Some thoughts

I also carry a handgun with me when I go out. I carry it for protection in the hopes of never having to use it. But with a wife and children, I will do what is necessary to protect my family. I used to carry the weapon in my vehicle, but with all the break-ins I felt it was more safe to carry it on me than leave it in my vehicle. I have one advice for those that carry concealed weapons....PRACTICE. You need to practice taking that weapon out of your holster. If you don't and you are ever in the situation where you need it, you won't be able to pull it out. When I'm bored at the house, I will sometimes put my weapon on like I would when I go out and practice pulling it out and shooting at a certain location on the wall. That way, if an incident were to ever come about where I had to use my weapon, I would be able to do it without thinking about it. You might think it's overboard, but it can never hurt to practice. Those that carry weapons do need to realize where they can and cannot carry them. For instance, it is illegal to take them into any even that charges a fee, like the movies or the fair. Also, any business that says you aren't allowed to carry them, you can't. It's the right of the business owner. I don't remember seeing any signs at the Mall saying you can't carry any weapons, but I would check before heading inside.
