If someone was after my dad, he'd have a gun in his hand so fast you'd think he was Bob Munden. WHo cares about laws when someone is after your family?
But someone is NOT after his dad. They have only fear and speculation. If the law can be broken every time there is fear or speculation of danger then we live in anarchy.
Regardless, the OP appears to have answered his own question. It is perfectly legal for a permit holder to borrow a gun in his state. End of story.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
