NardCake "And from whom do you think you are going to "protect" yourself, if not your neighbors. That's what I meant.
Who do you think criminals are?
The vast majority (>80%) of all violent crimes are committed by people with a relationship with the victim (family member, current/former romantic partner, friend/co-worker)
And unless you are a young black male your chances of being the victim of a gang-member or "career criminal" is almost 0.
In fact, the most likely person (by far) to deliberately kill you is yourself.
