I’ve never considered a construction site a target for armed robbers.

No longer.

Usual suspects.

RIP

Very sad, probably drug related yet again. Glad I'm in a rural area but I still carry all the time.

Sadder are some of the comments below such as "The 2nd Amendment strikes again...". Sigh, Poor soulless, mushi brained children.

Construction sites are prime targets for theft of copper/metal, tools or equipment. Also, many construction workers that travel have perdeum money that has been given to them for expenses.

My wife works for one and most of their site supervisors carry where they can, as well as the owner carries. She is armed at the office not only for others, but every once in a while you fire someone for drugs or other violations and you never know when they decide to come back and seek revenge for being terminated.

The Bloomberg/Soros machine has a lot of trolls out there hitting every news story on the web blaming the 2nd Amendment and/or the NRA for every shooting.

Just wondering if the deceased supervisor had an LTC and was unable to carry on the job.

I work on a federal reservation (campus for any PC folks) and can't carry and leave it in my car under threat of termination. Hacks me off but that is one of the consequences for being paid a living wage. Was working there before I had a LTC.

It's beginning to look like anywhere can be a crime scene. No matter if it's a nice area or not. People got to stay alert.

I carry while out.

I carry inside.

No longer do I think having a firearm "near me" is adequate.

Having on me is adequate.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't get all the postings about robberies, murders, or assaults as somehow being something new or different. Regardless of country, state, city or town, or neighborhood, criminals and crazies have been perpetrating crime since time began. Sure, nothing wrong with reminders, but is there anyone on a LTC type forum unaware of the situation or the need for protection? As I said, maybe it's just me, but IMHO, these posts serve no useful purpose that I can see. Now if it is a case of something that would enable a LTC to "improve" their defense strategy or provide "useful" infomation, I'm all for it. But simply posting about a common violent crime, for the sake of just reporting it, is something I don't understand. But hey, I'm old and cranky, so forgive me if you disagree. :cheers2:

Ever since I got my LTC I carry everyday. I live in a rural area with no internet access but even if im just walkin around my house or outside on my property I still carry. I will not enter a business or building that is 30.06/30.07 posted. I don't care what it is. the only exception would be if someone i knew was in the hospital and the hospital was posted. Other than that nope. restaurants, retail businesses, gas stations. Doesn't matter.

I respectfully disagree. There are people who have the mentality "Oh that stuff doesn't happen in real life" or "Well that will never happen to me" or "that only happens in the movies". I think if people actually knew how much crime went on it would change their views a bit... my girlfriend for example use to be like that. but we've been dating for 4 years now and she now no longer leaves her keys in her car when she goes somewhere. always locks the doors on her car. always sleeps with her henry repeater next to her bed. checks and double checks to make sure the doors are locked at night. she still does some things that irk me and seem reckless to me like she siad the other day an elderly couple had a flat tire on the highway so she stopped to help them. I would never do that. for all she knows there could be their son laying down in the back seat with a shotgun ready for an ambush. or how she will walk places sometimes. she says "oh its just 2 blocks away" yeah but all it takes for a BG is 20 feet to sneak up on you. I think its a good thing that people are reporting everyday crimes. not only doesnt it help people with "im immune" mentalities but it also keeps people like me who live in the middle of nowhere up to date on where a lot of the crime is happening. Like I wont be visiting houston anytime soon. or austin. those 2 places seem to have skyrocketing crime rates here lately.

Respectfully, my point was that this is a forum of "informed" individuals, not a forum of individuals who think, "oh that stuff doesn't happen in real life." IOW, threads such as this one are preaching to the choir. In 2015 there were 1.5 million violent crimes in the U.S. That's over 3400 per day. Are some worthy of note to LTC's? Sure, but a vast majority are just the usual crimes that have been happening in locales since time began, and provide no useful information to the LTC. If we posted all or most of them here, Charles would need a lot more server space. It would be a lot more useful, if you are trying to avoid high crime areas to simply Google the area for crime rate, rather than relying on a few posts per day/week on the forum. I don't want to engage in a spat with you, or demean your post in any way, but if you relied on posts here to determine where it is safe and where it is not, I imagine you would now avoid all construction sites. In the end, the members of the forum usually believe that no place is "safe" and that is why they carry. Again, im not trying to offend anyone, just rendering an opinion which members can always disagree with. :cheers2:
