The fire extinguisher is not just for show
cool... what's your point? You don't wish you had been armed... and I would never force you to carry if you didn't want to. Just like off duty, if you choose not to carry, I'm cool with that. Some might prefer they be armed, and all would hope and pray they never need to draw their weapon.I work in an urban area with a high per capita violent crime rate. I’ve seen my share of shootings, stabbings, and assaults. I’ve been on hot scenes. I’ve been in scenes when shots have been fired. I’ve been on scenes when you can still smell gunpowder in the air. I’ve been in scenes were all of a sudden all the cops had their guns out, and I’ve wrestled violent people to the ground.
The number of times that I wished I had a gun on me = 0
That's cool... I am not going to advocate you do something you have no interest in. But just because you have no interest, what about someone else who does? especially someone who carries 24/7?I've worked in the boons for eight years now, I still have no interest in carrying a gun.
Umm... no... that's... wrong... However, I might be incorrect... can you provide any hard evidence that supports your illogical claim?If someone pulls a weapon on you in their house, your attempt at producing your CCW stands a good chance of getting you killed.
I'll even provide an example of when a paramedic had to pull his CCW to save his and his partner's life when a person pulled a weapon on them:
One person is dead, two paramedics injured after a shooting Thursday morning in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The suspect was killed when an armed medic returned fire.&
