The deal is the wedding and funeral were events that had a 100% probability of happening. No putting either one off, except if cold feet happened on the wedding. However the probability of any one person (excluding LEO's and military) being in a self defense situation on a given day is very, very, very small. To equate going to a bar with going to a family members wedding or funeral is laughable. Bars are open every day, weddings and funerals for that particular member of the family is a once in a lifetime event. (maybe not with the wedding)

At any event where we have to go and we can't carry, there are many things we can do to lessen the likelyhood of being caught in a life threatening situation in the rare event it takes place at the same time we happen to be without a gun. Our minds and situational awareness should be the first. Placing ourselves in the best possible spot for quick exit but good oberservation of the event, entrances, exits and such is likely going to be better than having a gun on you. If it is a large event with lots of people, the likelyhood of being in a place that you could successfully use a gun without injury to innocent people is pretty slim as well.
To place one's ability to carry a gun above family in certain situations is just wrong in my view. I certainly won't skip being at my parents bedside when they are dying because the hospital is posted. I certainly don't skip my son's school activities because schools are off limits.
If folks aren't willing to assume some risk to themselves for others benefit I can't see calling them patriots. After all, all former and current members of the military have/are assuming risk to protect the rest of the country. Think about it.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

I do not drink when armed. I never drink away from home--at home is something else entirely. I feel that if I've had a few stiff Jacks, and two hours later some slimeball tries to break in and do my family harm, I would be justified in using deadly force, regardless of my BAC. But I don't press my luck by carrying and drinking, under any circumstances.
