Why Now, Here?

Was wasting a bit of time with my family and my brother’s family at a, shudder, mall yesterday. I had found a few pair of jeans and took them to the checkout counter. My brother was somewhat horrified and asked “What? You’re not going to try them on first?” I shook my head with a “nah…” and we headed out. I quietly explained that I was carrying and that the dressing rooms aren’t exactly a discreet place to be changing in and out of concealed holster rig. He wanted to know why I was carrying in a mall of all places. Of course, I explained that you never know when somebody is going to try and jack you. He then asked if I carried all the time and I answered in the affirmative. Again, I got a “Why?” “Brother, because I can. It is my right. I hope to never clear leather in anger to protect my family or myself. But I will if needed because it is my right and obligation.” I was also kinda smug in the knowledge that my own brother hasn’t spotted my gun in years.
