I think I should carry my gun all the time, at home and out and about. My husband thinks I’m deluded to carry at home, that we have good locks and an alarm, who needs a gun on their hip? Can you weigh in on this?
Armed and Ready
Dear Armed and Ready,
I’m with you, carry wherever you legally can. Most of us recognize the dangers lurking outside our homes and understand that concern. However, the recent attack in NJ that was captured on a nanny-cam illustrates that danger can come to us, anywhere, anytime and without warning. The horrifying video showing the vicious assault on a young Mom is disturbing and a wake up call at the same time.
