I’m in love. Why wouldn’t I be? I’ve found a good woman. Finally. Discretion being the better part of valor (and chivalry) I’ll refrain from singing her praises on these pages. Suffice it to say now that I’ve found her I don’t want to lose her. I want to protect her from anyone who’d do her harm, as best I can, just as I protect my children, friends and community. My everyday carry gun doesn’t change the fact that life is a messy, unpredictable, complicated and yes, dangerous business. It simply gives me a better chance to do what I have to do. As a man. As a father. As law-abiding American. And a lover. Happy Valentine’s Day.
