    Being armed may well have saved my life on two occasions, one an apparent attempted robbery and/or carjacking in a parking garage, and the other (just two weeks ago) an attempted carjacking at a traffic light (in a "good part of town"). No shots fired in either case.
    It took me several hours to calm down after the attempted carjacking. Probably didn't help that on my way home on the interstate afterward, there was a four-car pileup in the lane right next to me! But I figured later that it was my lucky day, since I got home well and in one piece.
    I also carry everywhere thats legal.. Most of the time including my home.. My gun is on me quite a bit because I'm usually off some where.. The only place I don't carry now a days is "INTO" my work place.. But I carry on my way there..

    Most these people probably had no time to reach for their weapons had they been armed. Seems like they were probably just drive by type shootings.

    Good thing is the focus is on our mental health system not guns. For once they are looking at the real problem. They were looking for years to get this guy treatment to no avail. One thing that impressed me was the guys mom. For once someone's mother say she wishes it was her son that was dead before any of these people.

    Gotta respect that. She does say he is not at fault that he is insane and could not get help. All reports seem to bear that out. The officer knew the perp and was one of the people trying to get him some treatment. Plenty sad all around.

    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
