I just made a post to a comment made about when to use a firearm and I realized that I needed to post my comment as its own topic to get the view of others reading this about how they can legally protect themselves living the great state of California where you can't get a permit to carry a weapon, so only criminals can carry them.
Should I carry a weapon anyway knowing that if I get caught I'll go to jail, and then I really will be a criminal, or do I follow the law and run the risk of running into some low life who doesn't care about the laws here or anywhere else?
In life we are always having to make decisions. Where do we live? Who will I marry? How many children will I have? What will I eat for breakfast?
Most decisions we make are not life threatening. When it comes to making a life threatening decisions you ultimately have to make a decision and hopefully you're decision will not be one that you will later regret making or not making.
I would rather be alive and living in a jailhouse for making the right decision, than to live with the fact that I could have saved the live of someone but chose not to because I would be breaking the law.
