I carry a handgun because the damn thing can't walk or get around on it's own. It needs me to chauffeur it around, and in return, it allows me to use it when needed.

I carry insurance. I carry a spare tire. And I carry a gun.

I carry so that I have a better chance of not being "carried."

I would rather be judged by 12 then carried by 6.

Even if you call a LEO he may or may not arrive in time to do any good. Living in the big city his call may be an ambush. Look at what happened to the officers in WA. You never know when you will need to protect your family and friends.

I carry a handgun because my AR is a little to big to conceal

I like my AR but I LOVE my FAL and Cetme/H&K 91. Just something about the 7.62 over the 5.56. If I could carry it conceled I would.

I wish I had the money for a Springfield M1A yet I am not sure if I would give up my Fal or my Cetme/HK.
