Hello all I'm New to the forums, I fled here because a different ruger forum seemed to be a bit clicky and uninformative as well as they tend to censor anything they disagree with. Anyway, I'm wondering if other Iowa user's are here and at all worried with the major uptick in abductions and kidnappings in our great cornfield. People around me seem way less concerned with the missing persons this summer than myself. I'm wondering if I'm over thinking this thing. Maybe I don't need 31 rds and a big boker on me all the time? Maybe I'm the only sane person I know as I'm the only person changing my habits and staying extra vigilante in public. doesn't anyone else see a possible link between the ridiculous amount of Spanish speaking ppl in North iowa and the insane amount of kidnappings? Yes anyone can kidnap anyone else. Before we whip out our racist claims can we at least have a real discussion about immigrants and crime, I know libs have fake stats that say otherwise but I live in reality. How can we spot the type of person who commits these atrocities before it's to late? What if anything can anyone of us do to ensure the safety of our loved ones, especially the ones that can not or outright refuse to go armed each day? I can't follow everyone to work everyday and make sure they get to and from the car safely and even if I could that's insane. In my city this is just another on a list of potential dangers. We have a lot of methheads and they do a lot of stabbing and shooting around here. We have a lot of young black youth rocketed here out of their natural habitat by the section 8 program, yes they are having trouble assimilating, they still like to shoot stab Rob each other as well as stranger's when they are not selling drugs or standing around a car catterwalling like syphilitic howler monkeys with the bass up loud. We also have an anemic pd that will bust up teenage booze parties but rarely do they engage violent adult offenders or partake in busts at meth or come houses and we have heroin coming into our town. Basically it's your average hellhole who's educated or working population is fleeing and the trash is flooding in by the escalade load.
