Do you always carry where it is legal to?
When I was taking my CWP class, the instructor was telling us all the places we can't legally carry. Then he said something that shocked me. He started telling us places he has carried that it is illegal to carry. Places where it was not safe or whatever, justifiable places. His theory was it is better to be caught carrying than dead.
On this forum with the thousands, millions and who knows, maybe billions of the best people that have ever carried a gun, I have heard countless times that I need to read Ayoob.
Well, I am. I am going through his Concealed Carry book, and there is a section that talks about this.
“They won’t find out I’m carrying illegally unless I need to use it, and if I need to use it, getting busted for it is the least of my worries.” You’ve heard that, right? Well, it’s a myth! The likelihood of the gun being found on you after a car crash or medical emergency, the likelihood of it being spotted or felt by someone in contact with you, may be greater than the likelihood of your needing to draw it in self-defense. Remember that in many jurisdictions the first offense of illegally carrying a gun is a felony, often bringing a minimum/mandatory one year imprisonment. And where it’s “only a misdemeanor,” remember that “only a misdemeanor” means “only 364 days in jail.” Not to mention a firearms-related crime on your record.
Be smart. Be legal. Carry only where the law allows you to do so.
So, what do you do when confronted with the choice, to go without your gun legally, or with your gun illegally?
