Because criminals target people in their own homes or yards.
What the anti-rights cultists do not want people to think about is how often crime occurs and how frequently that happens at or near where people live.
Between 2004 and 2008 –
About 1 in 3 violent crimes occurred in or near the victim’s own home.
During this time period almost 1 in 5 violent crimes took place in open areas such as yards, playgrounds, fields, on the street or in other similar locations.
Almost two thirds of all property crimes took place in or near the home of the household members.
The trite and overused saying about preventing crime (avoid bad places) really misses the point when 33% of all violent crime occurs at or near where people live.
Decide for yourselves folks if it makes sense to go armed; not all the attacks occur in the home. People getting into or out of cars at home often don’t pay close attention to what is going on. It is also natural to relax a little once the ‘safety’ of home has been reached. Ever wonder why so many crime victims say “I never saw it coming” ?
Let the antis rage about paranoia, they’ll sling any amount of mud to cover the truth. Crime happens and it often happens where people live.
Updated 6:37 p.m. | Sen. Ted Cruz gathered a group of House conservatives in his office Tuesday night, talking about immigration and House GOP leadership elections slated for after the midterm elections.
The Texas Republican gathered roughly 10 members of the GOP Conference at 8 p.m. Tuesday for a 90-minute session that included candy bars, crackers and soda. Cruz’s office would not give further details, calling the pow-wow a “private meeting.”
By definition; if you know about it; it’s not exactly ‘secret’ is it?
Maybe you’re just butthurt that he didn’t invite you.
