I will not chase a purse snatcher, stand between (2) fighting men or investigate odd happenings in dark alleys.. I carry a gun to protect myself and my family, not to be anyone's sentinel or security force.

I would gladly leap in front of a moving bus to save a child in the street but pulling a weapon in pubic to involve myself in someone elses troubles is not something I plan to do.

Society has created an environment where no matter if I am right and well intentioned, gun play in public can cost me my livelihood. I am willing to accept that circumstance if defending myself or my family but I am not so willing to accept it for someone who I "think" is victim involved in a situation that I "think" I understand and "seems" to have placed them in peril and where I "may" have identified the badguy.
