:horse::wall::horse: More shootings happened in the Greater Seattle area this evening, but didn't take place within Seattle city limits as many of them, more often than not, do. They were a lot closer to home today in a city south of where my permanent residence is– for those who don't know this kind of thing does not really happen on the Eastside (that's what my area is called, usually in reference to a handful of the cities east of Seattle) and if it does it's hushed and doesn't make the news. It's concerning to say the least because, based on the lack of details from the news, the shootings appeared to be arbitrary with two gunmen (speculation on it being gang related) <http://www.komonews.com/news/local/98688659.html> the state park it took place at was made famous in the 70's by Ted Bundy. Do those of you who live in the smaller "quieter" areas of major metropolitan areas encounter this sort of thing? or are the people of Puget Sound just losing their @#%^(* minds? :willynilly: I am sure this is also exactly the reason most of you carry from day to day– as I shall start doing soon too.
