When three men tried to steal his truck a few months ago, he said, he scared them off with his wife’s handgun; he had left his assault rifles in the garage. But, he said, “If I had to defend myself and my family, there’s no question I would choose my assault rifle. No question I’d want a 30-round magazine.”
Mr. Walker added, “In a defensive situation, not every bullet is going to find its target."
It doesn't take a mental giant to wrap your mind around the notion that people who go through the trouble of getting a gun license are fundamentally law-abiding people.
Anyway, about the point of thinking daily gun carry is excessive... well, how can you predict when you'll need a gun? You never know. So infrequent carry is would seem to be statistically useless for the sort of protection you are describing. You can be attacked on the bus, at a party, in a club, at home, walking down the street, ...oops, you stayed a bit too late at a friends house, now it's dark and you have to walk around Greenlake. Didn't bring your gun because you didn't think you'd be out late? well, no protection for you!
