    This is only one of about 10 shootings in my town in the last few weeks. Makes me scared to even go outside.

    OMG! How terrible.

    Have they all been home invasion shootings?

    Please be safe and stay alert.

    Thanks ocean. A majority were home invasions. There was also a gang shooting at the mall and the police shot and killed a guy who robbed someone at a motel. The guy who was murdered on New Years is my DH's best friend's BIL. I didn't know him but his sister and her children are friends of mine and it happened only a few miles from me.

    Thanks Ocean, there just seems to be so much death and pain affecting me and those around me lately.

    Here are some links for some of the other shootings in my town, and there are many more. It is very scary, it's a small town with big city crime.

    I have two and they will bite. My landlord wants me to keep them in their kennels but with my DH gone for the next 3 months for work I let them loose. My yard is fenced in and if anyone was to come in the front door I can let the dogs in the back.
    Happy New Years
