    Not really. I avoid the bad places but it doesn't hurt to keep something handy until I'm as rich as Rosie O'Donnell and can afford my own private armed bodyguards while yelling about how evil guns are.
    Example, I went shopping at the Winn Dixie yesterday. I had my Bersa .380 pistol in my right front pocket and a spare mag in my rear left pocket. No big deal but it was there IF needed.

      Very good, that is similar to Texas's CHL.

        Sorry for the confusion. I was refering to the origional post about a guy who is a Special Police Officer from Boston getting arrested, in Boston, for carrying off duty, in Boston. I wasn't discussing the merits of the law allowing out of state carry. Sorry for not being more clear.

            Off-Duty Officer Killed in Gun Fight

            I'm ALWAYS armed off duty. Don't think I could ever have a job saying I can't carry off duty. I already have a difficult time with working unarmed security or with an ambulance or fire/rescue company where I'm tild I can't have a weapon on duty but I deal with it. I'd be damned if they say I can't go strapped while walking the street or going shopping.

            The officer was off-duty but armed. The incident serves to remind us that carrying a sidearm off-duty does not make us impervious to the consequences of deadly force situations.

              I don't assume I'm impervious but I like having the option to defend myself should it become necessary.

                The account relates that the two exchanged words before the shooting. Could the concealed gun that the officer was carrying have created a false sense of security that emboldened him to talk back? Who knows? However, when one is defenseless, they usually avoid escalating the situation at all costs. It's possible that he may not have been killed if he hadn't had that gun.

                  Usually when someone is going to kill someone else, they've already decided the action during the first moments of the confrontation.

                        Possibly. No need to make them change their mind though, if they weren't going to kill you.
