we don't have a watch-------------but our area has a crime watch on facebook----ran by some unid'ed deputies who work & live in this area-------where they post arrests ---------and answer questions about crime----------accidents and other things of interest------

the guys who did this crime actually used a crowbar to enter the kitchen door while the mother was getting ready for work--------she heard the noise and walked in living room where her son was watching tv---and knew he didn't make it-----------she took him upstairs and put him in a closet and took the rifle back down and found one in her l.r. trying to take her t.v off the wall---------because his back was to her she didn't want to shoot him -then the other one walked in and told his brother that she had a gun and they ran----she did get off one shot, but did not hit anyone

the one that is still on the run is already out on bail for beating an 82 yr old neighbor last nov

No guns in our house.  I grew up in a house with probably 3 or 4 guns.  My father hunted.  We knew where the guns were but were told at a very early age never to touch them.  They weren't loaded and we were very obedient children and never did go near them.  My father took us target shooting a couple times with the pistol,  That thing was quite heavy.  A BB gun might be handy fot varmits but other than that I don't believe we'll ever have a gun in the house.  We live in a fairly safe area.  There have been home invasions in town but they are mostly in places where drugs are suspected.

Glad to hear that you are taking precautions and being safe.  It seems that crime has been on the rise all over.  It is a shame that we have to worry about these kinds of things.

In Response to Re: DO YOU HAVE A GUN IN YOUR HOUSE? : that's how i have been for 68 yrs and i never thought i would have one-----------but i live alone--and in an area of the county that has very slow response times ------and mostly very slow connections if you call --911---they have to transfer our calls to the precinct------------my son has been trying for years to make me get one-------------and yesterday he didn't give me a choice-----------and in fact the gun i have is my g.s---------and has a slide lock in the trigger mechanism from the mfg, not an add on------------but if i have visitors it will be put away-----tomorrow i'm taking it to his house to practice firing it-----------------

About 3 years ago some police officers checked my condo for safety and proper locks.  They approved of the double dead locks on each door but  insisted that I get a "peep hole" for the front door.  I did a day later!!
But there are glass windows.  If anyone was set on getting in here it would be relatively easy.
