Again, it's sad

that only criminals can walk into a place that serves alcohol carrying a handgun. So I decide to take the family downtown, you know "Bring It!", and have a nice dinner. Then maybe walk down to the river front and take in the night air. And start our trek back to the minivan. It's dark. It's just a couple or few blocks up the street. Of course there are signs about no weapons on the parking deck so that's out. But I should feel good knowing that I DIDN'T DRINK and my pistol is SAFE IN THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT OF THE MINIVAN! Because I value my right and privilege to carry a concealed weapon I give up the right to protect myself and my family during this outing! Please point me to the statistics but did the murder rate go up since the last CCW legislation was passed here in NC? And I mean going up being DIRECTLY related to the passing of this legislation. Again, it's sad. Sad that criminals have a leg up on people that are law abiding AND THEY KNOW IT. So I try to be aware. I try to somehow "plan" for a "situation" in my mind. I at least can carry my knife but you know what they say about bringing a knife to a gun fight... . It's sad.
