    From a biased source. Try something more 'balanced.'

    (Disclaimer, I own guns as well)

    As a resident of Wayne County, where Goldsboro is located, I am really shocked at how bad the city is getting there. The councilmen and the commissoners all seem to think that gangs and crime is not an issue in Goldsboro. They want to maintain this safe and friendly aura that just is not there in Goldsboro anymore. Of course they do this to keep the base residents happy but SJAFB isn't fooled either and have a long list of places that serviceman are told to stay away from in Goldsboro and that list is growing daily.

    Get used to it. The more guns floating around, the more shootings there will be. It's just a matter of simple arithmetic.

    Except... not.... because gun sales have been at record highs for a while now, and yet crime in general, and gun crime in particular, are lower than they have been in decades.

    Once again the facts directly contradict the "feelings" of the gun haters.

    Just read the court records in the Sunday paper. Hardly any jail time is given to the convicted. Most every one is a probation sentence. Why not got on commiting crimes...nothing is going to happen.

    There is a lot of political neglect and jockeying around issues in Goldsboro.

    City government leaders over the past decade have allowed this to happen. Follow the money and the 'big interests' there, and you'll have your answer.

    Wow, this is just getting crazy. I was looking at a site last night and it said GB is ranked 61 nationally for crimes. How did this city slip so fast. In 1993 Money Magazine ranked GB in the top 10 towns in the US and now 9 years later this... Really?

    I too, live in Goldsboro. I stay away from certain areas. However the crime in Goldsboro is crazy and it's only getting worse.
