Bad stuff, close to home
Just found out that two restaurants in my county that we frequent were robbed at gunpoint a little while back (within 4 minutes apart, by the same people) and in a neighboring town that we frequent 2 men were shot while walking down the street, but not believed to be related to another recent shooting. Every time we see these things on TV or in the paper, I tell my wife that these are the reasons I carry. She's been very supportive over the last several months. I'm sure the multiple stories on the news every night about the surrounding area have contributed to the support. Too many bad things happening too close to home.

Same story here in north Florida. I think it is happening all over the nation and I believe it is a direct result of the economy and the unemployment situation.

Head on a swivel!
One of the most dangerous political philosophies afflicting America today is the belief that we can’t allow anyone to suffer the natural consequences of their own stupidity.

I don't disagree with that.

Same thing 'round here, though it has been a bit quieter the past several weeks.
