For those of us that carry a firearm on a daily basis, it has often become a habit – part of our routine. For me, it is part of getting ready for my day and is certainly part of my morning actions. So much so that my dog triggers on my actions of opening the safe and retrieving my side arm – he knows that I am ready to go downstairs to start the day at that point.
Does that make me prepared for any violence that may come? Is it simply enough to be armed?
The short answer is “No”. The longer answer is… an emphatic “No”.
