Default Do you carry?

For all of you who live where such things are legal, 1 Do you have a concealed weapons permit, and 2 Do you carry?

My answers are 1: Yes and 2: Yes.

I live in the US now, in the Pacific Northwest, in a county where carrying is permitted with a licence.

I'm from South Africa, where a lot of people carry.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

You should carry a concealed person.

I carry a concealed gun because I can't carry a concealed tank.

This thread is just frightening... [img]/threads/images/Graemlins/Cold.gif[/img] ...and reinforces me in trying to minimize my travels to the USA...

Sure, criminals with knives can be defended against by carrying a gun, but what about criminals carrying guns as well to keep up with everybody else?

Even worse is that people seem to be concerned that such crimes might really happen to them with a likeliness high enough to offset the trouble and danger of carrying a firearm. (And I did have had my share of firearms training as a soldier...) It is this "I-know-that-I-am-always-the-good-guy"-mentality that frightens me even more. I am of the arguable personal opinion that there is no such thing as universal-good and unviersal-evil. However, I think that it is less arguable that there is a proper likeliness of human misperception and mis-judgement, especially when under stress and pressure. But you cant take a chance if it is either them or you, right? After all, your criminal opponent might carry a gun as well, right? What about innocent cultural strangers that just happen to act differently?

So I am frightened. Maybe carrying a gun would make me happy again...trigger-happy...

Crime here is no worse or better than any other place in the world that has a civilized culture. The problem in the US is that we have a meth epidemic coupled with a self esteme issue. To many kids are growing up without morals or values and all they care about is getting instant gratification without the guts or incentive to work for it. It can be said that a significant portion of the crime in America is drug related. Deal with the drug epidemic and well, crime goes down.

I have a permit to carry but I have not carried in over five years. So having the permit does not mean one will always carry. However, if I chose to carry at least I am legal to do so. Not that I would want to carry unless I was traveling.

I don't have a gun, but I do have this magnificent walking stick I use as a cane for when I walk in excess of 3 blocks (where having it is useful to my mobility).

Made from a sledge hammer handle of solid hickory and topped with a solid oak grip.

Now if a person attacks me, they damn well better have a gun, because a knife will just get you clubbed to death.
