The problem is, these stories never attract wide scale media coverage, so the masses of sheeple continue about their personal held beliefs, obvious to the world around them. Yet another sad tale out of the Kommunist State of Kalifornia, where it's A-ok to die while following the rules, but God help you if you actually want to try and defend yourself.
Interesting story - My finacee' has a married couple that she has known for probably ten years. They are, shall we say, pacifists with left leaning beliefs. When they first met me, they were intrigued by my working in a gun shop part time and had many questions, not the least important was why I felt everyone should have a weapon in their house and be trained to use it. Over a few dinners and get togethers, questions would arise, but seemed to be more from the "well, the belief is that ..." category. They live in an upscale, new yuppie, old school neighborhood where the young social climbers are buying old vintage houses and living the dream. About 2 months ago their house was broken into while they were gone at work. Very little was stolen, though they did lose their plasma that was mounted on the wall and their drawers and closests were gone through. The very same week I get an urgent e-mail about how to improve home security and requests to come do a walk through of their house to suggest changes to keep it from happening again.
Seems like the only times these type of people want to know about the "dark, insidious world" that I live in is when the real world creeps into their little piece of joy and craps all over it.
