Gun real or toy

A gun is a weapon, it’s purpose is to hurt or kill. A gun is not for looks nor for play. My point if you are playing with a gun real or otherwise you are perceived as a threat and will be treated accordingly. Long gone are the days were a child, even at 12 years old, holding a toy gun will automatically be perceived as a toy only and therefore no threat. This has no regard to color of skin, just a fact of living today. That being said, do your children have toy guns, BB guns, or air rifles? And as such do you allow them to play with them on public grounds? I would hope as a responsible parent you would have said – no.

Seems some catastrophes with children could have been reverted with just a simple – no.


Celebratory Gunfire 2015

As we approach another New Year’s Eve, remember that celebratory gunfire is illegal, irresponsible, unsafe, and not needed. It is not a toy but a tool for defense. Let’s keep it that way.

To demonstrate go outside with a bunch of friends standing together and throw a reasonable size rock straight up into the air – who do you think the rock will hit on it’s way down?

Spread the word.


Big Boxes next to trash receptacles

Just a friendly reminder that those big boxes or packages should not just be left sitting beside the alley 300 gallon trash receptacles or left sitting next to your 75 gallon individual family receptacles, please break them down appropriately and if possible place inside the trash receptacle. Additionally they are not to be used as additional trash holdings next to the receptacles.

Ideally since these boxes are cardboard, why not break them down and include them in your bi-weekly recyclables.

Finally leaving these big boxes or packages that identify expensive items received or given for Christmas, makes our community homes a potential target for burglary regardless if the item was from your home or not. Please be responsible.


Kill Your Local Heroin Dealer!

Kill Your Local Heroin Dealer!

Well if only we could! But seriously, you can make a change. Observe, document, report, followup. Be safe and keep on it! Just one heroin house on your street will increase the crime element in your community 3-fold. Let’s knock them out by networking, engaging and not giving up! #TakeBackYOURCommunity.


Deputy in Pike County that shot his neighbor while drinking

Figured it needs to be said…regarding Deputy in Pike County that shot his neighbor while drinking… just goes to show that even a person trained with gun handling, licensed to carry, and trained with gun safety and procedure, and an upstanding citizen of the community can still make a stupid mistake based on drinking or emotions. This gun regulation issue will not go away quickly; point is that even tougher regulations, stricter application licenses, etc will not stop bad decisions, stupidity, anger, emotion, or mental competency.
