I wouldn't be so sure about being safer

Morning Edition, October 4, 2006 · Violent crime is far less common in rural areas than in cities. Rural people are four times less likely to be victims of violent crime. Yet all three school shootings in the past week occurred in rural places.

Yeh, you can never be 100% safe. We've been in this small town for 3 years now and it's nice and quiet. No gangs at the high school, no street gangs in town, no night clubs, no big city problems and no big city close enough to be a spill over problem. Family values are really important in this town and other than a bit of vandalism there's not much crime. Way more churches than bars in town.

Got a good town there stomper. ;-D

My condolences go out to the families and friends of those who were effected by this tragedy and our thoughts and prayers are with you BG, and others effected. It's a tragic time in our society's history when news like this is almost commonplace. Parents who don't care breed kids who don't care and these are the results. There is so little respect shown in today's world that some few kids find this as a way of expressing themselves. With no regard for whom they may be hurting in the process.
