Hi Mas, The other night I was at home having a couple beers and a thought struck me ( I know, thats probaly how thousands of "how I ended up in jail" stories begin). But all kidding aside, I started wondering "what if some one broke into my house and tried to attack or kill me". Have you heard of shootings, where a person a had to use lethal force to defend themselves in their home and were justified but faced problems later because they had consumed alchohol? I quit going to bars after I began to carry, is it better to never drink at all? I probably only drink once or twice a year anyway so it doesnt matter a whole bunch to me. It just seems, with the current political climate, and how sensitive a SD shooting is in general...if you were the poor sap who drank half a sixpack on his couch and got home invaded...your options would be: carried by 6 or HUNG by 12.
