I choose (need) to carry because it is my right to defend myself, and I also feel it is my personal duty to defend my loved ones from violent criminal attack.

Since, by nature, random violent criminal attacks are random, I choose to be prepared every day rather than be afraid. If I knew when the attack would come, I would simply avoid it. Since I don't know if or when the attack will come, carrying daily to defend myself is the price I'm willing to pay for peace of mind.

I usually respond with something like, "I hope I don't have to use my spare tire, but I carry it" or, "I hope I don't have to use insurance, but I carry it", you get the idea.
I know but it would not let me start a thread there. Tried several times it said I did not have access.

Because contrary to popular belief, the police aren't here to protect us. They're here to clean up the mess and charge crimes after they are already committed.

I carry because it would be foolish not to, working nights in Detroit. The twelve year-old kids out here are more heavily armed than I am.

Because when seconds feel like hours, the police are minutes away!

I carry for personal defense and protection of my family. After being carjacked at gun point and robbed 2 times in the mid 90's I had no other choice but to my a CCW. almost 20 years later i have over 35 guns. Glocks are my favorite. I hate the Police.

My answer is pretty cut & dry. I used to be a state corrections officer at a maximum security prison, then I was a police officer for several years. Under those circumstances... you never know when you might be confronted by a former inmate or subject that you've dealt with in the past that is still holding a grudge against you. A colleague of mine used to be a jail deputy and was confronted by a former inmate in Wal-Mart while he had his kids with him & he was unarmed. He said he never felt more vulnerable. Needless to say... he now carries everywhere he goes. For that reason, as well as generally not wanting to be a victim, I carry. Not to mention that I'm now a paraplegic and am at a disadvantage against a would be assailant.

If someone asks me, I ask them if they have a fire extinguisher in their kitchen. My pistol is just like thier fire extinguisher. When seconds count, you don't have minutes to wait for the fire department or police to arrive. If that doesn't answer their question, I tell them that I have needed a gun to defend myself in the past and didn't have one and I may not get a second chance if it happens again. My concealed carry pistol is to me what their fire extinguisher and seatbelt is to them.

Exactly. That's why I carry. I've had 1 instance where I really wish I'd had my gun on me, and didn't. After that you will never catch me unarmed! Period!!!
