Dang! My whole post disappeared! I’ll try to re-create it.
Around here, the County Sheriff’s Deputies ARE my neighbors! Along with a bunch of State cops, Arizona Rangers, Border Patrol, Forest Service (to include Forest Service Law Enforcement), town cops, current and former/retired military, as well. As for the old folks, well they’re almost ALL armed, as well (and know how to use them.) We look after our neighbors in these parts. Anything suspicious happens, EVERYONE knows about it in short order.
Anyone STUPID enough to try to break into an “unoccupied” home will likely NOT last past the first attempt at their “B and E”. The only other “unoccupied” property is BLM or other “raw” land. By that, I mean NO water (unless someone has a drill rig and can drill down 400 feet and hopefully hit water), NO shelter, and No food (unless they have the knowledge and skills/equipment to hunt rabbits and forage mesquite “beans”, along with the means to cook them) just LOTS of mesquite, various types of cactus, grasses, and noxious weeds (tumbleweeds and silver nightshade being the most prevalent.) Good luck with that.
