I’m staunchly pro-gun. I believe in the old saying “God made man but Sam Colt made them all equal”. There really is nothing else on earth that can make a physically weaker man or woman the equal (in force) of a larger or more powerful person than a firearm. I also believe that sometimes deadly force is necessary. It’s not a nice thing to realize but it’s true. Some people just can’t accept that. I would rather have my gun and not need it than NEED it and NOT have it. I think self-defense is EVERYONE’S right….and really it’s our duty. The police cant be everywhere and usually they come too late. And that’s not an attack on them. As an individual you MUST take some responsibility for your own defense (as well as your loved ones). I have a Life-Time Carry License in the state I live in. My state doesn’t specify concealed or open carry modes. To avoid a LOT of hassle both from a fearful public and some over-zealous cops that are somewhat ignorant of the very laws they are supposed to be upholding I choose to carry concealed when I’m not on my own property.
My current carry gun is a Smith and Wesson Shield 9mm. I have two of them.
