    Most burglars pick thier target based on

    1) NO one being home
    2) No security system
    3) NO dog
    4) Entry point to house is not visible from the street or poorly lit

Crooks looking to avoid getting shot now know which targets are soft and those who need weapons know where they can steal them.


    I absolutely agree that it was totally assinine to do what they did...first of all...professional burglars LOVE GUNS they can sell guns on the street like candy to babies and make BIG money off them...Professional burglars do not indescriminately run around breaking into buildings and homes...they can spend weeks watching and planning and observing before they make a move...they do not make a move unless they believe its relatively safe, low risk for capture and profitable.
    They dont care if you have guns in your house...they arent going in your house until your not there...so this map just assists everyone with that mindset.

    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
