    Story of a little interest from LaCrosse. I thought the possible concealed weapon charge was questionable.

    They sure are starting young these days. Wow, 11 years old and already shooting people (with a bb gun). Soon he will graduate to a firearm and start shooting people with bullets.

    What would you do if an 11 year old pulled a gun on you while you were open carrying? Police - SHOOT.... Private person - ?????

    Can't answer that until faced with the situation. I HOPE and PRAY I'll make the right decision.

    It is a horrible position to be placed in.

    We do know, that if the private person is unarmed; the only choice is cower and pray.

    I choose to carry for the sole purpose of having an alternative, an option other than cower and pray.

    And I'll repeat, every situation is different. One cannot know how they will react until faced with a certain situation. I HOPE and PRAY I make the right decision.

    I think lunging forward to grapple and fight, or runningto cover or at an angle awayare two better options if unarmed.

    If there's a corner or a door close by, that's where I head first and fast.
