As a law abiding citizen I’m glad to see that the second amendment (and my pistol permit) allow me to carry a firearm legally.  Here are some important reasons why being armed in the event your life is in danger is so critically important.

  • Criminals attack when the police are not present and when there are no police in sight.  This leaves you alone to fend for yourself if attacked.
  • Criminals target individuals they believe they can overpower; so when an intended victim draws a gun in a defensive manner, the criminal quickly realizes that the target has the potential to stop them immediately.
  • Are criminals afraid of law abiding citizens with guns?  Absolutely.
  • When you are attacked, it is your right and responsibility to defend yourself.
  • Police rarely stop crime from taking place but instead investigate violent offenses after they have occurred.
  • Violent death at the hands of a criminal is one thing you can’t do over.
  • Better to have a gun and not need it then need a gun and not have it.
  • If you are about to become the victim of a violent crime ask yourself the following.  Do I have time to reach a phone and dial 911 before being attacked?  If I reach the police; how long will it take the police to arrive if an attack is imminent?  

These statements and more; are just some of the reasons why it is essential, that law abiding citizens need to make sure that their rights to legally own firearms are not usurped.  As I’ve stated in previous posts firearms training and proper practice at a gun range is recommended for those who choose to legally own firearms.

    That’s how I feel. I would hate to ever have to draw my weapon and use it to defend my life, but I wouldn’t hesitate if I needed to…

      I agree. It’s also the one time someone who regularly carries one and decides I think I won’t take it with me today; that’s the time when a person might be most likely to need it for self defense.

  3. I love this article. My favorite part is the part about training. I believe firearms training should be taught in schools or at the very least there should be free to anyone who needs/wants it. I received a lot of my firearms training in the US Marine Corps and it’s one of the many things I learned many years ago that I keep with me.

      Thank you for your service. I picked up mine many years ago as a Navy Seabee. I think we are so politically correct these days that the mere mention of a gun in school causes educators to go into a panic. But I do agree firearms training should be taught to all law abiding individuals who want the training.
