Where I work at I am not allowed to carry even a pocket knife. Not even allowed to have one in my car. I carry my wits with me where I go. My gun never makes me feel more secure when I carry it. Bad things happen to people regardless of if they have a weapon or not. When I carry I act the same as if I were not carrying one at all. It keeps me from getting into situations, and from going places I would not have if I did not have it on me.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
