    One more reason to carry at home!

    I just found this article. There are alot of gang problems here so it wouldn't suprise me if thats what it turns out to be but.........one more bit of proof that even our homes aren't sacred anymore.

    YAKIMA, Wash. An 18-year-old Yakima man was shot in the face while in his house Saturday night in the 200 block of South Sixth Street, authorities say.

    The man is not a known gang member, and the 11:45 pm. shooting is not believed to be gang-related, Yakima police said in a news release.

    One witness told police of seeing two people in the alley behind the victim's house, then saw one of them shooting at the house before they both ran north and then west.

    The victim was hospitalized for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his mouth, police said.

    Even armed there is not much you can do when they are outside shooting in except take cover as best you can.

    People are always surprised when trouble hits...dirtbags know no boundaries...they respect nothing, and they look for easy, unsuspecting targets.
    People need to arm themselves with 'tool' that they know and have trained with...they need to practice, and make sure that you have your head on a swivel 24/7.

    Isn't it Rule #23? Have a plan to kill everyone you meet?

    Stay armed...stay alert...stay safe!

    There is not much that you can do if someone ambushes you are just shoots into your house.
