Wild West

 Early this morning Anchorage had it's 9th shooting in 2015. That gives us an average of a shooting every three days. I would think that rivals just about any other town on per capita basis, but I haven't researched it thoroughly.
 It seems like it's always worse in the winter, like maybe it's a symptom of cabin fever. The most common locale is the Mountain View area, but not exclusively. Lately it seems like the wild west.
 At least in Alaska, bad guys aren't the only ones packing heat. Unlike Chicago or New York, law abiding Aaskans can an do pack their choice of weapons that makes them feel safe.
 All you anti gun do-gooders can live in New York or Chicago where only criminals have arms, I'll stay in Alaska and keep my freedoms.
