    Committed or just involved

    When it comes to breakfast the pig is committed. He becomes a tasty slice of bacon. The chicken on the other hand is just involved. She donates an egg. When it comes to concealed carry are you committed or just involved.

    I don't carry at schools or other prohibited places, but I can't remember the last time I went out without being armed. If I'm at home and wearing pants I'm wearing my gun. The only time I'm unarmed is when I'm in bed and at those times my weapon is about one foot away on the nightstand. I don't do this because I'm living in fear. I live and work in very safe communities. I do it because I made a commitment. Here's my logic.

    It is an undeniable fact anyone can be a victim of violent crime at any time and any place, therefore any concepts of times or places where you may not be required to fight for your very life at the drop of a hat are just so much cow dung. I'm sure the time is comming when some fair weather cc'er is faced with "the event" and reaches for their gun where it is supposed to be and comes out with nothing but air. Here's my point.

    If you havn't yet made a commitment to be armed at all times, (when it's legal and not aginst you're employers policy), get off the fence and do so. Concerns about what other people think or what the sitiuation might be just don't cut it. I personally can't understand the person that will make the decision to carry a loaded weapon, which to me is a very big and serious decision and then decide that on occasion they will not carry.

    +1 on that. I take my gun ALL the time, even if it's just out to grab the mail. Good post.

    Committed! (When and where legal)
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    Mmmmm...what do I think?
    OK, I'll side with the committed folks.

    Stay armed...stay committed...stay safe!

    careful calling yourself committed. They might just commit you to the crazyhouse.

    Trying to differentiate between committed and involved...seems one and the same. Do I carry in the shower...no. Do I believe and practice self-defense...yes.

    Interesting posts, to say the least. Perhaps I’m either too old or just plain stupid. However, my life experiences has me thinking of risk vs. threat. Statistically, I feel the chances of someone barging in my home are actually pretty low. Conversely, I feel that my chances of being challenged in public are considerably higher. Based on this simple premise, I’ve decided that in the home, I’ll have a gun readily available vs. immediately available. I want to ensure that if something goes bump in the night I don’t instinctively react with deadly force before my cognition is intact.
