    Zimmerman's *********gery and abject irresponsibility have no effect on my choice to carry. HH

    Not in the least.

    The best lesson to learn here is to MYOB. If it doesn't affect you and you aren't under attack, Mind Your Own Business because it ain't your problem.

    His problem has no bearing on me exercising my right to carry

    Same thoughts here. Doesn't affect me at all. He becomes a learning tool regarding how to mind your own business. My CCW is for those moments when I need to defend myself due to no fault of my own.

    A friend of mine just took a CCW course for Wisconsin (thank you Conservative-Republican Governor Scott Walker!), and he emailed me about it...

    He was told that if he used his weapon in a self-defense situation, in all likelihood, he should be prepared to spend about 50-K in his personal defense—and he’d better be found to be in the right!

    Defense within your own home will be a little easier, but you'll still need a lawyer...

    For those not familiar with Wisconsin, this is the first time we've had a Concealed Carry provision or a Castle Doctrine provision in state law... Prior to this, it was a felony to point a loaded firearm at anybody—even your attacker!

    Also for those not familiar, our Libtards are hell-bent on recalling Governor Scott Walker(C-R) for doing just what he campaigned to do—turned a billion dollar deficit into a surplus, and passed Concealed Carry. The GAB's (Government Accountability Board's) indifference to signatures such as Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Mickey Mouse, and Adolph Hitler on the recall petitions made national news. I personally saw one petitioner relieved by a man with Illinois plates on his car.

    Let me see if I've got this right... In that wake of a guy getting his head beaten against the pavement, do I think I should CCW *less*?

    Um...

    Not so much.

    What I *have* learned from it is to make sure I have enough reloads to handle a black pampers posse.

    Well I will always carry when legal. But a word of advice if you don't have insurance for an attorney like I do you better get it. I pay $30 per month in one year I am fully covered for up to 400 hours of representation. I think its a good idea to have this if you are going to carry.

    Where did you find that kind of insurance? With some insurance company, or some pro gun organization? Are you sure it's legitimate? What are the exclusions?

    Just curious.

    I will have to get the paperwork out of my files at home its been awhile since I looked at them since thank goodness I have not needed it yet. I got hooked up with it when I took my Chl class this type of insurance is not unusual my wife has something similar through the school where she teaches. But what she has will not cover a criminal matter I will get the info and post it or get it to you ASAP.

    Yes, please do post it!

    And somebody, please bump this thread so that others see it!

    If it turns out to be readily available to most, maybe Eric can make the link a sticky! :thumbsup:

    Not I. I know the laws well, I have an amazing lawyer on yearly retainer whose card I keep in my wallet next to my CHL. If I ever do have to shoot someone, I'm EXPECTING to be charged and to have this kind of a media circus. I will have used my gun only to defend my life, and it's better to deal with all the BS and media circus and face a murder charge than it is to be dead.

    Nope.

    Regardless of what the outcome of the trial is... Just my personal experience, but "neighborhood watch boss" types I've dealt with rarely seem to operate with their noodle on full-power. I'm sure there are exceptions, but I've know them to be of the... shall we say... "Mall Ninja"/cop-wannabe variety? Busy-bodies at best.

    I don't scout around my neighborhood, looking for "suspicious types". If they're headed for my front door, they're in for a rough evening. If they're not, I don't give a damn. I avoid areas I know are bad. I don't look for trouble.

    That said, I carry everywhere, every day.

    If I have to use my gun, it will be because somebody is being a direct threat to me or mine. It will likely be in a public place(plenty of witnesses), or in my home. I live in Texas, my home is my castle.

    Will this 100% protect me from an itchy DA? Of course not. But any whack job that would randomly choose to attack me would likely be; A) On drugs. B) A career criminal. C) Both.

    I have a clean, clear record. I have friends in both SAPD & Converse PD that would gladly back me up.

    All these things, plus having a lawyer on retainer. I have no problem strapping on my pistol each morning.
