𝙒𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙎𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝘾𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙋𝙤𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙊𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙈𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙩𝙚𝙨 𝘼𝙬𝙖𝙮! 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀…???
Here’s something every US citizen should know about:
𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗨.𝗦. 𝗦𝘂𝗽𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘁, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗢𝗟𝗜𝗖𝗘 𝗗𝗢 𝗡𝗢𝗧 𝗛𝗔𝗩𝗘 𝗮 𝗟𝗘𝗚𝗔𝗟 𝗗𝗨𝗧𝗬 𝘁𝗼 𝗣𝗥𝗢𝗧𝗘𝗖𝗧 𝗬𝗢𝗨!
There are 𝙈𝙐𝙇𝙏𝙄𝙋𝙇𝙀 rulings where the Supreme Court has said that the government does not have a duty to protect you from harm…
…𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗡 𝗪𝗛𝗘𝗡 𝗧𝗛𝗘𝗬 𝗞𝗡𝗢𝗪 𝗔 𝗧𝗛𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗧 𝗘𝗫𝗜𝗦𝗧𝗦.
According to Darren L. Hutchinson, a professor and associate dean at the University of Florida School of Law:
“𝗡𝗲𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘁𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗻𝗼𝗿 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝘄, 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝗮 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗱𝘂𝘁𝘆 𝘂𝗽𝗼𝗻 𝗽𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗿 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗴𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗱𝘂𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗺 — 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗺 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝗰𝗰𝘂𝗿. 𝗣𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝘄𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝘆𝗼𝘂, 𝗿𝗲𝗳𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗲𝗻𝗲, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘃𝗶𝗼𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘁𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻.”
And his claim is backed up by 𝗟𝗢𝗧𝗦 of federal court precedent:
• 𝘿𝙚𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝙫. 𝙒𝙞𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙗𝙖𝙜𝙤
• 𝙏𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝘾𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙍𝙤𝙘𝙠 𝙫. 𝙂𝙤𝙣𝙯𝙖𝙡𝙚𝙨
• 𝙒𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙚𝙣 𝙫. 𝘿𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝘾𝙤𝙡𝙪𝙢𝙗𝙞𝙖
Now, I’m not criticizing the police… 𝗜 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗲𝗱 𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗯𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝘀 𝗕𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗮 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝗸 & 𝗕𝗿𝗲𝗮 𝗣𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗢𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗲𝗿 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝟯𝟬 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘀! I’m just giving you the legal facts, directly from a law professor as well as federal court precedent.
I know dozens of police officers including myself who have put their lives on the line for numerous citizen strangers in peril, 𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗥𝗬 𝗗𝗔𝗬!
And would willingly run toward danger just to keep you safe.
But when it comes down to it…
𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝘄𝗻 𝘀𝗮𝗳𝗲𝘁𝘆.
And honestly, when you are being attacked, you can’t wait for someone else to come save you.
𝗕𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝘀 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗻𝘁, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗼𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝘂𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝘄𝗮𝘆!
Once again, my point is not an insult against the police. The police are in fact my brothers and sisters in blue, green, camo or khaki.
𝗠𝘆 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹-𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗼𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗿𝘀, 𝗿𝗼𝗯𝗯𝗲𝗿𝘀, 𝗿𝗮𝗽𝗶𝘀𝘁, 𝗯𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗮𝗹 𝗴𝗮𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝘂𝗴𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗱𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝘄𝗮𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗼𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝟵𝟭𝟭 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗮𝗶𝘁 𝗯𝗲𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗻𝘀.

Enlightenment philosopher John Locke made a similar conclusion in his writings in the 17th century. Les Adams’ Second Amendment Primer quotes Locke as saying: “ “[𝗣𝗿𝗶𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀] 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮 𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺𝘀𝗲𝗹𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗯𝘆 𝘂𝗻𝗹𝗮𝘄𝗳𝘂𝗹 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗰𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺. [𝗢𝗻𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝘆 𝗸𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝗴𝗴𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗿 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝘄, 𝗳𝗼𝗿] 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝘄 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝘆 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗰𝗮𝘀𝘀.”
Locke’s point, much like my own, is that very often there’s no time to wait for the police to come to your rescue. Instead, 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆, 𝗼𝗿 𝗶𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗯𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗿 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗶𝗻𝗷𝘂𝗿𝗲𝗱.
I’ll follow up with one more thought on personal self-defense with a quote focused on Patrick Henry’s mantra about preparedness:
“𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝗼𝗯𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗥𝗬 𝗠𝗔𝗡 𝗮𝗻𝗱 [𝗪𝗢𝗠𝗔𝗡] 𝗕𝗘 𝗔𝗥𝗠𝗘𝗗.”

