Somerset Co. & criminals

The writer of the letter “Info aids criminals” (March 13 and TribLIVE.com), who expressed concern about Berlin Borough having only one police officer on duty at a time, seemed to be more worried about criminals being made aware of this fact than about the minimal police force in the borough. Having been born and raised in Somerset County for the first 18 years of my life, I can tell you that everyone in the area, crooks included, already knows about the law-enforcement situation.
However, would-be criminals should also be made aware that Somerset County is not a “gun-free zone.” There are probably more legitimately owned weapons per capita in southern Somerset County than nearly anywhere else in America, and these owners aren't afraid to use them — on wildlife, or on the wilder life that may think crime pays.
And I'm quite sure that criminals don't want to run into a certain 83-year-old resident I know — who happens to have been one of the first Navy SEALs ever and still routinely carries his Navy-issued Colt .45 automatic.
