Recent events reveal that we are all at risk when we go out in major cities world wide.

Major cities don't have much to offer anyway.

Just stay away and you'll be fine... with an improved quality of life.

Yes. I am a tad worried of the shape Boston will be in for my first visit there this coming week.

How about just minding your own business and staying away from rallies?

That seems to work fine for me.

Your chances of being shot are thousands of times greater in the parking lot of Walmart, McDonald`s, etc. You can lose your life here if someone doesn`t like the way you`re driving. We don`t mind as long as the shooter isn`t an illegal or a fake Muslim (ISIS).

The chances of being shot are thousands of times greater in a bad neighborhood, than in any Walmart, or McDonalds parking lot.

The truth is that people don't mind one gangbanger killing another one.

As long as you stay of of the bad neighborhoods, and don't sell/buy drugs, your chances of being shot are almost nil.

In this country, if you are alone and outnumbered, don't say you are pro-democracy, pro-freedom, and pro-Trump.

I feel safe living in Texas. Many, many regular citizens conceal carry here.
