A long time ago my elementary school teacherís wife and child were saved from certain death because they were NOT wearing seat belts. I guess by your friends logic, no one should wear seat belts...

Having a LTCF has taught me to be situationally aware of my surroundings. Even when Iím not carrying (in MD), I am more aware and always have at least one escape route planned. Maybe having a gun wonít save me or my family, but I would rather have a chance.
