A) Never go anywhere as I think bad things happen every where at any time to anyone
B) I would not feel the need to CC because as you said I would only go where a gun would not be needed.
But I do not live by that standard I do not think there is a place on the planet that a gun would never be needed. I have not opted to allow the BG to determine where or when I go where I need to be. So I go where I need to when I need to and I go as prepared as I can be.
In response to the OP's question I would stop the threats to life and property as quickly as I though it was safe and reasonable to do so
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
The OP said, "I went with him simply to cover his backside."
That was what I was referring to. I do not live in a glass bubble, and I realize that a threat can be encountered at any time. That is why I choose to carry.
But I am not going to deliberately put myself into a more dangerous situation so that a friend can pick up alcohol in a bad neighborhood so that I can "cover his backside."
If you find that strange, then I am afraid we will have to agree to disagree.
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
Who is John Galt?
Glad to see that there was only onestatement.Let him get the money and leave
I am not willing to gamble that the BG is going to walk without firing a shot. Too frequently of late have the BGs started shooting/executing witnesses.
To the OP. You do realize that your activities are the same as a BGs? Two individuals approach the cashier, one hangs back looking around, the other distracting the cashier...
