You are fortunate indeed. My guess is that MS13 or the Crips/Bloods have not set up shop there. That is not a racial comment; it is a gang comment.
The gangs are here, which explains the little bit of violent crime that we do have.
Also, while we are not required by law to own a firearm, many of us do. (I share an office with Mr. Remington and his twin brother shares my den at home.)
