We make the decision to carry a handgun for various reason. Obviously, personal protection and/or protection of loved ones or others is high or at the top of the list. For others, it is an opportunity to exercise their 2nd amendment rights.
Whatever your reason, have you considered the ramifications of if you are actually involved in a shootout? Have you thought about what you will say to the police when they arrive? This is something you should definitely be thinking about!
I hope you don't assume that just because you have License to Carry, that you will automatically be treated as a hero and that you won't face charges. Everything depends on the situation as a whole. Even if your are ultimately found justified in your actions, you may have to fight your way through the legal system to get there.
Have you given thought to how you will defend and protect yourself and your loved ones other than with a gun? There are a lot of tools you can use to prepare the undesired shootout. Preparing today can put you in a better position in the event that you are in an unwanted shootout.
