    I like her last few words...

    Yup, that's the point!

    Exactly!! And that is why I am always armed! Being a reserve LEO has it's advantages too, as I can carry in places where most people cannot; i.e courthouses, banks, post offices, airports, bars, etc. These types of places are off limits to even law abiding CCW holders. For the exception of these places, I would encourage everyone who can legally carry, to do so anywhere they are allowed. And at all times.

    Exactly. I have said many times unless you have some way of seeing the future you need to carry always. Thanks for posting this. We need to keep reminding each other.

    Her family will get used to her carrying. Once they see she does it with no ill effects for a while they'll get more accustomed to it, and eventually should come to accept it as normal and acceptable.

    +1 here on a Great article. I too am the only one in My Family and close cirlce of Friends to have a CCW. Actually, one of my Friends said I looked ridiculous when he first saw me with a firearm attached to the wasteband of my pants. I told him, you never know in this day and age. He just shook his head at me like I was a "nut".
    I'm baaaaaaaaaaack....................
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

  9. I would love to carry everyday but here in North Carolina the CCW law makes it hard to carry. Almost everywhere is off limits, like banks, state offices, school property including ballfields etc, bars,any place that serves alcohol. Plus if you stop for dinner and have a drink guess what you cannot carry... if you have any trace of alcohol in your blood you get charged.. Your blood alcohol must be 0.0000000 when carring. No trace period... so I guess all the bad guys have to look for are anyone out for dinner with the family and he or she has a glass of wine, guess what.. he can be sure they are not carring and if they are and something happens like they pull the gun on him they get charged with carring a gun while drinking... Plus where I live almost every establishment has a no guns sign and again if it is posted as such you better not be carring...

    Some states are a lot harder than others on 2nd Amendment rights. After I left the Sheriff's Dept. I still carried most of the time before Texas passed their CHL. There are still some places here that are off limits that do not make any sense. For that matter most off limiit places make no sense. Drinking and carrying here is pretty much the same but I do not drink so not a problem. Guess a person would have to deside if drinking was important enough to leave you gun home or not. After all is said and done I still believe that it is Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

    Some over-the-counter medications have traces of alcohol, some cough syrups for example if I remember correctly. We must to be aware that those items might affect our blood alcohol level. Even if they don't contain alcohol, they might contain some form of narcotic or medication that might impair judgment. (Some cold/flu medications put me to sleep, just as if I'd thrown back a few.) Not only can they affect our judgment for ccw, but also for driving. There have been news articles about taking sleeping medications and then driving to work in the am while still under their influence. Life can be risky, for sure!
