An Overheard Snippet

in Crime, Risk and Safety, Seen and Unseen

Dining tonight at a Thai restaurant near my home I overheard the following conversation at the table beside mine:

HER:  I heard today on the news that the number of middle-class American households that own guns is shocking large!  Isn’t that scary?

HIM: Yes it is!  I sure hope that none of our neighbors have guns!

….

Of course, I didn’t interrupt these strangers’ conversation, but what I wanted to say is: “Are you nuts?!  I very much want all of my neighbors to be well-armed and well-munitioned.  What better security does a neighborhood have against bastard bad-guys?”
