I still go to shows but am no longer the guy who is drunk beyond comprehension... I don't mind having a good time but I now do it responsibly.
I think growing older, having a family makes some people realize there is more to life then just living your life in a "haze"... being an adult is great, but sucks all at the same time... I miss hanging out on warm summer nights with out a care in the world... But such is life. If I didn't have any "cares" that means that I would not be trying to better my life for myself and family.
And you're right about the crazies out there... Just think about this for a minute ( and I have no factual proof to back it up at this time, but it makes you think) think about the news for a minute. Whether you read/watch or gather it some other way.
Think about the amount of "bad news" reported assaults/robberies/murders... Actual reported events are less than .5% of the daily happenings, maybe even less. Just makes you think about all the crazies out there that haven't "hit" the end of their road yet.
Exactly the reason why I carry, you just never know what may be lurking around the corner as you and your significant other are walking back to your car after a nice dinner.
