    Cool

    Thanks for the headsup.My daughter lives in Alachua and the area is generally free of this type of violence. That said she has her old mans Model 36 and knows how to use it and her house dog is a American Pit Bull Terrier.

    Heres the update:

    Looks like a mentally unstable guy felt he was wronged by some people and began targeting them. All happened within a 3 mile radius.

    Stay safe out there!

    The long, rectangular house with beige siding and black shutters on Southeast 10th Avenue is worn by time. Half a dozen old cars, chairs, empty Old Milwaukee beer cans and exercise equipment were scattered across the front lawn Monday, while laundry hung in the backyard from a line above a barking mocha-colored pit bull.
    This story has it all! Junk cars, beer cans on the ground, laundry on the line, and the ever popular pit bull. Sounds like the perfect citizen.

    Good Lord!! This describes just about every Redneck Villa in my area!

    Stay armed and safe, if possible.
