i cary a gun for the same reason I put my seat belt on in a car. If I do not need it there is no harm in having it but if I do need it and and don't have it I am are rather screwed. As to why I cary a gun rather then a knife as someone once said "God made man Sam Colt made them equal" size and strength dose not matter in a gun fight, also no one ever wins a knife fight best case every one is cut up, worst case every one bleeds out.
