    Another "Do you carry" question.

    I was speaking with a friend of mine and the conversation went something like this:

    Friend: Do you carry?

    Me: I can't answer that question.

    Friend: Oh, so it must be a legal thing.

    Me: No, actually it is a tactical thing. If I say yes, I am the first person you shoot. If I say no, I am the first person you rob.

    Friend:
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    If a stranger or not very close acquaintance asked me that question I would probably reply with something like, "do you always wear ladies underwear?" and when they say that's none of your business I'll say "exactly".

    Friend: Do you carry?

    Me: You know, that's a question a lot like asking a lady her age or her weight. You know, a question you just don't ask.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    No spin that I can think of. I OC 98% of the time and no issues.
