Do you carry firearms while cruising?

I don't even own a BB gun, but just wonder if any of you carry guns while cruising to unfamiliar ports?

What kind do you carry? handgun, shotgun, machine gun?
Where ?
1. when cruising within U.S. water?
2. Caribbean?
3. Around the world?

I have met a sailor who circumnavigated the world a few times in his 17 years living in his boat. He told me that he never carry firearms. He said guns bring more trouble with the local authority. But the time has changed. How to protect yourself and your love ones.
