    I w reading the latest magazine I picked up and there was a brief response posted to explain a guys attitude,\
    too being asked.
    "why do, you carry that concealed handgun"
    and Ill para phrase his

    I got a good laugh!

    (1) when I was younger I used to try to explain the concepts of the need for individual responsibility,
    the need to be able to defend ones person and family and list a long detailed list ,
    of logical reasons , why I chose too carry a handgun.

    (2) I soon realized that the only people who ever bothered,asking similar questions were rarely listening to the answers or details,
    they were simply waiting for me to take a breath,too blast my response with a long list of "CANNED and pre-memorized talking points,
    (in most cases they had not listened to a word I said.)
    and if I was too point out any obvious flaws, outright lies, or in their "lack of logic or reasoning"
    I was met with an emotional cascade or outright hate!

    (3) I don,t know many adults, where I live in rural florida (even the gals) that don,t have a concealed carry licence and most that do, carry most of the time.

    (4)a typical concealable handgun is a DEFENSIVE tool , its designed for fairly close range and easy access and dependability is critical.

    (5) like a spare tire in your cars trunk,
    a fire extinguisher in your home, a basic medical kit in your home,
    or a parachute in an airplane,
    its a back-up tool that can potentially save you from having to deal with much more costly or even lethal results if its used correctly in time,
    but you would prefer not to use it if it could be avoided.

    (6) all you need too do is read the local papers and check on-line for local crime statistics too realize GUN FREE ZONES have a fairly high relation too muggings and that there is significantly more muggings and robberies that the local news media will ever admit too.
    (most larger police departments have digital maps showing recent local crime locations dates and symbols indicating the class of crime, see example posted lower in the thread,below)
    (if that map and reading the results won,t convince you the need to carry nothing will)
    Id also point out that the local news tends to ignore cases where licence carrying gun owners prevent crime or shoot criminals.

    (7) the news media will frequently ignore any case where an armed defendant with a concealed carry permit, prevented a crime, helped a cop, or where he successfully protected his family as its not going to promote the liberal total dis-armament agenda

    (8) yes you can, have fun screwing with the liberal minds,
    of those asking that silly question,
    by leaning in close, and whispering.... in a conspiratorial manor.....
    total nonsense, of course, like
    "you do know ....that...... killer clowns are cannibals?"
    " that ALL those voices you hear when its quite at night in your room...
    say they are going to attack any day now?,
    thousands will come out of closets, cellars and out from under beds,
    some night SOON!"

    but they might take that seriously (yes most are that stupid)

    keep in mind crime rates have fallen steadily since concealed carry laws were enacted , as the risk to criminals has increased, by allowing victims to effectively resist, the incentive to rob, mug ,rape or invade homes tends to drop

    notice the date range is ONE WEEK

    and trust me palm beach is almost crime free compared to many areas of the country


    here is miami fl over the same 7 day time span
    new orleans for the same 7 days

    the computer plot of crimes in chicago with strict gun control is so dense they can,t plot individual crimes so they simply list numbers per small neighbor hood area
