Why I started carrying.

I use to drive an overnight delivery truck, just a pickup truck with a box. I never felt my job was dangerous until after a couple of Instances, neither were an assault or threat. The first time I opened a door to a shop I delivered to, I was followed in by a guy wanting a ride. I have no clue where he came from, I didn't notice anyone around. I would have been cornered if he were a thug.

The second time several months later, I was minutes behind an intruder who had broken into the another store I delivered to. I didn't think much about the door being open wide, but before I a got the papers ready and stepped out of the truck I was being approached by three police cars, lights flashing. Luckily they knew of me and my truck, I think I met everyone of them from being questioned about once a week when we first delivered to this account.

Anyway after this I decided to get a CCW, and boy did awareness increase. I was wondering, if anyone here had a circumstance such as mine and decided it was time to get a CCW permit?
Is there any hope for a person, who is brainwashed to the point of believing that bearing arms is responsible for a violent disposition in the human psyche? -me
