Where is your GUN when you

Where is your GUN when you need it? People need to defend themselves, police cant be everywhere. Especially 2:45 am. Today in Augusta, and surrounding areas, if you are out past dark, you better be packing.

RICHMOND CO

RICHMOND CO VOTER=Correctamundo. You better be packing and going to the shooting range to practice. The way RC is now a days, heck, go packing during the daytime.....Its your constitutional right to do so.............

God Bless the men and women that has signed up to enforce laws but they can't be everywhere. Richmond County has sliced and diced and gutted the RCSO to the bone. 3% cut here, the next year, 2.5% cut there......No pay raises, hiring freezes......barely enough budget to buy equipment and uniforms and vehicles. Cant attract new applicants, cant keep the decent ones we have............Buy your guns and protect your family because the Richmond County govt dont give a crap about your safety and does not support the Sheriff, Fire, animal control, EMS depts.

My husband doesn't drive his

My husband doesn't drive his car with my purse in it- unless I'm there too.

And my purse has WAY more in it than money and lipstick. It's my mobile life support system.

But that's just me.

He wanted water. From a stranger. At 2:45 am. And the driver stopped for him. You try to be a Good Samaritan, and look what happens.
