Thanks everyone, my wife is now able to stay in the house alone with the grand kids parts of most days. Things are getting better. Judge refused a bond reduction for the one they have in jail. DNA still not back on the second guy.
Since my wife agreed to let me open carry in the restaurant, 3 idiots have come in hard and fast and froze in their tracks when they saw a Sig Sauer P320 M17 on my hip and exited just as quickly as they entered. Back up is a 12 inch blade no one wants across their throat.
There is a cure for that sort of behavior. I don't think jail-time is it.
Home-carry for sure. Keep a few things scattered around the house...safe from kids, but quick to grab in case of emergency..
So sorry it happened. I hope the cops make an impression on those guys. Hope family is okay...
I can’t share details, but I had a nutball come after my spouse and family some years ago. Local L.E. And U.S. Marshals were great! But, frankly everyone has to be their own first responder, if you know what I mean.
