    Another reason I carry

    While spending New Years in the Tampa Bay area with my wife and friends as that is where she is from, we got asked about how it is in Fayetteville / Fort Bragg NC. As we sat there enjoying the beach and the 80 degree weather we got to explaining how bad the area was and that you just don't leave the house after dark unless you want to get shot. After a pretty lengthy discussion about how bad it is here one of our friends looks at my wife and said "oh my god you are a refugee." Anyway as I was sitting at work today I decided to look up the crime statistics for the Fayetteville / Fort Bragg area. Here is what I came up with, Fayetteville's violent crime rate is 122% higher than the national average. The property crime rate is 150% higher than the national average. Fayetteville was at one time ranked 24th in the country in violent crime, and from what I have seen is likely gained a few positions since that information was posted. I'm thinking I might try and apply for asylum down in Tampa based on political reasons. My political stance is that the entire city and Fort Bragg needs to be leveled. That is just another reason why I carry a firearm everywhere I go. Now if I can just use that logic to convince my wife I need more guns.

    Wow, that's pretty bad. I'm surprised you'd want to move to Tampa though. It seems like we have had really bad luck the last couple years with quite a few policemen dying by gunfire. :(

    Yeah I know. Tampa is a whole lot bigger than Fayetteville is and that is where my wife is from.

    I always got the impression that the name "Fayettenam" was well earned. And not simply a play on the military there.
