34. The fact that you have never felt any need to carry a firearm...

is not unusual. Most people feel the same as you.

I choose to carry a firearm because I prefer to be prepared. That in no way means that I fear that I will be attacked or suffer from paranoia. In fact, I doubt that I will ever have a legitimate reason to use my carry weapon.

However I did invest the time and expense to get a concealed carry license and that effort would be wasted if I decided to leave my carry revolver home in the safe and found myself facing an attacker who I believed had every intention of seriously injuring or killing me. I would also feel like a total fool.

edited to insert "never" into the title.
