Thank you again for your responses. I'm understanding more about why you carry and E6chevron's analogy was helpful. Looking into a Google search of "wrongful shooting by police" brings up of course several stories of wrongful and semi-wrongful shootings by police. There is a common theme to them though. The people that were shot were armed.
To elaborate on E6chevron's analogy would you prefer the small spare tire your car comes with or a full size one made of steel? It's easier for police to identify violent people if they're the only ones that have them out. So, carrying a loaded gun is a lot like having the steel spare tire. It's way too much for what you need it for and it will more often set you back.
Thinking about that would having a gun make you feel safer knowing that you're more likely to get shot if both criminals and police might shoot you?
One, we do not LEO bash, nor allow extended or concentrated efforts to find fault with LEA/LEO.
Suggest you read and master Gun Facts (http://www.gunfacts.info/) and familiarize yourself with it if you are to be well received here.
