There have been several violent mugging's at North Park mall in Dallas over the past several weeks and my wife and her friend want to go there to shop. So I have been drafted to provide an armed escort for them. What I have noticed so far, zero additional police and security patrols that were promised. People not paying attention to there surroundings at all. The main point of this was my wife wanted me armed due to security concerns. That is a first, she has mainly been "eh, whatever you want to do".
