CCW

I carry a gun.  Off duty, on duty, at work, at church, at the store, at the movies, shopping, driving, walking.  If I leave the house I always take a gun with me.  I serve the altar at my church and when I am there I am carrying a gun.

We cannot predict when we will be involved in a traffic collision.  As a result, we wear our seat belt for every trip in the car, no matter how short.  I cannot predict when I will be involved in a shoot out and so I carry a gun all the time, every day.

Criminals are everywhere the general population is at, they are indoors and outdoors.  In the last year we have read about shootings at churches, supermarkets, movie theaters.  All of those places were once thought safe, no longer.  Carry your gun all the time; that's what the SGT Says.

is carrying an 'option'?

Individual states and individual agencies set their own standards. About half of the reserve officers where I work are authorized to carry off duty and most do, but some don't. All our regular full time officers are authorized and some do, some don't. The reserves who are not authorized are still in part of their training period and will be authorized when their training is done.
