Nothing wrong with pocket carry bro.... If you put it in a proper holster, otherwise your a moron.

I'll not judge this person w/o knowing much more, and I won't thump my chest saying, "I would have", but I will try to point out to others, as well as remind/reinforce myself, what little I may have to offer.

Agreed. Nothing is 100% preventable but we can take extra steps to preventing as much as we can by being prepared physically and mentally.

Love the Brady bunch rep saying, "most people obviously don't carry for a reason".

That reason being most people such as her self are sheep.

A couple red flags about the victim. 1. He's been carrying for about a year and claims he's already had to pull to warn others in situations but hadn't had to use it. Was this report from Compton CA? 2. Doesn't use a holster.

Sure I know in this PC world we aren't to judge but something about the victim makes me think he's not playing with a full deck.

YMMV

^^^ I agree. I think the lesson we can all take away from this is...Sheet happens...don't let it happen to you!

I think those are very good points.

A gun does not solve problems, any more than a wrench can fix your car.

A gun is a tool you can use to solve problems, just like a wrench can be used to fix your car.

If you do not know how to handle problems, whether violent crime or a broken-down car, no tool will help.
