Sorry to hear it, Cyril ...

Ya know I remember when 'muggers' were usually adult petty thieves trying to shake down the unsuspecting passer-by. Probably showing my age with that one, huh?
But, now-a-days it's always some click of juveniles who are wanna be gangsters doing this sort of stuff. Gangsters. That's a laugh. I'd like to see these punks trying to tell the paisans on Murray Hill in Little Italy that they are the 'new generation' of gangsters. They'd scare those kids straight.

If only California didn't 'Californicate' your God given right bear arms. I'm formerly from Ohio - they don't like guns in the hands of their constituents either. Only the cops and the criminals (sometimes that's one in the same) have guns.

Now I live in Arizona. The last of the wild west States where I can (and do, every single day) open carry or carry concealed without a permit. Still, even though it is not necessary, went through the effort to qualify for the CCW anyway. A lawyer friend said that if the unfortunate happens, and I have to shoot, the courts would consider a permit holder who took the class and qualified a more responsible defendant than one who did not.
And, I'm a biker, too. Judges tend not to respect us much.
Must be the chained wallet.
Who knows, maybe if those robes came in leather it'd be different. (Hehe)
Anyway, I think a watch group is an excellent way to help protect yourself and your neighbors. I wish you peace and God bless, Cyril.
