Your open packing guest's denial of fear as a reason for packing was contradicted in his very next sentence. My dad carries a concealed weapon and he will never tell you that it is because he is fearful. It is not a "manly" reason. But a longer conversation with him will tell you that it is fear that motivates him to carry. I think you will find that a majority of carriers would associate themselves with republican/conservative political leanings. Studies have shown that those that associate with those political leanings are more fearful of the unknown and change. Fear. I can understand it, I just don't relate as much to that way of living.
