When I carry my weapon, yes it is a weapon I carry for 1 reason and that is to protect my family, friends and myself. If in the unfortunate event I have to draw and fire my weapon. Then hopefully I will STOP any person or persons ie: criminals. If they choose to die that is not my fault, my intent is to defend those that I care about and those that cannot defend themselves. In my state it is a conceal carry holders RESPONSIBILITY to, if possible protect those that are in mortal danger. Again I say DAMN the warning shot.
