I’ve never been in a “real” fight in my entire life. This despite the fact that I have a mouth on me. Even in high school, where fights were an almost daily occurrence and I was extra-special mouthy, I managed to talk my way out of confrontations. After being mugged — once at knifepoint — I realized that there are evil people who have no interest in talking. More than that . . .
I’ve taken self-defense classes (specifically Krav Maga). Yes, I’m mentally prepared to go all-in should I or my loved ones be faced with an imminent, credible threat of grievous bodily harm or death. But I have no illusions about my physical fitness or prowess. So I carry a gun.
What are the three reasons you carry or have access to a gun?
