Kind of a cream puff article...I mean, it quotes one store owner, and one police department spokesman. 

Then again, it does quote one idiot also:

"There's this concept that if you don't have a gun in your home, your home is unprotected. Well, get a baseball bat or a knife, if you are really concerned about that," says Washington Cease Fire's Ralph Fascitelli.
Really?  That same arguement?  A knife?  Or a baseball bat? 

That's what $50,000 gets you?  What would $100,000 have produced?  'Don't struggle when the rapist shows up, and he'll go easy on you?'
