It's probably a multi-national sort of thing. Crime doesn't respect any boundaries or so I hear.
Governments, however, believe that if you make it dang near impossible for the law abiding to own a firearm for self-defense, that crime will magically "disappear."
It's pretty much akin to de-clawing a cat.

Partner, I read your post and then took a ride out and looked at the pastures and thought about it (really I did w/a cheap beer in a can, in hand). With limited experience, I agree that no (and what if I didn't?), this doesn't happen in your area normally. And I'm sorry that it is. I don't have an understanding of your restrictions re., SD but I do understand there are definite limitations. Steel the home and remember, as a baseball player and/or coach, there's always a legitimate reason for that aluminum bat in your hand/car. A short one....for T ball.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?

These types of crimes can happen anywhere. It just hits home when it happens close to where you are.

"But he seemed like such a nice person". These statments are uttered constantly on the evening news.
Folks, it happens everywhere, the best of places, even gated communities, everywhere!
Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".
Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!
