Let’s break down exactly why you should have a concealed carry permit and why you should trust your instincts on this matter.
The Importance of Having a Concealed Carry Permit
In this day and age, with much of the media dominated by liberal discourse, it’s easy to get discouraged if you’re interested in acquiring a concealed carry permit.
People always seem to be shouting that no one needs these permits and that getting a license to carry a weapon surreptitiously is a waste of time and money, but nothing could be further from the truth.
A Permit Lets You Carry In Other States
Some states, like Texas, allow you to open or concealed carry practically any weapon you like but not all states are this free from gun control legislation.
In fact, many states, like Arizona, require any non-residents to have a permit for concealed carry even if their own residents don’t need one.
In a nutshell, having a permit is important if you want to carry in multiple states and not have to worry about breaking the law by accident.
It Provides Peace of Mind
Whether or not this factor matters a lot to you depends on your personality and whether want to keep folks calm.
Some people get jittery around guns, sometimes, for valid reasons.
Regardless, obtaining a concealed carry permit means that you went through the necessary background checks and were cleared by the government.
If ever anyone feels unsure about you, you can produce the permit and otherwise remind them that you’ve nothing to hide and they have nothing to worry about.
This is true even in states where you don’t need a permit to carry.
A Permit Shows Your Law-Abiding Nature
Most gun owners pride themselves on how well they follow the law.
Having a concealed carry permit protects you from any accusations of unlawfulness or from gun control nuts that might try to get police officers to question you about your weapon.
If you have a permit, there’s nothing they can do and you demonstrate your morality.
After all, you’re following the law to the letter.
This is also really important if you’re ever at a protest or something similar and get arrested temporarily.
If you have a permit, that’s one less thing that the feds can pin on you or take you to prison for.
Think of a concealed carry permit as a legal shield that prevents you from getting in trouble for exercising your American rights.
Having a Concealed Carry Weapon Can be Important for Self-Defense
Naturally, having any handgun on you is necessary for self-defense, particularly against home intruders, muggers, and the like.
But some states don’t allow open carrying, flat-out, no matter how well such weapons might be against violent individuals.
In these states, you might still feel that it’s important to have a handgun for your own self-defense needs.
But the only way to get a handgun and keep it on you at all times is to have a concealed carry permit.
In this way, a concealed carry permit is a ticket to 24/7 personal security and safety.
If you have a family or loved ones you might want to protect when in public, this is even more important.
Be Able to Carry Anywhere
In the end, not everyone will desire a concealed carry permit, nor will they necessarily see the need to go through the time-consuming and laborious background check or pay the required fees.
But concealed carry permits carry lots of advantages and allow you to stay armed almost everywhere – an advantage that none of us should discount these days.

So, you like gun control and gun Grabbing Liberal Politician. As far as you don’t like Trump. He’s saving your Ass at your Freedom. You don’t have to like someone but if you believe he’s not good for the Country? You think the Liberals are good for your Country. There’s definitely something wrong with you. What do you suggest a more Party system? Don’t hold your breath. 2020 is a tipping point for Liberty and Freedom. It sounds to me that your a Red Diaper Doper Baby that was a Hillary

I am too scared not to vote for him.
If Trump loses the election this year you will have no Guns. The socialist government will take them away. Dofuss.
You’ll find Biden/Harris a lot harder to deal with than Trump. Harris is an extreme anti-gunner.
Do you have any, any idea what President Trump has done for this country in the time he has been our president? I can tell you don’t. He has accomplished more in these three years than any other president has. You could enlighten yourself by doing a little fact-finding before you are so critical of what you know nothing about.
I Went through the whole process of getting my license and buying a handgun , I can’t not take my gun home because of the FBI background check ,,,still waiting 6 months later .HELP
It took me almost 2 years for the background check and out and then one day I get a letter of reparation with a clean background check. I thought it was unfair and I hired a Lawyer and got a reversal. So it cost me over a grand to get my permit. The Liberal Democrat Governor Big Fredo Cuomo has got to go.
sounds like its time to move out of new york.

