Many people feel the need to carry a weapon of some sort to help keep them safe. What they might not realize is that the need to feel safe could eventually lead them to face some type of criminal charge because of it. They might not even think about what might happen, but it is a chance they take.
Many people think that they need to carry a weapon for personal protection. This is perfectly understandable, but you must ensure that you are following the law so that you don't face criminal charges for carrying the weapon. We know that this is a difficult spot to be placed in, especially when you thought you were doing things within the bounds of the law.
Part of owning a gun is being responsible with it. You have to ensure that you know the current laws so that you don't break them.

People often try to defend themselves against assault allegations by saying they never touched the person. They never hurt them. No one suffered any injuries.
The AR-15 is one of the most common and popular rifles in the country, but it is also one of the most controversial. Some have called for "assault weapons" like the AR-15 to be banned. They are designed along similar lines as military weapons -- they're auto-loaders, for instance, with a semi-automatic firing system -- and they have large-capacity magazines.
Brass knuckles, as the name implies, are traditionally made of metal. They saw a lot of exposure in combat in the early part of the last century -- in both world wars -- and metal designs were tough and easy to produce. In many cases, they were actually attached to other weapons, like knives. They were a last resort for soldiers in a close-quarters battle.
Florida's "stand your ground" law gives wide latitude to those who defend themselves using deadly force when they believe that they are in imminent danger. But it is not a license to kill.
