I'm also wondering if since you started carrying if you felt like a hammer always on the lookout for a nail...
When I got my license, I also got a list of restrictions on where I could and couldn't go, and conduct that was expected of me, and pretty good knowledge of how the law works.
I took notice of a warning about a bunch of old retired folks (like me
) who don't own guns, and who might be sitting in judgement of my actions someday.
Maybe you don't take crap off people, normally. When you're armed, you take crap off everyone and walk away.
