Glad you responded

And very happy if I was wrong. I just re-read your original post and I hope you can see why I was alarmed (and looking at the numbers, why 7 other Hoos were alarmed as well) by your stated reason for wanting to get a CC permit: "As to why now, I can deal with shortages of many things, but if it comes to fuel or food that I’ve waited in line for no one is taking my place." That doesn't sound like defusing a situation. So I appreciate your response.

I live in a place where an earthquake at some point (tomorrow or in 500 years) is capable of taking out highways, bridges, the port, the airport, and potentially the electric grid, gas and water, leaving hundreds of thousands of us pretty much on our own for an extended period. I like to think I'm realistic about the ways that could play out and have taken steps to prepare.

FWIW, I worked in the criminal justice system in a past life and in my (admittedly mostly after-the-fact) experience, showing or pulling a gun almost always escalates a situation, regardless of intentions.
