All the f#€%!-g time. Excuse the language, but it is THAT serious. Your life may very well depend on it, your loved one’s life may very well depend on it and you cannot very well save anyone’s life if you don’t have the necessary tools and skills to do so. We cannot, nor do we get to, choose if and when we become the victim of a violent attack. We can, however, choose to go about our lives prepared to defend ourselves should the need ever arise.
Carry your handgun any, and everywhere that you are legally able to do so. Avoid doing business with those establishments that want to have you disarmed. And most importantly, get involved politically to eliminate the ignorant legislative prohibition of firearms in certain types of establishments (restaurants, first and foremost).
It’s your life. It’s your safety. It’s your responsibility.
