You want to outright call me a coward...then do it. I am not going to report you to the moderators because it proves my point. Irrationality is the biggest problem that we as Concealed Carry Holders face. You shouldn't talk yourself up to a situation. You shouldn't call people cowards for understanding the laws, acting accordingly, and generally showing that they are responsible citizens.
You call me a coward because I have no desire to kill someone who is NOT commiting a forcible felony? I don't want to kill someone who is even committing a petty crime. That is why it is petty. You can jerk your gun out of your pants and wildly display it at children doing graffiti, but I for one will just let the cops take of said situation. Why? Because I don't want the death of a 17 year old (and despite the image that Blackdog posted...Trayvon STILL looks like a kid to me...he looks like a scrawny baby faced child [and I am consierablly larger than him too]) on MY concious because I was being irresponsible with my carry. What if it was YOUR kid walking home at 7:00 at night?
You seem to want to encourage people to just pull their gun at the first hint of trouble. You act as if I wouldn't react in a situation where a forcible felony was being committed. You act as if most people would just stand idly by and allow a situation to happen. I bet most people would call the cops, and those of us who carry would act if given no choice. I don't think you get that, and I don't think you get what weight it would be upon your soul to kill someone when you had a choice not to and you didn't make it. Forgive me and anyone else for not wanting to live with that, but don't you DARE mistake that for innaction or indeccision if forced into a situation. That is just stupidity and more irrationality on your part.
