Before I had my CHL I never took much notice to the crimes in my area or the specific crimes going on. I just assumed I lived in a good area and didn't worry about it. Since I got my CHL I've paid a little more attention to the happenings in my city and I'm kind of amazed. I do live in a good area comparatively but there is still more crime and home burglaries than I expected.
Anyone else have their eyes opened after getting their CHL or who got the license because their eyes were opened?
