    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

If I can tighten my belt a notch or two, then so can the government.

    For goodness sake we increased the revenue of illegal immigrants, while reducing revenue for citizens (I feel a Robin Hood reference here). The citizens reduced revenue is not just through the paychecks (although that is what I referenced) but through increased insurance premiums due to Obamacare, gas taxes, higher taxes for businesses, etc.

    I would love the extra money, but I don't want a pay raise if it means raising taxes/costs on others to pay for my raise.

    Sorry for the rant, it is partly due to the State Employee's Union that I have to pay non-voting dues to sending out emails and notices that almost demand our support for a legislative bill to provide a 10% pay raise over less than 18 months.
