That's really how I feel. Here in AZ they just recently caught two guys who were serail (sp) shooters. Not one of the guns they were using in the crimes they commited were registered. All the gunns they had were unregistered and these two guys were CCW holders. In all of the shootings that were done not one single person of those fired on had a weapon on them. If they had they may have had a chance to defend them selves. That is why I carry a weapon- there are to many nut cases who can get guns even if they aren't supposed to have them.
I don't think that everyone should carry but do think that more people should. I have heard a story of a guy who was planning a robbery once and when he went into the store one of the customers had a gun so he left and went down the road to another store and robbed them instead. When he was caught he related that story to the cops and told them that he wasn't about to try to rob a store where there was a chance that he might get hurt by a bystander.
As I said earlier I don't always have my 45 on my hip but I am ususally armed and it is concealed. I don't swagger when I walk cause it would draw attention to me and I don't want or need that. I just don't want to be a victim of another nut who is out to see how many folk he can shoot.
