When people ask me why I carry a gun, I ask them "how else would I be able to get to it if I didn't carry it :??"
I don't mind educating folks, however, that's not my goal when I carry. If someone expresses genuine curiosity, I'm more than happy to answer questions.
I'm not really annoyed, by people who OC to educate. What really annoy's me is when people say they carry because it's their right but as soon as they're rights are violated by LE, they roll over.
You only have the rights you're willing to fight for and the right to bear arms is protected for the people to be secure from the government (at least it's supposed to be protected). Why then is it that people only assert their rights i.e. stand up to common citizens but acquiesce to government tyranny?