Carrying a concealed handgun in public is permitted in all 50 states as of 2013 when Illinois became the last state to enact concealed carry legislation. Some states require gun owners to obtain permits while others have “unrestricted carry” and do not require permits.
Proponents of concealed carry say concealed carry deters crime, keeps individuals and the public safer, is protected by the Second Amendment, and protects women and minorities who can’t always rely on the police for protection.
Opponents of concealed carry say concealed carry increases crime, increases the chances of a confrontation becoming lethal, is not protected by the Second Amendment, and that public safety should be left to professionally qualified police officers.
1. There are multiple categories available in most states for concealed carry.
State regulations might vary across the country when implementing concealed carry laws, but there are multiple categories of permit implementation that work to ensure a firearm doesn’t get into the hands of someone who might commit a crime. These are the regulations that are currently in place in the United States.
2. It may deter crime from happening.
When FBI crime data was evaluated in 2000 by Dr. John Lott, he calculated that the presence of shall-issue laws in the United States contributed to a 8.5% reduction in murders, a 7% reduction in aggravated assault, a 5% reduction in rape, and a 3% reduction in robbery. His review suggests that up to 1,570 murders could have been prevented if every state had adopted this level of concealed carry permission between 1977-1992. A study in Applied Economic Letters also found that the states with more restrictive laws saw gun-related murder rates that were 10% higher than those without such restrictions.
3. Law enforcement officials support the idea of concealed carry laws.
The Chief of Police in Detroit, Larry Craig, once said that the presence of concealed firearms in his city were welcome because they acted as a deterrent. The idea of having good people with a concealed permit license translated into a reduction in crime. A 2013 survey of 15,000 current and retired law enforcement officials found that over 90% support the idea of concealed carry in their community.
4. It allows responsible citizens to have the right to defend themselves.
Violent criminals may not always have a gun, but they typically have a weapon that will be used in the commission of a crime. Even a person’s fists can be deadly under the right set of circumstances. Instead of allowing themselves to become a victim while waiting for law enforcement officials to respond, the ability to concealed carry provides someone with the right to protect themselves if they go outside at night or find themselves in a dangerous situation.
The National Opinion Research Center found that 59% of people who carry a gun outside of their home will do so because it makes them feel safer. There was a significant increase in the number of women securing these permits in Florida for that very reason, going from 15% in 2004 to 23% of holders in 2014.
5. Court rulings suggest that it is an implied right of the Second Amendment.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is well-known in conservative circles for its history of ruling more on the side of liberal idealism, but a 2014 case found them deciding that the Second Amendment requires a state to permit some form of concealed carry for self-defense purposes outside of the home. That case followed a 2012 ruling from the 7th Circuit that the right to bear arms must be interpreted in such a way that it includes the right to have a concealed gun in public and to have it ready for use should one’s safety be threatened.
6. Most concealed carry permit holders follow the law.
William Sturdevant studied the behaviors of the general population in the United States and compared it to that of concealed carry permit holders. His work found that the average person is 14 times more likely to be arrested for a non-violent offense when compared with someone who is legally permitted to carry a concealed firearm in public. Sturdevant’s work also found that the average person is 5.3 times more likely to be arrested for violent conduct.
Concealed carry permit holders are also 5.5 times less likely to commit a crime with their firearm and almost 7 times less likely to get behind the wheel of their vehicle when they’ve had too much to drink. The actual number of incidents where a concealed firearm carrier kills innocent people makes up less than 1% of homicides in the United States each year.
7. Concealed carry allows for a faster response during an emergency situation.
The average response time to an emergency call for police officers is about 11 minutes. When there are specific emergencies reported, such as a school shooting, there may be laws in place that require a response in four minutes or less. In some cities, however, the time it takes for officers to arrive can be exceptionally high. The response time in Detroit in 2013 was almost an hour.
Most officers do very little to actually prevent a violent crime from occurring. Their role is to investigate what happened after the fact. The Supreme Court has even ruled that a police officer does not have a legal duty to protect citizens against the commission of a violent crime. Because that is the legal standard in the United States, having a concealed carry system makes it possible for the average citizen to respond as necessary should a dangerous incident occur.
8. It is a policy which a majority of Americans support.
Although the presence of a gun can make a majority of the general population feel uncomfortable, that emotional response is often due to a lack of training or awareness of the firearm than what it can do as a tool. CBS polls found that 65% of Americans opposed a federal law which would have required a nationwide ban on the concealed carry permit process. In 2012, Thomson Reuters found that 75% of the country supported laws which would allow a law-abiding citizen to carry a concealed weapon in public.
9. Thanks to the Supreme Court Ruling last June 2022 ALL STATES U.S. have SHALL-ISSUE LAWS.
The United States works with shall-issue laws instead of may-issue requirements, which means anyone who is old enough and eligible to own a firearm can do so and apply for a concealed carry permit. If you meet the minimum standard, then you get the permit. That means it is the states where local governments or police departments have discretion in offering a denial that the minority of this structure takes place, skewing the data because the sample size is much smaller.
10. You can carry the firearm in a way that reduces draw time disadvantages.
Knowing how you will wear your gun will help you to reduce the significant draw disadvantages that concealed carry can cause. That is why your selection of a holster or carrying mechanism is one of the most critical components of this decision. You must choose something that doesn’t leave a print (an outline) in your clothes that shows you are carrying, but there must also be a way for you to reach the weapon quickly if you have an emergency. Most people choose a waistband or OWB holster, but there are shoulder and purse options available as well.

1. Carrying a concealed handgun in public has been permitted in all 50 states since 2013 when Illinois became the last state to enact concealed carry legislation.
2. State laws on concealed carry can fall into four categories: no-issue, may-issue, shall-issue, and unrestricted (also called no permit or constitutional carry).
3. In 1989 the National Rifle Association (NRA) launched a nationwide campaign to increase the number of states with shall-issue laws. At the time nine states had such laws. By 2000, 30 states had shall-issue laws.
4. "There were 2.7 million concealed handgun permit holders in 1999, 4.6 million in 2007, 8 million in 2011, 11.1 million in 2014, and now 19.48 million in 2020," according to the Crime Prevention Research Center in Nov. 2020,
5. As of Nov. 2019, 16 states allowed carrying a concealed weapon on public college or university campuses and 23 states allow each college or university to make decisions on concealed carry on campus.
