Robberies increasing in some places

I read a similar piece about Chicago a week ago or so. It seems like maybe having everyone in masks has a down side, who knew?

(If you had told me years ago that I would commonly walk into stores with pistol and a mask on, I would have called BS, but here I am doing it all the time / at least in the stores that require masks.)

Of course, the flip side of that is if I shoot their ass for trying to rob me, I pick up my brass and go home with my fine shooting iron.

I'm wearing a mask, too.

The police can confiscate their filthy corpse. 8-)

Sounds like a good reason to carry a revolver. You don’t have to waste time looking for your brass. :twisted:

I was at the bank drive through yesterday. Saw a customer inside in a ball cap and a bandanna wrapped around his face. I had to do a double take.

Point well taken. At least make the revolver your primary. :D

Heard a blaze of gunfire this morning at 4 and a car drive off. Turns out some knucklehead was shooting at the neighborhood "avoid this house." Got his target in the leg. Don't know if he wore a mask and disinfected his bullets to keep from infecting her, though.

I live in a moderately vibrant neighborhood.
