    Lurker saying hello

    Hello everyone,

    I figured I should actually say hello to everyone since I mostly just lurk on the forum.

    I'm from Saginaw, and I am a semi OCer.

    BikeNut is from your area. One HAS to protect themselves in Saginaw, the town with the most violent crimes per capita.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Worse (per capita), says the FBI.

    i grew up in saginaw township (the nice part of saginaw). the city of saginaw was hit like a sledge hammer by crack in the 80's.

    much like baltimore (see below), the city is not too bad if you are white. lots of drug violence, gang violence, and inexplicable violence for peoples retarded conception of disrespect. i have never, anywhere in the US, met such irrational people.

    Hello to you as well. Incoming private message.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    thanks for big welcome everyone.

    Yeah Saginaw is a rough town. It's not big on the murder level, but assaults, arson, home invasion and armed robberies it takes the cake. We held the "most violent city per capita" for 10 hears in a row.

    http://www.mlive.com/news/saginaw/in...9/post_75.html

    and the city does stupid stuff like try to ban dogs that would protect your home.

    It is home however and I try to make the best of it.

    No they have a "dangerous dog ordinance" and they wanted to make it difficult to have up to 10 breeds of dogs. I'll PM you about the story.

    Thanks again everyone. It's nice to feel welcome!
