Today, like yesterday…I am carrying. Because I am carrying I will make every reasonable effort to conceal my firearm. On some days you may notice a slight anomaly in the draping of my suit coat…on another day the slight protrusion of my wind vest to one side. Not just my gut or love handles but a compact 6+1 or possible a 17+1 when dressed casual.
Because I am carrying I will abide by all laws. Some are uneasy that I am out there…others take comfort. Seated at the table next to you or four rows back at the theater, I will be carrying. I will abide by all laws at all times…especially those related to my licensed firearm. You will never find me consuming alcohol while carrying. Upon realizing an establishment has properly posted notices restricting my rights to carry, I will return my firearm to my vehicle.
When I attend my kid’s athletic event or any other school function, I will not be carrying. I am on my own then, as are you my friend. Physically anyway, but for now, I feel better…because I am carrying.
This gentlemen is like most CHL holders…a law abiding citizen. Thank you. The criminals will not follow the law or laws regardless of how many they come up with.
