Top 8 Reasons to Get a Concealed Weapons Permit
Give these murderous nuts a taste of their own medicine.
Imagine you had enough training, skills, and knowledge to take out the Batman shooter or the guy who shot up the Sikh temple. Its ridiculous to think that in both areas, lives could have been saved if the criminal wasn’t the only guy with a gun.
Seriously, I want you to look at this page and look at all the lives that could have been saved by having a concealed carry permit and enough training to use a firearm effectively.
Criminals don’t like to tangle with people who are armed.
Criminals are cowards! They are much likely to attack someone they believe might have a firearm on them. The individual who carries a concealed firearm receives the benefits as well as the general public – the more armed the community is, the more likely a criminal will be deterred.
Cops aren’t enough.
The average response time for police is between 10 to 15 minutes. When you have a burglar in the house ready to harm you, is that a good enough time?
The more concealed weapon permits, the less crime there is.
John Lott, PhD, did a study in 2000 finding that “shall-issue” states and laws have had the following effect on society:
- Concealed carry permits have reduced homicide rates by 8.5%
- Concealed carry permits have reduced aggravated assaults by 7%
- Concealed carry permits have reduced rape rates by 5%
- Concealed carry laws have reduced robbery rates by 3%
- Carrying a concealed weapon could have prevented 1570 murders
- Carrying a concealed weapon could have prevented 4177 rapes
- Carrying a concealed weapon could have prevented 60,000 aggravated assaults
- Carrying a concealed weapon could have prevented 12,000 robberies
You have a right to keep and bear arms. Period.
A lot of brave men and women have died to protect the Constitution of the United States of America. The Second Amendment states, “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” Carry your concealed weapon with pride. (Now if we could only get Florida to allow open carry…)
Studies have shown that using a gun is the best way to resist crime was the best method of self defense.
The National Crime Victimization Survey posted, “”robbery and assault victims who used a gun to resist were less likely to be attacked or to suffer an injury than those who used any other methods of self-protection or those who did not resist at all.”
Here’s a table that will help you to understand the different self protection methods.
Carry a concealed weapon and live without fear.
Are you afraid to leave your home at night? Are you afraid to walk your dogs by yourself? Even if you never need to use your concealed weapon, you’ll feel a lot safer.
People who carry concealed weapons are more socially responsible and commit less crimes than people who do not carry.
In 2000, William Sturdevant published a study that the general public (those who do not carry a concealed weapons permit) is 5.7 times more likely to be arrested for violet offenses and 13.5 times more likely to be arrested for non-violent offenses.
