  1. Incredible isn’t it? I mean really, everyday it seems that crime’s are committed here! Pulling a gun on people, especially during the middle of the day?!?! Robbing convenient stores for a few dollars?!?! Shoot these idiots and these incidents will certainly taper off! I mean seriously, conceal carry permits are not that expensive to obtain.
    If you see somebody breaking into your vehicle, shoot their ass! Arm the clerk’s at the different stores, and train them properly how to defend themselves.
