Yes there is. You aren't trusting God to protect you. You are trusting in his will. If it is his will that you die in a mugging then your gun will not protect you. If it is his will that no harm come to you, your gun is unnecessary. So by bringing it "Just in Case" shows your lack of faith in his will. You mean to try and prevent his will if it is for you to die in a mugging... and you mean to hedge your bets just in case he doesn't protect you. It demonstrates a clear lack of faith in God.

The Lord knows I will defend myself if I have to, but I think He takes care of that for me beforehand.
Then carrying a gun is doubting his providence.
