IF YOU ARE UNARMED, DON'T ADVERTISE IT | 2005-02-12
One of my sisters got very rich and moved into a very high income neighborhood. She then got the fashion from her neighbors that having a gun in the house was a veddy veddy lower clahss attitude.
I pointed out to her that I had worked in prisons and prisoners talked about areas that had guns and places that did not have guns with exactly the same professional detachment that insurance salesmen talk about sales prospects.
A rich neighborhood that was proud it had no weapons was exactly what they were looking for. My sister told me she knew better because her neighbors had told her so.
One day two black thugs walked into her house, beat the hell out of her and her husband, and robbed the place.
Her attitude about guns has changed.
