I kept hearing and reading alot of articles in the news about all the gangs, thugs, rapeist and such that were killing defenceless people in New Orleans after the storm.
Especially here in Florida and how many times we've been hit. I thought to myself it really isn't going to matter how much I have prepared and stocked up on water and supppies. If there's no LE to respond and someone with a gun wants to rape/murder your wife/girlfriend and take your stuff, I don't care how well you can take care of your self. A bullet really, really hurts.
