The answer is a resounding ‘YES’, whether you keep a gun in your vehicle when you are out and about, have one in your house for home protection, open carry, or legally carry concealed with a permit.
You never know when you might find yourself in a predicament where you fear for your life and there is no reasonable way out; forced to defend yourself and/or your loved ones.
Even if it is determined by law enforcement and the prosecutor that the shooting was 100% justified, free and clear you will still likely incur defense costs.
On top of that, what if the victim or his/her family decides to sue you civilly?
Don’t risk losing your home, your savings, your kids’ college tuition, your retirement, your family’s ‘nest-egg’ to cover attorney fees.
