The economy is affecting us all.
Even muggers have to increase their numbers, just to keep up with the cost of mugging.
And the supply of people to mug is down, because no one is going out as much now.
So the mugger has to try to mug richer people.
Mug quality, not quantity.
But rich people these days are all keeping their money in accounts that don't exist due to a Ponzi scheme.
So, mugging is down.
Which means the drug and gun industries are also suffering.
Which means the cost of guns will go down, and it will be easier to afford to protect yourself and your assets, with your new discount gun.
Or, you can become a mugger.
(I hear they're hiring.)
