I got a refresh on what it means to have lived in California for some of us. Or maybe just how we develop behavior and mind sets without realizing when think we are moving along. My wife, Julie, and I were listening to the news and caught something about the shooting in the Maryland mall. Julie: It is really getting scary. I'm leery of going to the mall or even to the theater (she's mentioned that before). (Taking on a serious tone of voice...) Really, what would YOU do if you found yourself in a situation like that? Me: Shoot back. Julie: (Blink, blink) This despite the fact she knows I've been trying out concealed carry options and have been packing when we were out and about recently. I've shucked off California like a moth eaten old coat. Julie apparently hasn't quite made the shift. There appears to be some hope, though as she recently out of nowhere volunteered that she liked the LCR the holster shop lady was packing.
