You know it’s a bad day in crime-world where you watch your buddy go down in gunfire and you just throw your arms up and wait for the police.
Still, this is why we stay armed and prepared. Armed burglary has to be one of the worst ideas out there and we’ve tried repeatedly to urge another line of work. There’s only more law-abiding citizens getting armed and outfitted — that only increases the chance the home you try cracking into will have an armed occupant inside.
But don’t let us warn you. Go see for yourself. We’ll be here… Keeping the score.
