It would be a bother to have to go to a conceal carry class, then spend a ridiculous sum of money buying a gun, then you need ammo for it, perhaps training to know how to use it, have the ability to store it safely when not carrying it, buy a holster and then have to put the stupid thing on every time you go out. All to prevent something that, statistically speaking, will probably never happen.
As Celery said, to each their own. Just not worth the bother to me as I'm not paranoid enough. I might feel different if I lived in downtown Detroit or someplace like that but, thankfully, I don't.
My problem is that I think logically and actually did well in math at school. That's why I don't need to carry a concealed weapon or need to worry about having armed guards at our schools and I also don't play the lottery. The odds of these things happening are just so far out there that they aren't worth worrying about. You would probably be in much more danger driving in your car to and from the conceal carry class than you'd ever be from an armed attacker yet most of us don't give it a second thought when we jump in our cars and drive off.