THERE’S A BACK GROUND CHECK BACK LOG NOW
BECAUSE I KNOW PEOPLE WHO AT ONE TIME HATED GUNS
BUT SINCE THIS CHINESE COMMUNISTS CORANVIRUS PANDEMIC
AND NOW WITH ALL THESE BLACK LIVES MATTERS AND ANTIFA RIOTS

WELL NOW EVEN PEOPLE
AT ONE TIME THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY AND TOTALLY AGAINST PEOPLE OWNING GUNS
ARE ABSOLUTELY NOW THE VERY SAME PEOPLE
WHO ARE BUYING UP GUNS AND AMMO
BECAUSE NOW EVERYONE CAN PLANELY SEE
THAT THE POLICE ABSOLUTELY CANNOT PROTECT THEM
SO IN MY OPINION WITH ALL THESE RIOTS AND WANTING TO DEFUND THE POLICE
ALL THESE ONCE GUN CONTROL NUT JOBS
ARE NOW HAVING A WHOLE NEW OUT LOOK ON GUN CONTROL LAWS
AND THEY ABSOLUTELY SEE WHAT ALL AMERICAN PATRIOTS HAVE KNOWN FOR DECADE’S AND DECADE’S AN DECADE’S NOW

AND NOW THESE FORMER GUN CONTROL NUT JOBS
ARE FINALLY SEEING THIS FIRST HAND NOW
ESPECIALLY IN THE LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC LEFTIST SOCIALIST MARXIST COMMUNISTS STATES AND CITIES THEY LIVE IN
SO THIS MAY BE WHY YOU ARE HAVING TO WAIT THIS LONG TO BE ABLE TO GET YOUR WEAPONS
BECAUSE OF ALL THE NEW ONCE LIBERAL GUN CONTROL NUT JOBS
NOW ARE THE ONE’S WHO ARE NOW BUYING GUNS AND AMMO
HOPE YOU GET YOUR LICENSE
Amen I couldn’t have started the truth any better. Bravo sir !!!
very good to hear that
Last picture in article! Holy Crap – trigger safety, no holster? Going to shoot his butt off! Why use that photo?
I haven’t pursued getting a C/C permit. My reasoning being that that list is a ready source for the gun grabbers in the event that legislation is ever changed.
Is this false reasoning because of ‘gun ownership requirements’?
Trump is one of the best pres. We have ever had. If he is not re-elected you will have wasted time and money on gun carrier permit because you an’t gona get to keep it.
id love to have a ccp but in new york its impossible the real saying is when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will carry guns. And its a damn shame.
i am a law abiding citizen and new york would rather have gang members and the left have hand guns the 2 ammendment says the right bear arms, it doesnt say the right to bear rifles and shot guns. The right to bear arms also includes pistols but its just another contradiction. America was greater a hundred years ago, now its like a third wirld.
Piss poor Pelosi is only trying to hold Joe up as a puppet. Her goal is to create. Plutocracy, where the wealthy control the government. Soros is the money man behind this. He fancies himself a Russian oligarch. I wouldn’t be surprised if ole Joe died suddenly, “if elected “ . They will turn our nation into a socialist hell hole. Kamala has every intention of taking away our gun rights. Then the elderly and terminally ill will be refused healthcare. They will be considered a waste of their money. If all these Liberal idiots, and they have to be idiots, don’t see what is up with Pelosi, Schumer, Waters and Pelosi then they will have taken a part in the destruction of our Nation! We will be another war torn country just like the rest of the world. Trump is a very intelligent man and has constantly taken a beating from the media and the Dumbocrats. But what is great about him, he doesn’t give one shit what they think about him. He tells it like it is so he we know where he stands. HE STANDS FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! The rest just stand for profit and power.
Have seen many President’s (continue to apply a lower case P for ‘president’ Hussein Obama, please) come and go since growing up in the ‘I Like Ike’ day’s. Most have failed to impress besides President Ronald Reagan (enjoyed watching his ‘fireside chats’) and our current President Donald Trump (truly do enjoy his forthright honesty and pro-America attitude)!
Also woefully underwhelmed with the glaring lack of accountability, honesty, and responsibility, of not all, but seemingly the apparent majority of our Nation’s so called Legislative ‘representative’ Branch of the Government elected (supposedly) to SERVE We the People. Not difficult to attribute what we’re experiencing these day’s to their blatantly inept, self-serving, actions and attitudes!
Supposing same will only continue to worsen so long as spending million’s of dollars for election’s to offices with NO TERM LIMITS was, is, and continues to be, the norm!
Kennedy said Americans should be armed to defend our country in time of need. Trump wants to preserve our second amendment. Today we have Democrat’s out of control! Lies and little feelings for We The People. This is why Americans should unite for term limits to avoid all this ill will!!! Wake up people, if a President is only good for eight years then ALL should be the same! Look at THEIR health care!! The BEST! Look at THEIR vacations, look at THEIR retirement benefits!!! Am I the only one who sees this??????????
