Like so many things today rights are taken to extreme. Theres an arguement around every corner. Theres no wrong in America unles you don't agree with me. Smoking, if you dont smoke then most don't want anyone smoking around them. What kills more poeple, Cancer or guns? alcohol or guns? Why are these still legal. I have yet to figure this out. I know that all cancer is from cigarettes and all drunks have not killed someone. How many people carry a gun and have not killed anyone. Are we responsible enough to smoke, drink or carry a gun? Havent seen any qualifications to drink yet.(except age).
As for family or friends, only a select few know I carry. C.A.N.T. Is the best policy. If you are with them and "need" to defend yourself (or them) kind of explains itself. Always remember what has been said over and over on this link. This is not an arguement you will win.
Pick your battles you CAN win with the people that make the difference (politicians) for you to carry, drink, smoke ect.....
Just how I feel.

Why do I carry? For all lawful purposes. Because I hold primary responsibility for my own safety and security. Because I refuse to be victimized. And because I have sworn to protect my loved ones 'til my dying breath, in the face of violence, no matter the cost to the assailant, even if it kills him.

That's good. I see a theme developing.

I know little on the subject so I'll speak at length.

I flatly refuse to justify the exercise of my natural rights to people like those mentioned in this thread - they are not entitled to demand an explanation, and I'm comfortable telling them so. If somebody genuinely wants to know - as in isn't making a demand for an opportunity to make sure I'm aware of just how much they know better than I do what's best for me and mine - I typically explain it thus:
I'm the kind of person who deals with stuff. When a dangerous, ugly, inconvenient, or just plain weird situation comes up and other people step back, I step forward. I'm a problem solver. Most of the people who know me well look to me when stuff happens because I'm usually the first to do something other than stand around and wonder when somebody else is going to do something about it. I tend to pride myself on being willing and able to deal with situations most people want nothing to do with and would rather let get worse than have to figure out how to make things happen. I'm not afraid to act quickly and decisively - and to accept responsibility for the consequences of my actions and decisions. I carry the means to deal with many everyday problems - flashlight, pocketknife, multi-tool, some tape, a lighter, etc.
When it comes to things that threaten the lives and safety of myself and people I care about, I'm gonna deal with the situation until relief arrives or until I go down trying my best. I already know from experience that most people refuse to step up and deal with even minor problems, much preferring to have someone else do it - there's no way on God's earth I would expect anybody else to risk their own safety stepping up to help protect me or mine, nor would I ever feel entitled to demand anybody do so. I've got a defense attorney, cop, and a couple of Marines in my extended family and I know full well what kind of evil some people are capable of doing if not stopped, and I will be damned if I don't step up and deal with those situations on the rare occasions they arise. If somebody is going to hurt the people I love while I'm there to resist it's because they've already incapacitated or killed me. If other people want to wait around for somebody else to do something, that's their own choice and I pity the people who look to them for protection.
Part of resisting violence against myself and those I'm responsible for caring for is having the means to effectively do so. Until a better option arises the best means I possess and can easily carry nearly everywhere is a handgun, preferably with a larger capacity magazine. Being able to throw 230 grains of "NO!" at a threat 14 times before reloading has not yet been required of me and I pray it never will be - but should the situation arise I'll be stepping up to that one too. I've done my best to be prepared and hope it's enough.
