    The body count from murder is up to at least 6 in the last 6 years within 10 miles of my home. I suspect there are murders I didn’t see reported. I think all of these murders have been at the residence of the victims.

    Several local ranges offer self-defense courses. Make sure your home and loved ones are secure.
