How do you guys respond to the annoying questions people ask like: "Why do you need to carry a weapon?" "What are you afraid of?" "Are you trying to be a gangster/cowboy/tough guy?" I have responded many times with a simple explanation. I say that my reason for wanting to carry, is that I never want to be one of those victims (read sheep) who willingly goes along with a gunmans (read any attacker) orders. I never want to be in a situation where I have no control over and I am being lined up against a wall with others who are being executed for listening. My thought is that if you comply with the attacker you die, so why not posses the skill to use a tool to defend yourself? At that point you have nothing to lose for trying to actually take control of your life instead of being a spineless victim. What are your thoughts on this, and what do you guys say?
