Are You Carrying Today? Well, Why The Hell Not? I met a man of Middle Eastern descent today. He was Catholic. He was stopped by a law enforcement officer. He handed the officer his driver’s license and his concealed carry permit. The officer asked him: “Are you carrying today?” The gentleman told him that he was not. The officer replied: “Well, why the hell not?” He made the extension himself: “Only in Texas!” This is a true story! The gentleman is a a transplant from up north via service as a U.S. Marine.
