I am usually carrying a firearm. If I am at home though I usually have one near me.
My uncle has not been without his gun for the last 17 years. He only disarmed when he was taken to the hospital after a car wreck. As soon as he was awake, before he asked for his wife or daughters or any family, he asked for his gun. He takes his personal safety very seriously. It is interesting to note the only time he enters condition white is when he is sleeping but otherwise he has not been in condition white in those same 17 years. He is in a constant state of condition yellow through red, depending on what is happening of course.
