last night in a small tiny town call illiopolis http://realestate.yahoo.com/re/neighborhood/search.html?csz=Illiopolis%2CIL near here near decatur IL a house was raided by several teens and occupants inside the house were tied up and demanded of them were guns drugs and money, the teens made off with about six arms, including a modified SKS that holds 40 rounds of ammo and what i believ eis not very smart is that an officer or chief was being interviewed by the decatur news channel and he told them during the interview that the SKS could penetrate police vests, now... i dont think that its a good idea to be telling everyone that, i dont think so because i think that most likely the teens probably dont know all that much about SKS ammunition and if they really dont then now they do and now they will know what they are capable of, they made off the 1,000 rounds of this ammo. this s just another of a billion reasons why certain/most all guns need to be siezed and destroyed,. i see no reasons any type of guns cept maybe...... just maybe.,... .22's and 12 guages and such should be even produced, let alone circulating, i dunno,, so even small farming towns IL is no longer safe anymore, its been getting increasingly common- atleast around here in this farming town and also in surrounding counties- that things like this occur and that there even have been homicides and such that used to occur so infrequently that you couldnt remember when the last time anything like such occured, but now several instances of homicide and such occur here in lincoln, http://realestate.yahoo.com/re/neighborhood/search.html?csz=Lincoln%2CIL i could give examples but they are pretty grim just like any other instances of this would be, no different from any that occur in a city. the crime index of illiopolis shows ot be real low compared ot national average on the above page, but looks like just like with other small towns thats going ot be increased, and the index of her ein lincoln already is damn close to same as the national, i bet that will be jacked up now, and they show lincln to be 20k population, lol thats wayyyyyyy overposted, there might be 3/4 of that, if all the college students are in town, when they are not then there might be 5,000 in town, other than ppl from outside of town during the day, at night town is dead as in like abandoned dead, nothing stirring at all cept at the taverns til 2am, heh dunno why i made this post, i guess just to show another example of what i believe is the media getting too involved and letting info that really shouldnt be known get released, but in this case its not just the media's fault, but maybe it is.. and also to show another example of why most guns and ammunition should be destroyed, asap,.
