All police officers that I have asked tell us that homeowners need to obtain, and learn how to effectively use, a gun. This is the only way to protect yourself from idiots that are constantly breaking in to homes and businesses. The police force just can't get to your home in time. You need to protect yourself.

I can't find 74400 Cottonwood Circle in Palm Desert on Google map. There is no Cottonwood Circle in Palm Desert that I can find... am I wrong?

It so heart warming to see Whites & "Hispanics" working together for a common goal. Mr. Lasorsa's reccomending a Firearm is in my opinion sound advice. Hispanics currently are resonsible for aproximately 90% of the Felony crime and that number should only grow as more Illegal Aliens are drawn to this Country. VIVA MEHICO!!! VIVA OBAMA!!! P.S. Keep working and paying those Taxes. We have alot of Anchor Babies to support!

Still blaming Bush? Puh-leeze! Give it a rest. You seem to have "forgotten" about Obama's recent amnesty.
