Are you packing heat in the house? They are! (plus the great Obama teleprompter robbery video)

Update: But first this breaking crime news as the Obama Teleprompter, or TOTUS, was stolen along with the van it was riding in! As a result, the President is now reported to be speechless!

Continuing now with the headline story. As the economy continues to limp along the bottom and financial desperation for many continues to rise, more and more people are turning to arming themselves in the event they ever fall victim to a home invasion!

I often have this conversation with people over whether it is necessary or smart to keep a legal gun (rifle or shotgun in New York State) in the house to protect the family against a robbery (a robbery occurs when the family is home).

Few questions can stir up passion like this one does unless you are asking a Long Island, New York Jewish Democrat why they would ever vote for Obama again.

Home invasions are rare, but are becoming a little less rare!

As the economy staggers, unemployment stays sickeningly high and good people become desperate, the rules of society can sometimes be bent.

Add to the mix that the traditional targets for robbery such as convenience stores and fast-food restaurants are becoming better fortified, leading to the bad guys looking for softer targets.

As a heads up to would be robbers however, know that some homes are better to hit than others!
