i suppose im braging, not actually but just saying;
i live in north carolina. i moved here 30 yrs ago.
we have concealed and open carry here.
i live in the country and i hear gun fire everyday. i shoot on my own property anytime i feel like it.
the distant gunfire is music to my ears because i know my neighbors are armed and proficient with guns.
we have a very low rate of home invasions here. almost non existant. but ocassional tool shed theft.
