YES YES YES
I could not agree more. I carry every place any time I can! With my wife and kids. For our protection.
I do have to say if a meet up helps on the first outing go for it. If a meet up lets you meet new friends go for it. A group of people meeting up for lunch out in public IS normal. Meeting out in public for lunch with friends carrying guns IS NORMAL.
Lets not ONLY carry at meet ups. But every day. Every place. At all times.
This country will be MUCH safer because of it.
