Twenty-four seven.

In the February 2012 "Letters," reader James Keenan takes issue with Patrick Sweeney's statement that all unattended firearms must be unloaded and locked up. So would I, as an absolute. Circumstances vary, as do appropriate responses. But I must take issue with Mr. Keenan's characterization of carrying at all times as "extreme" or "uncomfortable." If I am awake but undressed, my robe has a small handgun, a tactical flashlight and a small folding knife (because I find myself constantly using knives). This too, is logical and comfortable. Trouble often knocks at odd hours; it's foolish to be unarmed simply because one just got up or is preparing for shower or bed. I you can carry comfortably for hours, then you can do so all the time. It just makes sense.
