I've just moved to a nice quiet, upper middle-class home in South Arlington Texas. I came home from a business trip to find a CSI van and 4 police cruisers 2 houses down from me. It was a home invasion, as far as I can tell they were invaded by persons unknown at around 3:00 am. Don't believe that anyone was physically hurt, but the next day they had an alarm system installed and the yard has been lit-up at night. I do hope they've also taken the additional step of arming themselves, a lot can happen in the few minutes it takes the LEO's to get there. Anyway, my family is now asking me to take them to the range to learn to shoot. Pity, it takes something like this to motivate someone. When you see it on TV it's tends to be somehow unreal, but when it's your neighbor, well that's reality slapping you in the face.
