Every day, you hear about some BG killing or robbing some place. Here in s.c. it makes the news all the time.Richland county, is getting bad and lexington is not far behind.A lot is gangs shooting and some are robberys.Two young boys went into Zackbe while it was full of people eating and demanded the young girl working there, to hand over the money.She was trying to get the cash door open and the BG was yelling for her to hurry.One of the BGs, shot his hand gun into the ceiling. They left and were caught later on.I guess my point is,Is it safe to go anywhere out with your family anymore? What has gone wrong with people. They are animals. Its good no one was killed, or if a ccp holder was there at the time, there could a dead BG or worse, I know now why I carry. Any where,any time, you can be in harms way. Don,t leave home with out it! You can be caught in a place, where you don,t think this is going to happen.

Sad state of the world, isn't it? I refuse to deprive my family of living life. If we want to go, we go. Someplaces we go keep me more alert than others. This alertness has caused me to act early to avoid a threat numerous times. At least once I can recall it has saved my bacon without a doubt. We'll never know how many times we crossed the street or ducked into store, or didn't park on that side of the mall for nothing, but I'm OK with it. I will feel much better when My CPL arrives and I have more options than flee. (still the preferred tactic, but nobody catches every threat ahead of time)

It's a shame that you cant go into these convenience stores without being afraid that you may be robbed or walk in on a robbery. I feel for the people who have to work there. These stores seem to be a BG magnet.
it's funny if you think about it. I've seen more secure convenience stores and gas stations (bullet resistant glass/plexi) than banks.
What's this button do?
Until the police to citizen ratio hits 1:1, you go on and keep your family safe.
Yeah, it's a shame our kids and their kids won't be able to share the same feelings of relief we had as youngsters. I remember walking into the local country store bare footed as a kid. The only thing I was concerned about was how hot the pavement was. You didn't hear of robberies in stores. Occassionally something would be missing from the barn, but no one got hurt. My grandparents only locked the doors when they traveled on vacation or occassionally if they knew they would be gone for an extended period to town. Hearing of a murder was extremely shocking because it rarely happened. I wish my kids could experience that.
Robbery, murder, larceny, and criminal activity in general has been with us since the dawn of man.
As there have been more people in an area there has been more crime.
Towns and cities grow or die and so does crime & criminals.
Yes there is a lot of violent crime out there but statistically this society is safer now that it was when I was born more than 30 years ago.http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/cvict.htm
We are so saturated with instant news from all across the country almost the instant it happens. These days I think we just hear about every incident that happens all across the country where 30 years ago we may never know of a violent encounter that happens in other regions of the country. We really weren't safer then we just thought we were.

We could say that we won't go into DC but we both feel that we are not going to let politicians, sheeple governments or bad guys dictate where and when we will go places.
Situational awareness has become a big part of my life. I think I can avoid most bad situations by being aware. But since we are all human and make mistakes, I carry my Spyderco with me when venturing in to DC.
fortiter in re, suaviter in modo (resolutely in action, gently in manner).
i guess growing up in NYC has its advantages: . my neighborhood was so dangerous that everyone walked around "condition red" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. as such, my natural instinct is to never assume anywhere is safe, even here in the poconos.
i believe no matter where in the world you go, there are always going to be wolves, stalking the fringes of our herd. luckily, we, the sheepdogs, will be waiting.
You just have to keep your eyes open and be ready for anything. Had the little punk shot into the ceiling in a lot of places around the country, where I used to live for example, he may well have been shot multiple times before the trigger reset.
It's time more bad guys started being ventilated and more good guys got praised by the media for being the good guys. But, I am not holding my breath waiting for that to happen.
