This morning my uncle was the almost victim of a car jacking. He has always had a carry & conceal license and always has a gun on his person (including family events etc.) He defended himself and walked away without any injuries.

(BTW, a few "facts" are incorrect in the linked story. The gun was not in the car but on his body. The house was occupied and the homeowners were asleep. The suspect is in critical condition.)

That must be awkward during sex.

Maybe for my aunt but I am not one to have sex with my uncle (or any other family members).

Why would you think anyone would assume you would? or that it was even suggested in the post?

On the other hand, not weird for me. Something about cold steel on my thigh that I find reassuring.

Well, carjacking is a completely non-existent crime here in this entire NATION where nobody carries guns for personal protection and nobody I know would ever wish to.

Ha! So funny.

But what Mark really meant was detailed in the story... New Zealand doesn't have an official crime known as "carjacking". Therefore, it doesn't exist. People taking your car using a knife, gun or bottle are not carjackers... they're angry men who need a lift somewhere.

I remember some old guys in a Dennys prevented an armed robbery back when I was in college. Florida has had concealed carry since I can remember, and that knowledge does kind of give one pause, even if it's just a matter of avoiding allowing an argument to escalate toward a fight.

I remember when we got concealed carry here. Everyone was freaking out over it, and I was surprised. I honestly thought it was everywhere.

Cool that your uncle is okay. How is he doing with the fact that he shot somebody? Is he a little freaked?

He's very freaked out. He is devout Catholic and this is not an event in his life that he is comfortable with in any way. My aunt and uncle are actually now staying with relatives out of fear of going home. (Also trying to avoid the media.)
