Concealed Carry Facts Every Gun Enthusiast Should Know

 

Gun Safety Comes First

A single thoughtless mistake can put you in a really bad situation if you’re not careful. Guns are dangerous if not treated with respect, but what’s more dangerous than the weapon itself is the person carrying it.

You gotta be in total control and avoid putting yourself in an unnecessary position that will force you to run out of options. The idea here is to use your weapon only to defend yourself. Firearm safety is our number one concern.

As a gun owner, I feel like it’s never enough to have a gun around to keep my family safe. Sometimes, things just happen that are beyond our control.

However, carrying a gun is never enough. Sometimes, carrying a gun can turn a bad situation around, or it can worsen things. This is why concealed carry has always been a hot topic for debate.

While there are benefits to hiding a gun within your person, there’s still the issue of personal safety. With that said, I’d be delighted to share a few concealed carry facts that may have been twisted.

I’m not going to start a debate here. Recent crimes about shooting have greatly influenced the public mind to the point of ignoring the needed results of implementing the right to carry guns.

Mass Killings Were Avoided with the Help of Armed Civilians

Numerous reports tell of civilians with concealed weapons saving the day against mass shootings. One incident in the Appalachian School of Law reported two men rushing to their vehicles to get their guns. They were able to prevent a mass murder from happening.

    As the NRA Stated…”Only a Good Guy with a Gun can STOP a Bad Guy with a Gun! This is basic logic, but the now Communist/DemoRat/NWO Party does not use logic in any conversation, they just LIE and LIE and LIE to the American People and the World..!!! And not just about Guns and Gun Safety, but they LIE about Global Warming, which is not happening, they LIE DAILY, even HOURLY, about our New President Trump (who has done more for our Nation in one week than Obama did in 8 years in office), if a Commie/DemoRatNWO/Liberal has their mouth open they are LYING to “We the People”…PERIOD..!!! You think, how could anyone support these LYING Commie/NWO/DemoRat Monsters? The Mental Health Community answered that question 2 years ago…The Liberal Mindset is a form of insanity, and that said it all…They are insane/Crazy People, that’s why logic has no effect on them…they are NUTS! God help us, PLEASE!

  2. Dave Harris says:

    Right on USPatriotOne, The libs don’t ever learn. When the violence breaks out, what’s the first thing you do? Call the Police. Why? they have guns. I’m a veteran that’s been carrying concealed for 32 years. I’ve only unholstered my weapon once. The Only good guy with a gun doesn’t work for liberals cuz there is no such thing as a good guy to them, just another wacko with a gun. Don’t let the liberals fool ya, the first time they have a loaded weapon stuck in their face, if they survive, they will be looking to purchase a gun. If not that just shows how stupid they are.

  3. Edward Olivares says:

    Better to always have a concealed gun in Your possession and never ever to need it, than to need it just once and not have it. In that unique case You may lose your life, or lose the life of a loved on, friend, or stranger whom You could have saved if You had the concealed weapon!

  4. Larry says:

    The best way for a bad man or woman to continue to do bad things is for a good man to do nothing. Good responsible people who carry can and will be the deterrent to those who seek to harm and kill innocent’s.
