I don't carry
I just got started recently, because of a large quantity of reasons. I plan on getting my CCW in the next several months.
I've had a lot of fortunate and unfortunate situations involving crime and threats to friends and myself. I've never been a big fan of guns, but the arguments against carrying are getting weaker by the day. I've always understood that the government and police, dedicated as most are to my overall well being, are not going to be there in the few seconds I may have left to live during a serious threat. It's my responsibility as a caring human to protect myself, wife, and anyone that is being put in harms way. I've always felt that way, but things are getting worse due to the way the world is starting to think and act. I feel like it's more reckless to be unarmed than armed, to be honest.

The desire to carry started when I was a kid back in the 80's when I heard about the famous McDonalds shooting, then the Post Office "Going Postal" shooting. I have had a few near shooting confrontations but was able to talk my way out of anything bad. I read some stuff from LTC. Groosman (sp?) and I will be no sheep.
While trying like hell to keep my family safe, I will not be a victim or watch some nut kill innocent by standers.
That's why I'm packing!
