    An insightful... and, in my opinion, an extremely intelligent observation. Well done.

    I am confident everywhere I go, I am armed in all cases (not always with a firearm). I am always aware and alert. I do not go to paces I would not go without a firearm, even when I am carrying one. It is not a matter of confidence and if you need a firearm to feel confident Portugal's it is not a good choice for you.

    Even though I may be armed I was trained long ago to always stay in condition yellow, relaxed awareness. Still do this out of long years of practice.

    Despite your past life, the fact that you have raised up your family to a level higher than most Americans tells me you have a lot of worth and character as a person. To put others ahead of one's self is always an admirable thing.

    You know now that you bring that up, it seems as though that would be a good route for a prosecutor to go if you were ever involved in a shooting in a "bad part of town". They might ask "is this somewhere you would go had you not have been carrying a gun?" If you answer no, they might say "then wouldn't it be reasonable to assume you went into that situation intending to shoot someone? Because if you wouldn't normally go there, you assume the probability of being attacked is higher than usual. And you carry a gun to shoot someone who attacks you. Therefore you assumed the likelihood that you would have to shoot someone was higher than normal, which tells me you intentionally put yourself in a situation where you'd have to shoot someone else." Bam, that jury is voting guilty all day long.
