Give me a break.

99% of everybody goes through life like that and they're never a victim.
This isn't Somalia.
Being prepared is one thing, "you WILL be a victim." is quite another.
We measure violent crime in X per 100,000 numbers and "X" is a small number. In 2011, it was about 386 per 100,000 people. That's a 0.38% chance.
Considering that a SIGNIFICANT amount of that violence was gang/drug related and a significant percent more isolated to "trouble" areas, we're a long ways from "you WILL be a victim" nonsense.

It's your life pal and since you don't owe me any money I really don't care if you see tomorrow.
Odds are also small you will be in a car crash BUT I wear a seatbelt.
Odds are also small your house won't burn down BUT I have homeowners insurance.

Play the odds sport, Me? I cover my bases.
