I have, and I do, carry a pistol around.  Especially when my husband is
gone.  In fact, we are going out to the pasture to do some practice shooting
this weekend.  I grew up military, and I am comfortable with using guns, so
I don't have a problem with it, even tho I'm a tree hugging, dirt
worshipping, hippy chick. I believe in the right to carry a gun and to be
able to defend yourself against "ne'er do wells".  My husband has a license
to carry a concealed weapon as well.
