5. That's why I cringe at people who wear aggresively pro-gun clothes

I have a GOA shirt I like, and an MSI ballcap, but I will never wear anything that even remotely suggests violence. If I ever had to use a firearm in defense, God forbid, I'd hate to have that used against me. I can hear the prosecuting attorney now:

"All you have to do to establish intent is examine this man's wardrobe. Every day was a frustrated, unsuccessful hunt for the defendant. His desire to shoot and kill consumed him every time he left his home."

On the other hand, legit self-defense cases can still wipe out an honest person's finances. As for me, I wouldn't hold it against somebody who had taken this precautionary step. Others might not see it that way.
