Not So Paranoid After All

Tonight is the first time since I've lived in this home we've locked our doors. I'm regularly accused by anti-gun advocates of being paranoid and more of a danger to myself and family by owning guns.

Tonight, I'm betting everyone in the county who DOESN'T own a gun presently, wishes they did. 
 CHARLESTON (JG-TC) — Two people from Windsor reportedly involved in a shooting in Southern Illinois were thought to be in Coles County on Tuesday.
 Two convicted sex offenders got in a shootout and stole a car.  Not in the report is the latest information that they broke into a rural home, attacked the owner and stole a different car not more than a few miles away from my home.

So tonight we have all the doors locked and a firearm w/in arms reach.

The closest town doesn't even have a police force, instead relying on County and State. 

I doubt anything will happen and the scum are probably long gone but I'll be damned if I take the risk of NOT being prepared.

Learn a lesson from this: no place is immune from criminals. Even isolated places can have fugitives and dangerous recluses.
While you may have nothing to fear from the local people, outsiders can wonder in.

I know how you feel. I keep my Glock 22 loaded, cocked and ready beside my bed. I keep my Jericho .40 beside my chair (mostly retired these days so home a lot) for during the day. One of 'em goes with me in the car door pocket thingy (being a southpaw can be an advantage sometimes) when I leave the house.

I have a cop and a constable living on my block and there's another cop who lives in the same small subdivision but we have had 5 daylight burglaries in the last couple of years plus a couple of nighttime break-ins - one across the street 2 doors down from where the constable's cruiser was parked. Living near the part of the city that would once have been called "n****r town" I keep expect to hear about that quaint pastime of beating the snot outta old white men happening here. Hasn't yet - at least not so the news hawks would admit it - but I figure it's only a matter of time. Thinking about having a sign made to put in the front yard "This house protected by Glock (with a silhouette of one) Savage (with a silhouette of a 12 gau. pump) and FN Herstal (with a silhouette of my FNAR .308)." Damned glad Texas has castle law.
