    I walk out of the mall, and a group of men are violently assaulting a member of YOUR family. Do you want me to intervene? or should I just worry about ME and MY family?
    You had better duck because if it's my family they will be shooting back

    If every you present your weapon to defend lives or property you will need legal council afterwards to defend yourself from the criminal and civil consequences that are sure to follow. I see this end result constantly after a shooting.

    cabn anyone really speculate on how they would actually act in any given situation without being in that situation? its a great thread that brings to mind some serious thought about why we carry but as any thread can go it turns into a measurement of dicks because guys dont agree on what is right and what is wrong when they havent even been involved in the situations themselves.

    i would...why wouldnt you? if it were your family? if it was an old lady...

    cmon....take a step back into reality...the reason the vast majority of us have never had cause to brandish our firearm is because we dont get into situations that require it, we avoid situations that require it and there really arent that many situations in real life that require it. we can make up any situation we want...but until we're in it...we really dont know how we are gonna react.

    ive watched some great shooting friends and family lock up drawing down on an animal in the field...until they got there they had no idea they couldnt kill a living thing...what makes you think itll be easy for you? oh i know...its different when its your life or someone elses...or is it?

    fire away...

I know that if I saw three hoods beating down an old lady, I'd step in. I'd do this whether I was armed or not. I know I'd do this because I've intervened twice in my life to protect others and both times were long before Kansas had CC. If I have to defend myself in the courts, then so be it but I don't want to have to live with myself if an innocent died or was severely injured if I could have prevented it.

    I feel that before we started CC it would have been a fist fight, now that we have a weapon we feel that we have to use it if some one gets in our face.
    It that's your reason to carry, it's the wrong reason, and the wrong attitude. That's like the kid who takes Karate lessons so he can beat up on the "big" guys.
