    Statistics

    After talking to a friend of mine and using the "you have smoke detectors/fire extiguishers" comparison as to why I carry , I decided to see what was more likely , a house fire or a violent crime . Found these stats and seems i'm more likely (anyone that is) of having a violent crime perpetrated against them rather than a house fire .


    In 2005, U.S. residents age 12 or older experienced approximately 23 million crimes, according to findings from the National Crime Victimization Survey.
    -- 77% (18.0 million) were property crimes
    -- 22% (5.2 million) were crimes of violence
    -- 1% (227,000) were personal thefts.
    In 2005 for every 1,000 persons age 12 or older, there occurred
    --1 rape or sexual assault
    --1 assault with injury
    --3 robberies
