Texas, what more can you say.

Here, owning a gun outside your residence is a criminal offence.

...if she hadn't misspelled "piece" I would have admitted my daughter wrote it. I can understand the error though, knowing how PO'd she was finding her window broken and her Radio/MP3 player missing.

Oh wow, I'm sorry to hear about that! Several years ago somebody broke into my dad's truck and they busted out the driver's side window. They attempted to steal the stereo but apparently got spooked and took off. Then a short while later somebody stole the chrome gas cap off that same truck and scratched the paint on the truck while removing it. It was a classic Chevy step-side truck he had completely restored, including a recent paint job. Nobody had that particular gas cap in stock so he had to special order that and fix the paint damage in addition to the window he had just replaced from the first break-in. My dad was absolutely furious!!

Thanks Dave! It was 3 or 4 years ago if i recall. Doesn't happen to us much in recent years. Been a problem here since i was a kid. Wide open borders down here don't. Gangsters and thugs are sneaking in at an alarming rate. The problem has now finally come to a head with a need for armed forces on our border. Our military installations and billions $$ more going to babysit the massive invasion.

My dads baby moon hubcaps were stolen as soon as they replaced on his truck when I was growing up. Bicycles are stolen a lot as a kid and later years.
