If you're trying to get into a political debate/fight about this, sorry, not going to bite. And I'm sure the admins./mods would rather we not engage in such.The right that preserves my freedom is one reason to carry. Animals another. Human animals another. It seems to me that I would rather be caught with one and not need it then without and need it.
I honestly feel it is the duty of every American to Cary a firearm. That's the reason it was written in to the constitution. Preservation of freedom only happens through a well armed ,educated populace.
