I never said that I carry because I'm fearful. I'm a retired police officer and I'm cognizant of where troubles could occur. The media loves to stoke fear and those who don't know better drink their Kool-Aid. By the way, I own 7 firearms and none of them have ever shot anyone.Nothing sells guns more than fear. I can't even fathom what it's like to live in US right now, where you have to carry a guy to feel safe, that takes the pleasure out of driving a convertible, or at least it would for me. I feel for you people.
