I have no fear at all of guns. I neither own nor carry at this time. I have shot hand guns competitively. I was a Hunter Safety instructor and examiner in two provinces here in Canada. Guns were something I used to put meat in teh freezer or were for shooting at the range.
Me, personally, I know of no one who has needed a firearm while cruising on board in Canada nor in the US of A. I do know personally those who have needed a fire extinguisher.
If someone were to steal (or try to steal) my dingy or outboard, it would never cross my mind to shoot them (or at them). Its only a thing.
So - as long as you keep them in control and don't aim them in my direction (and you are in your own country) feel free to carry or not.
