In places where I will be searched (airports, courthouse, etc.) I will not carry. I will expect the armed folks that are searching me to protect me. I have to travel internationally fairly often and must bow to the inevitable at such times.

In places where some sign painted on a doorway says Gun Free Zone, I am more inclined to the "Don't ask, don't tell" philosophy. I'll carry there, well concealed, and will be willing to leave immediately if challenged on the question. In most such places, the violation amounts to trespassing. Leaving immediately when the owner says he doesn't want you there should be sufficient to avoid a trespassing beef. I'm sure there are Gun Free Zones where the armed constabulary will descend like avenging angels on the disobedient CCW person (me), but I'd rather take that chance than be found without a gun when I need one.

Just my opinion.

Sad to read about the officer in Texas. I would hope his pastor and fellow churchmen would give him leeway of needed since his sidearm is part of his tool belt.

I was told by a friend who is charge of getting the church's security team CCDW licenses. I will inquire about the list.
