On another board (I think), this question was asked:
Why do you feel the need to carry at home. They thought it was stupid to do so. Maybe due to the live in a gated community with armed guards (mp5's and desert eagle .50's (sarcasim)) and have bomb shelters as a home.
Well, this happened at 12:30 today. I was at work but came home around 1250 due to seeing alot of police activity coming toward this area (really need to get my scanner fixed)

A woman is dead and three men are in custody after a shooting Friday afternoon in Goshen. According to investigators, it all happened because of an apparent drug deal gone wrong.
The shooting happened around 12:30 just south of Eugene. "We heard a single pop sounded like a small caliber handgun, then we heard, shortly after that, several cop cars go buzzing through the street here," Chris Hallford, a witness, said.
When Oregon State Police officers and Lane County Sheriffs deputies arrived, they found a truck off the road, a bullet hole in the back window and a woman dead inside. Right across the street, they found marijuana growing inside a house.
"At this time, potentially, we don't know for sure, it may have been one of those drug rip-off type scenarios," Russ Burger with the Lane County Sheriff's Office said.
There were three male suspects, two were arrested on scene. Investigators say the third one tried to run away. Officers say he was trying to hide in the bushes when a police airplane overhead spotted him. Authorities quickly handcuffed the suspect and took him into custody.
Goshen Elementary School was under lock down as authorities worked on securing the area. It later re-opened and students went home.
Police say, they'll continue to have the area taped off for at least the next couple of days.
The identities of the victim and the suspects have not been released.
My house is about 1.5 miles from the address given in the first account.
I've called the police, told the police and begged the police to check out some of the places in Goshen and across the street but they will not.
I wouldn't doubt if some of these characters (interested in seeing what they look like, I bet I've seen them around here, including the girl) were part of the thefts that have been going around around here.
And people think that we/I am paranoid. Darn tottin'.
And NO, I will not be run off my land (my home stead). It's mine, the property is mine, and I'm not going to allow these criminals or wussy folks who only advice is to move to make me move off my land.
Sometimes, it's great to feel secure, have someone to depend on, and to feel all fuzzy, that time ends when you go from a child to a man, then it's time to stand up and take control or die trying.
