Here are just a three reasons that may help to persuade you to start to carry everyday, not in any particular order.
It’s Your Right as a Citizen of the United States
The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights guarantees protection of the right to keep and bear arms for self protection. The Supreme Court has upheld this concept. Just by being a citizen of this great nation, you have the right to carry a concealed firearm.
The World is a Bad Place
As much as we wish it wasn’t, the world we know today is not the same one we knew years ago. There is more crime and violence than in other historical periods. You just never know when or where something bad will happen.
To Protect Your Family
The most important asset in our lives are our families, and we need to protect them anyway we can. A concealed firearm is one of the best ways to protect them from the world we discussed above.
To Protect Yourself
We all want to come home to our families every night. I know I do. This is another tool to ensure we will make it home to hug our loved ones.
Reap the Benefits of Training
Some people just like to be able to train and learn, and by carrying their firearm, they are able to put that training to use.
Better Situational Awareness
Some people say that when they carry, they are more on edge and are better aware of their surroundings. When I carry, my senses are on high alert and I tend to know more of what is going on around me. Having a gun means I have to know what is happening to avoid a bad situation.
Everyone’s reasons for carry differ from person to person and place to place. However, it boils down to making a commitment to be a responsibly armed person not only for ourselves, but our families and friends.
