Three 12 gauge rounds to the head as you doze in your easy chair.
Your 25 year old son is executed at your feet despite surrendering to your killer.

Why not? Because you cannot see yours as anything other than “a safe neighborhood.”
Unless and until our mindset catches up to the reality of criminal predation, we are literally defenseless.
Who then decides whether our loved ones live or die…?
