That catchy phrase has gotten a lot of play, its regularly repeated all around the various firearms forums and has become the mantra of many who say man-up, go spendy on belts and holsters, dress around the gun, and so on...
I think there is a big difference between "prepared" and "comforting".
"Prepared" acknowledges the remote possibility of being attacked and takes steps to be able to defend self and family.
"Comforting" in this context is a fix for discomfort, or fear. Perhaps, paranoia to be consoled?
I say carry what you want however you want, you have the right to and I'm glad of it... but I'll keep my clothes and take a little single stack 9mm or 380 that I practice with often.
