I was just reading an article, and it brought an idea into my mind.  There are still some states (*cough*Kalifornia*cough*) that make it extremely hard to get a CCW.  New York is another example, and of course, we can go on from there.  So the question is, if you were going into a bad neighborhood, would you let that lack of a CCW permit stop you?  Where do you draw the line and decide that enough is enough, you're gonna live through this, even if the other guy doesn't?

When I travel in or out of state it is always under the assumption that I would rather be tried by a jury of my peers than carried by six of them.

We have no CCW provisions at all in MO. (Even as a retired LEO there is no way I can get one.)
I carry every time I leave the house.

 When I lived in the People's Republic of Maryland,  I was denied a CCW even though I'd been shot at - I was a bystander and not specifically targetted.  I voted with my feet and moved to another state where things are more reasonable..

I made the decision long ago that I would carry legally as long as they gave me a legal avenue to do so.  And when they cease to give me that legal avenue I would carry anyway.

Over here in the People's Republic of New Joyzee, only rich jews get carry permits.

I carry my Glock w/modified Birdman sights everywhere I go.

Nobody is gonna cap my black ass without getting a hail of gunfire in return.

BTW:  NJ sucks.  (ever drive through Cedar Grove??)

Hypothetically speaking and for instance, if I lived in a place like southern California and the Rodney King civil verdicts were about to be announced, I would not leave the house without a firearm concealed about my person. Also, if my mother-in-law lived in a place like Cerritos, California, I might conceivably escort her that weekend to church and back, to the store and back, etc, carrying a firearm all the while.

But the police are there to protect us, so this hypothetical discussion, while entertaining, is essentially pointless.

I carry always. When I happen to be in a place where carry is allowed legally then I carry larger less discreet firearm.

I always carry but when doing so illegally then I downsize.

In Washington State I can't carry until I'm 21, I'm 19 now, I'll just wait two years.

When I lived back east, I carried, when I felt it was needed....Ohio had NO CCW, and my ex was in DC for a year....Carried, Carried, Carried..

Now I legally carry in-state...My parents live in KaliKomie.....No Komment.....

On those rare occasions when I have to go into Philadelphia, it sure is comforting to have a .45 on my side and a .357 Magnum in my back pocket. Even better would be to never have to go there though.
I can't discuss situations when I have to work in Baltimore or DC. I'm still here though, aren't I?

Live In Cincinnati Would you carry Take About1 sec and think about it!!!!

Once again I must ask my repeated question-

Does the outcome of what might happen if you're a victim of a violent crime, outway the penalty of unlicensed concealed carry?

[b]DEATH[/b] vs. fine/jail time.

I carried before I was issued my permit and will carry again if they take it away. Where I'm from the LE Center is 50 miles away. I see a Deputy Sheriff in the area about every 2 months. There's now way one will be around when needed.

Calif does allow unlicensed carry in certain circumstances. Look up the following in DOJ-Dangerous Weapons Control Law.
 12031 (j)(1)
 12031 (j)(2)
 12031 (k)
 12031 (k)(1)

I used to have something around all of the time.
Then I got civilized and got the proper paperwork and now I just carry the two allowable.
Both are Sigs. Use the same holsers etc. I'm set but wish that they were a bit smaller.

Got mine, but with so many restrictions, what's the point?
What's going on?
