    Nope, I carry everywhere I legally can, and I stay out of condition white while in public.

    No. No change in my everyday routine.

    However, where there is no obvious Police or security, I may probably be less likely to attend a well publicized event were a 'Public' official would be present.

    IMO, if an incident were to occur, it would be most likely to be within the first 10 to 20-minutes.

    No. There are crazies everywhere, criminals, possibly al queda who want us dead and hate Americans. I am already prepared for all of that.

    Not really... although I may pay slightly more attention to body language for a while. I mean, if history tells us anything, they’ll be some copycat nut-ball who may try and one-up this thing’.

    No change here. I remain in Grey Man mode as always and remain alert to my surroundings as best I can as always.

    Nope. I carry when I can, where I can. This nut job does no more to change my habits than the unabomber made me fret over what might be in my mailbox.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Glad to hear it. Lone nuts cannot be legislated against(contrary to the mindset of Progressives)and I would agree that awareness/prepardiness is the only logical "defense".

    Nope. Maybe carry with my belt a bit looser since I gained like 8 pounds since Thanksgiving.

    No habits have changed, but I'll tell ya what has changed... The girlfriend finally understand "the gun thing" due to Tuscon's event as well as an event her and I experienced the day after (debating whether or not to post).

    So.. yeah... That's good I guess. It's just sad that it takes events like these to get through to people. On second thought, I retract that happy dance.

    Nope. Not doing a single thing different as a result of one lone crazy person in Arizona.
