With everything going on lately the topic of concealed carry has been on my mind alot. I find it almost laughable that so many people don’t understand how concealed carry can be such a valuable thing, especially in light of recent events.
I’ve had my license to conceal carry for over 5 years now and on more occasions than I’d like to admit I’ve left my gun at home for one reason or another, usually some reason that boiled down to me just being lazy. But again, in light of recent events its led me to see how important it is to make sure I carry at all times, to be prepared to defend myself, my family or whoever might need protection.
I’m putting out a call to everyone who can carry a firearm, to do so. There is just far to many things in this world that can catch us off guard and we need to be ready at all times to deal with these situations.
Maybe its just me but I can’t see our forefathers finding themselves in a situation where a group of hundreds of people gathered together can so easily be gunned down and not a single person has a firearm to help defend themselves and others.
To me it seems naive and irresponsible to assume that there is no need to worry about the evil in the world and assume that the police will be there to protect us.
We have to stand up and take responsibility for ourselves and those around us and be ready to defend and protect from the evil in the world.
Why is it that so many people feel safe when they see a police officer carrying a gun but the sight of a citizen carrying a gun ready to defend himself or herself and those around them, when they’re not being paid to do so, why is that such a strange or for some people horrible sight?
Imagine if everyone around you, everywhere you went had the mindset and mentality that if something happened that not only were they mentally ready to help deal with the situation but they had the means to do so as well ….. ie: they carried a firearm. Imagine how safe and protected you’d feel. Thats the world I want to live in.
So I encourage everyone who can carry to carry at all times, be ready and encourage others to be ready as well. We only have ourselves to depend on and we need to be the examples of what a true citizen is, we need to be the ones who are capable of standing up when bad things happen and make the choice to defend ourselves and others!
