    My Mother passed before I could convince her to do so. She was on the edge of doing so, before the cancer won....

    My mom doesn't carry yet, but she did purchase a pistol for home defense and is talking about taking the CCW course.

    My mom passed on about 10 years ago, but if she were still around, she wouldn't.

    I didn't vote because you didn't have a "Mom used to Carry" selection...My Mom carried a S&W 38 spl for decades...About a year or so ago, at age 80, she was diagnosed with "Early on Set Alzheimers"...she handed me her revolver and said "Maybe it's best for you to keep this for me from now on"....sad memory for me....

    Voted "No"....Mom is 89, under Hospice care in a Full Health Care facility...I'm not sure if the other residents or the nurses, would find any appreciation if she were to be rolled down the hall in her wheelchair, legs covered in a blanket, and all of a sudden, from under the blanket, whip out her .38 Police Special, that she had for years in the house, and announce she wanted her oxygen levels increased...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    My mom will never carry but I did convince her to take back her Remington 870 Wingmaster 20ga loaded up with 3BK.

    Not exactly the best setup for HD but it's better than nothing.
