I live in a suburban idyll. I avoid stupid people in stupid places doing stupid things. The chances that I’ll need ballistic defense are about the same as the odds that I’ll be sharing a martini with January Jones on New Year’s Eve. And yet I carry a gun everywhere, everyday, except where prohibited by law (of course). Because if I need a gun and don’t have one, that would really, really suck. So, when I’m not carrying a gun, I don’t feel safe. Even though I probably am.
Does that make any sense? How safe do you feel, generally speaking? Are there times and places where you feel unsafe, and does carrying a gun make it feel any safer?
