Re: Carrying on Halloween
To answer your question, Yes I carry on Halloween but not because it's Halloween. (I carry at all times when not at work.)
Now onto a few pointers.
1. Once you get your CCW you'll hopefully calm down a bit as to not draw and shot a kid who scares you. (Drawing your weapon should be done AFTER confirming there is a legitimate threat to your life.)
2. If you are concerned for your safety on Halloween stay with a group. (Criminals usually target loners as they are easier prey than a large group.)
