So my wife and I (both ccw permit holders) go out with some of our known liberal friends to a movie not too long ago. Now the husband of this other couple and I have been friends 15 years and good friends at that. He's now a county magistrate in the county in which we live and I am very proud of the guy (heart of gold). But, he is heavily influenced by his even more liberal, guns kill people instead of people kill people wife (whom I also like very much). Since being married over 2 years ago he has not taken his dust covered Barreta M9 (9mm) out of the top of his closet. Back to the story, we go to the movie and he knows I am a practicing cww holder so he asks me discreetly, "you carrying?". I replied with a smile and a casual "you know it". He smiles at me and says "I'm glad. I feel safer knowing that" Yes. He was very sincere. I just think its humorous and sad at the same time that he doesn't carry his. I asked him what he would do if I wasn't there to make him "feel safer". I got little of any sort of reply.
I am amazed (I know I shouldn't be) by the lack of personal responsibility exhibited here as well as a dose of hypocrisy. What are your thoughts?
