<div>I recently met an avid proponent of gun control while hiking a section of the cdt. That is easy to be if you are an unattractive guy with no outward signs of wealth. As a female solo hiker who grew up in the Adirondack mountains during David Garro's reign

<div>I also frequently get asked if I carry a gun and my answer is always "of course ".  I know that the people asking are only concerned for my safety. </div>

Not necessarily so.  If you shoot a bear with the RIGHT gun in the RIGHT place, it'll be dead.  And you'll probably spend at least a week trying to explain the "authorities" why you shot it.  A week is a lot of hiking time to be spending on paperwork. 
<br>
RIGHT gun - is one that's heavier than you want to carry. <br>
The RIGHT place - isn't visible if you're being charged by the bear. <br>
OTOH - it IS legal to carry the gun, just not advisable.  Or smart. <br>
Also - the question (Are you carrying a gun?) has probably been asked of every thruhiker in history.  Multiple times.  Deal with it.

Montana bear handgun joke:<br>
<br>
Q: What's the perfect handgun to shoot a bear with?<br>
A: One that's greased up and sights removed.  That way after you shoot <br>
the bear, when the bear takes the gun away from you and shoves it up <br>
your a**, it doesn't hurt so much.<br>
