Why Do You Carry Concealed?

I’m in New Orleans visiting some family and this question has come up a few times while I’ve been here.

“Why do you carry a concealed weapon?”

Personally, it was after a very good friend of mine was robbed at gunpoint walking back to his car and then was shot in the chest with a shotgun where he was left to die on the street. This happened in New Orleans and I was living in Las Vegas at the time. I told myself that I would do everything in my power not to let this happen to myself or any of my loved ones. From there I bought my first handgun, a Beretta 90-Two, and soon after received my concealed carry permit.

I wanted to post this question to the site to see what some of the reasons our members are carrying concealed.
