    Long story short; lying about having a gun in my purse as a teen kept me from getting raped. He got scared and believed me then reluctantly let me get out of the vehicle.

    I hate lying but believe God will let me slide on that one.
    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    I would do whatever I had to do according to the situation. More than likely I would not expose the gun until I needed to use it. Don't see any reason to let somebody know that I am armed until they need to know. I don't see how telling somebody that you are armed could be to your advantage if you were in real danger.
