / demand from your represetatives tougher laws, tougher sentencing, and judges that aren't Yasgur's Farm rejects, and insist that they give LE the tools and authority to forcefully put an end to this nonsense.
I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
