I'd suggest once again that you research how many times people use concealed weapons to protect their lives. There are thousands of cases in this country every year. Here's but one, from April of this year:
Joe Denard was stopped in his car at an intersection when a man wearing a red bandana tapped on the window and pointed a gun at him. Big mistake. Joe, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew a handgun and opened fire through the window, striking his assailant twice in the chest. The carjacker, who had just been released from state prison last November, ran a short distance and then died. (The Ledger, Lakeland, Fla., 04/06/11)
Now, if you think that couldn't happen in the parking lot at a little league game in Wilmington, you're a fool.
As far as trusting in God, I'd suggest that you recall the old joke about "I sent two boats and a helicopter after your dumb a**." God doesn't expect us to be sheep and lie down for those threatening our lives. God helps those who help themselves. The concept of self defense is well established in Exodus.
So you go on "thinking better of your fellow man," and I'll be prepared for whatever happens.
