I'm not opposed to people carrying firearms should they feel the need to, in fact I encourage it. Get some training and carry the gun if it makes you feel better. Like I said, I grew up in LK territory, I've seen first hand how these people work. They don't want to come at you from the front, they tend to come from behind or in groups so they can limit your ability to react. They will kill you over your wallet, make no mistake about that, but 9 times out of 10 they'll split once you've handed over what they want. I'd rather part with a piece of leather, some plastic, and paper, than my life. The concealed carry crowd needs to acknowledge the fact that a criminal will make every effort to prevent you from using your gun, most of them don't want a murder charge over a wallet, but if you make a wrong move they'll gladly accept that charge. The wallet should go first, if they continue the threat then you should make every effort to go out swinging.

Everyone has an opinion and they are entitled to it.
However when a group of people take their opinion and use it infringe on a guaranteed right I have issues.
I grew up in New Orleans, LA I was shot by 2 black guys that were in a gang. They did it in retaliation of me using a US history book to remove the front teeth of their gang leader that facilitated my almost daily beating for no other reason than being white in an all black school. Despite the fact of being shot in my chest and leg in 2 spots I returned fire and shot both of them. Had I not been tipped off by a friend I would not have taken my mothers 9mm to school with me that day and likely would have been shot many more times.
My right to defend myself trumps all opinions to the contrary.
I am beginning to think Progressive liberal ideology in regards to gun control is a form of mental illness.
