It seems people still have not heard of gun safes,alarm systems,intruder prevention hardware,hidden surveillance cams and other anti intrusion systems.

The worst part is those guns taken now possibly on the streets of Columbia or some other nearby city.

If I lived in El Chaparral, I'd be heavily armed, too. Yet another part of town that's gone to pot over the past decade.
