I just read the article in the Salisbury Times about their Gang problem. It was a very interesting article. Even though it was a very good and well written article she is behind times, because so many people in the Salisbury area have been commenting on this very subject in the paper for years. That is the way it is, the voice of the common folks are mostly never heard. It is a shame when gangs (who you know are armed) roam Salisbury and honest people have no way of defending their self because of federal and state gun control laws that are really worthless. Honest people are at the mercy of the bad guy and guess what, the bad guy knows this. The problem of gun control and gangs, home invasions, murder, and robbery will soon get much worse. The lawless people will have guns and the honest people will have none. You cannot count on the police because even though they do a good job this problem will soon over whelm them. They are only so many police officers. How are we to defend ourselves? The honest citizen will soon not be allowed to own a firearm, if Obama and Holder get their way, let alone be allowed to carry one. In some towns and states in this country it is legal to carry fire arms and in those states crime is way down. I wonder why. We do not need such as in the old wild west days but we do need to be safe in our homes and walking down the street. What good is the courts? 80% of the time they slap the criminals on the wrist instead of bringing the full weight of the law down on then.
