Responsibility

From an excellent treatise on Nuclear Combat:

The only people who mouth off about using nuclear weapons and threaten others with them are those that do not have keys hanging around their necks.

I’ve had a very similar experience with firearms.  The only ones who mouth off about shooting people over minor disagreements are people who don’t carry guns.  When you conceal a weapon on your person, your mindset changes.  You know that you bear the responsibility of potentially ending someone’s life.  And you know that you are not the only one with that responsibility.
