Carry everyday. You dont get to pick when crime occurs, how it happens, or why. All you can do is ensure you have the means to defend yourself when it does.
UPDATE: We have crews at 2 scenes. Police say a man was shot at this 7/11, later died at the hospital.

WSOCTV reports that the customer felt a deadly threat after one of the teen suspects pointed a gun in his face and robbed him. Police said that customer then fired his own legally carried weapon, hitting both suspects.
“Everybody has to make their own decision on whether their life is in danger or not,” CMPD Sgt. Brian Scharf said. “He had a concealed carry permit, was lawfully permitted to carry a firearm inside the store, which is probably why they didn’t know he had a weapon.”
A short time later, police said they found Harris on Saratoga Drive, which is about 2-miles away from the gas station.
Officers said his injuries were not serious, and he was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police said a legally armed customer shot two robbery suspects inside a gas station in northwest Charlotte early Thursday morning, killing one of them.
The shooting happened just before 4 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Brookshire Boulevard at Lawton Road.
Police said that when they got to the gas station, they found 16-year-old Qwanterrius Stafford inside with a gunshot wound. He was taken to Atrium Health Carolina’s Medical Center, where he died.
On Thursday afternoon, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said the shooting started after Stafford and another teenage suspect, 17-year-old Brenna Harris, entered the gas station, wearing masks and armed with a gun, and went after a customer in the store, demanding belongings.
Then, the suspects…
