If you enjoy being a victim, and it helps you to sleep better at night thinking that someone who carries a firearm is a "wussy"
I've never understood this mentality but I'm thinking people with this mentality are so brainwashed into believing guns are inherently evil that they actually confuse law abiding gun owners with gun toting criminals who are cowards that use their weapons to assert power and instill fear.
For anyone who isn't a criminal carrying a firearm is a huge responsibility and the consequences of having to use it are monumental both legally and dealing with the fact that you killed someone (not all people who get shot die but usually they do), in fact it can be a huge risk to even carry it legally because of all these weird Gun-Free Zone laws (my state in particular being terrible).
Lets put lawful carry in another light; a mother has to walk to and from work every night in a dark city full of meth heads and rapists that will do anything to get their next fix and she has had a couple close calls so she applies for a conceal carry permit and now she carries a Smith & Wesson .38 Special. Is that mother now automatically a coward because she has a equalizing means of self defense now, or would it be preferable for her to not be a "coward" right in the morgue and her kids in the foster care system?
Or what about the woman that receives death threats from her former boyfriend? Is she a coward for wanting to defend herself against someone much bigger and stronger than her?
Legal concealed carriers are not cowards, and open carriers (where legal) are probably even less so.
