Yes, well, if you are going to be living in the city, you have to
safegaurd your property. If that means a walk-in gun safe built into the
house, that is what it means.

All sorts of things are stolen all the time. That is too bad, but as long
as my things aren't stolen, I don't get too worked up about it.
