Why do people choose to put themselves in danger? If you live in a large city, that's exactly what youre doing.
I would agree with the general sentiment of that, I have said before that if I lived in an area where I actually thought I would need to be armed, I'd move. I'd still be armed, but I wouldn't live where I expected to need it.
Or that I choose to wreck trucks by living where deer stand in the road.
That's a good point, but if hitting deer had a high probability of killing me, I'd move away from them too!
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
