    it is sad that times are so tough & we have these people who go out there & rob & are willing to pull the trigger , what happens when people who really don’t want to go out packing but because times are going to get real crazy out there start taking their own guns out there. the bad guys should take note because they are way out numbered by the good guys. it is to bad that things have to get worst before they get better.
