I have a deep concealment holster. Sort of a waistband with a gun pouch that sits right in front of your junk. If trouble is in the wind I don't give two s#$%s about the law or a "Gun free zone" I'll be alive to get fired from my job and acquitted by the Grand Jury.
You can avoid trouble all you want if it wants to find you it will. No one can tell you when to act or when to hold back. You must be ready to do either. And when the time comes make the call.
Anyone that starts out with the party line of avoid trouble , counter force with peace , a trained freighter avoids force, force should be avoided at all cost.
Speed , Surprise and Violence of action.
Speed in making the call once you do hit fast
Surprise don't let them know it is coming
Violence of action.... go nuts on them go full blown Mel Gibson nuts on them till it is over
The force is not with you it is a movie theory and not real Bruce Lee was an actor.
I am not alive to today because of any of that BS about avoid redirect the negative energy stuff.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.

If you're from Illinois and are in a gun free zone, you have nothing to worry about. Everyone knows that in a gun free zone, you as safe as though you were in your mother's arms. While I joke about this kind of crap, I take your situation personally. All part of the reason I got out of Illinois. Sometimes you're just screwed. I agree with csi.
The better part of valor is to avoid the fight and live to fight another day. However when cornered with no option or placed in a situation were force is the only option be swift and decisive in or actions. These actions should be instinctive by nature, this comes from training and forethought as to how far one is willing to go.
Situational awareness is important.
