I decided to make this it's own thread to keep the off topic drama that is sure to ensue out of the open carry thread. It's a good article if you're a pretentious, self aggrandizing mall ninja. I carry to protect myself, but I don't let it make me think I'm somehow better than those who don't. I will protect others if I can, but it will always be a secondary objective to protecting myself and those I care about. It is not my duty to protect the so-called "sheep" and I am certainly not about to go "sniffing around the perimeter" looking for trouble. You are not the police. You are not Charles Bronson. Do not let the gun go to your head.
