Crime and violence


As a former resident of Iron Mountain, I am deeply saddened that crime and violence in the area has escalated to a point that Mr. Schable feels the need to carry a gun.

I shudder to think of what might happen if I should walk the streets in the area. Muggings, drive by shootings, teenagers on a drug induced rampage.

In the future perhaps I should avoid going ‘back home,’ or at the least wear body armor and carry a piece myself. Better idea, steer clear of anyone ‘carrying.’ I never know when one of them may become agitated and use their weapon.
