    I am getting grief about carrying for protection of my family and fellow citizens

    It's from a car forum.

    I said I would use my 2A Rights and concealed permits to protect myself, my family, and my fellow citizens. What is your opinion?

    You should NEVER let anyone know that you carry. If you do you might as well carry a sign that says I have a gun. IMHO Does not apply to LEOS.

    Well, at least with a firearm you have the 2nd Amendment. There is no delineated right in the Constitution guaranteeing car ownership and it's not even up for debate that cars kill drastically more people each year than firearms can come close to matching. In Arizona the last couple of years we've been plagued with 'wrong way' drivers on our local freeways. I'm much more fearful of that than I am of getting into a gunfight.

    Sounds like the grief you’re getting came from someone on the Prius forum!
    Who cares what others think? It’s what you think that matters. I happen to agree with you, but others may not.
    It’s their right, just like it’s your right to carry and protect yourself and your family.

    Nobody knows that I have an LTC, and that I sometimes carry, but the local police, my wife, and a neighbor, a couple doors down, who also carries. He doesn't care who knows.....says 'it's his right'. He even brags about it! Like I should be impressed. I not!!!! Bob

    I carry concealed everywhere it is legal. Even at home. Must say times have changed drastically and I do not trust anyone anymore but my family. Am surprised at how many people show their concealed weapons. I have councilled many people I have met that maybe thought was smart or challenging to let people know they were carrying. One question I ask them, if you were a shooter and knew who had a weapon, who would be the first you would target. They think, then the light bulb comes on and they say I see the point, thanks. People just do not think things through. This forum I say this and am on no other forum but Ruger and Colt.

    If I have my pants on I have my gun on. Tennessee is an open carry state but I try very hard to keep mine concealed. I don’t want anyone but my wife to know that I have a gun on.
