snippet:

There is a specter haunting the Hamptons — one that’s turning some of the priciest properties in the country into fortresses equipped with bulletproof glass, weaponry and panic rooms.

“I sleep with a gun underneath my pillow: a Walther PPK/S, the same one James Bond carried,” said John Catsimatidis, owner of Red Apple Group and Gristedes Foods, who has a vacation property in East Quogue. “[My wife] Margo prefers a shotgun. Although, once, she thought she heard something, got the shotgun out and shot through the door.”

The billionaire and his family, like others in the Hamptons, are shaken up over concerns that the vicious Salvadorian gang MS-13 is too close for comfort. In April, members of the gang massacred four young men behind a soccer field in Central Islip. Three months later, a Hampton Bays brothel raided by police was found to be tagged with an MS-13 sign. And in 2016, a man with MS-13 connections broke into a Southampton home and sexually assaulted a woman.

But, all they have to do is call 9-1-1.

I don't like the idea of hiding from anyone. Especially in my home (turf).

“My wife prefers a shotgun.” In other words, break in when I’m not here and get a mouth full of buckshot for your trouble.

Billionaires? With that kind of income and life style they can spend the big bucks and turn their mansions into actual fortresses. That plus bring on a large professional security team to provide in house 24-7-365 world class protection.

Probably loaded with birdshot or whatever it is they use for target practice IF they practice at all. I'm of the opinion that people of wealth really have no idea of how evil others can be. They're used to a life and pointless banter and one-upmanship. I think they'd choke at the last second.
