168. And if you're foolish enough to go without a gun,
at least be honest about it. Don't rely on the herd immunity provided by the CCW laws. Have a few t-shirts made up with a picture of a gun with a circle-slash through it and 3 inch letters stating I am UNARMED on one side and I OPPOSE VIOLENCE IN SELF DEFENSE on the other. And on one you could do "Please don't rob me-I'm unarmed but I understand your plight!"

Because otherwise, you're taking advantage of those folks who put in the work to carry concealed, got the background check, invested in the firearm and training to use it. And by your not advertising that you're one of those people, you directly benefit from CC laws. The bad guys are a little more hesitant to rob people if they live in a state with a high concentration of CCW carriers.

So man up and be honest about your unarmed status. Otherwise, maybe insinuating that carriers are stupid should find more limited use in your repertoire.
