We might be seeing the bottoming out of the crime descent. Perhaps one more year, then maybe a leveling off one or two more years…and then it will pick up steeply. And it will be blamed on us again instead of the creators of the deed.
If you haven’t bought your long guns, do so. Maybe a couple of extra sidearms on the open market. Lots of extra magazines. But above all, buy ammo like there is no tomorrow. And learn to reload too & stock up on reloading supplies.
