This is one of the reasons why I didn’t back Drejka for shooting McGlockton. He seemed to be a guy looking for a reason to use his CCW.
He was causing problems on that parking lot for months. He had already been involved in one fight on the lot, and the police were called.
If I’m carrying with a CCW permit, I’m not taking actions to offend others. I’m minding my own business. If something comes up I didn’t egg on, I’ll use my weapon to save lives if I can. It won’t have been something I played a contributing factor to cause.
Drejka was a potential flashpoint for the anti stand your ground folks and also those who wail again CCW permits.
He did none of us who support the Second Amendment any favors.
I am one of them, but only because the second amendment should be the only permit I need. If you (not YOU you) can't be trusted to be armed you should not be running around loose.
My philosophy on my CCW is that my gun is the last line of defense. If I can get out of/away from the problem, I'm gone.
If I'm caught up in something or some one else is in serious jeopardy, then the CCW is in play. But only as a last resort.
