Very interesting AND politically correct
The United States ranks 3rd in murders throughout the World.
But if you take out Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C. and New Orleans, the United States is 4th from the bottom (in the world) for murders.
These 4 cities also have the toughest gun control laws in the United States.
These 4 cities are all controlled by Democrats.
Rocket Science Anyone?
I doesnt take much research to understand that criminals do not like to "hunt" where their victims are armed. I have seen countless interviews in prisons attesting to that. They KNOW, what the police can, and will do, and that they have an 8o + % chance of surviving an encounter with police. Surviving an encounter with an armed homeowner is WAY less.
Unarmed people can be overpowered easily. The normal human being is not prepared for VIOLENCE or PAIN. Two unarmed criminals in a house with an unarmed homeowner are NOT equal in any way. The homeowner may think he or she will fight to defend their home, but the painful reality is, pain, changes the way you think. Fear makes it worse.
Armed intruders in an armed household will not find it as easy to overpower. THEY may have the advantage of surprise, but the homeowner has the advantage of knowing his house in the dark. Typically.. Intruders do not typically choose houses they know are armed, at least WHILE someone is AT that house.
I watched one interview a few years ago with a thief in prison, and they asked him several questions.. the thing that terrified him the most, was the little old lady that was armed.. believe it or not.. that little old lady is going to be terrified, and she will do things younger people who felt more in control, EVEN if they were scared wouldn't do...
Of course.. Many of them said they didnt mess with houses that had dogs. They targeted, Preferably unarmed homes, no dogs, and something noisy, like an Air Conditioner running.
