Sometimes I don’t...but unfortunately sometimes, it is a prudent to have a measure of insurance.Then don't carry. Men have been killing each other for millennia.
My "howl at the moon days" ended in 1976. You're right it is a big responsibility, I pray I never need.Didn't answer the poll as I do not fit into either answer.
Do I enjoy carrying? Yes and no. Sometimes it is a PITA. It changes the way I live my life. No more going out getting drunk and howling at the moon. I love firearms, love to shoot them, love tinkering with them. Carrying is a big responsibility and sometimes I just wish I did not feel the need to strap one on. But I do everyday, all day.
But I do feel the need and feel blessed to have the ability to defend myself and my loved ones
Absolutely not.I sincerely hope that everyone who carries does not take delight in preparation of injuring or ending a life. I hope that it will never come to that because it will be a tremendous weight to carry. It would only be mitigated by knowledge of a life saved.
Like?Do you like carrying?
I want to live in a place where, when it's necessary to do so, I know that I will be supported by a system that recognizes my right to defend my life and loved one's at the least, and certainly one that includes doing so for my property that I earned through my own efforts. And if I fall doing so, one where the authorities will seek justice on my behalf.No, I don't. I want to live where carrying a gun and self protection is unnecessary, just like that place where "Shall not Infringe" is a reality, even though neither place exists.
Such a place does exist! That is the place where you can ride this off into the sunset:No, I don't. I want to live where carrying a gun and self protection is unnecessary, just like that place where "Shall not Infringe" is a reality, even though neither place exists.
And the issues about carrying are artificially constructed.I like the idea of taking the responsibility for my own safety - as best I can, realizing that I may fail at it. I like shooting firearms and appreciate their mechanical design. But there are a number of issues about
carryingthat are not pleasant. Shooting and carrying are two very different things.
