  • Concealed Carry Permit Holders Are Making America Safer and Citizens More Self-Reliant

    Concealed Carry Permit Holders Are Making America Safer and Citizens More Self-Reliant


    By Larry Keane

    With a federal appeals court recently ruling the District of Columbia’s highly restrictive concealed carry law unconstitutional, this is a good time to another look at the issue.

    Today, there are more than 16.3 million concealed carry permit holders nationwide. A record 1.83 million permits have been issued in the last year alone. John Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center reports that 6.5 percent of adults have a concealed carry permit. But because 14 states do not require a permit, having recognized a constitutional right to carry in all or part of their states that figure undercounts the number of Americans choosing to carry a firearm for self-defense.

    Coinciding with this dramatic growth in concealed carry permits has been a tremendous increase in the number of firearms in the hands of law-abiding Americans. All the while, violent crime with firearms has fallen at a remarkable rate.

    Lott found a direct correlation between an increase in permit holders and lower incidence of violent crimes in certain states. The merits of a responsibly armed citizenry are easy to understand. If criminals have to stop to consider if any person they might attempt to rob or assault is carrying a firearm, they may be deterred from committing their crime.

    The data show that individuals who hold concealed carry permits are more law-abiding than the general population. In fact, Lott cites data from Texas and Florida that show permit holders commit crimes at even lower percentages than police officers. This makes sense because citizens must go through an often demanding process to qualify for a permit to carry concealed. Criminals who misuse guns are not going to put themselves through that process.

    The increase in concealed carry permits is making America safer. Although the news stories rarely get coverage beyond their immediate media market, individuals with legally concealed carry firearms have successfully protected themselves and have come to the assistance of their fellow citizens on numerous occasions. They have also aided law enforcement officers who were in grave danger.

    As the number of permits holders has risen there has not been a “Wild West” of reckless gunfire that the anti-gun activists have long predicted.

    There is another positive aspect to this issue. Citizens deciding to exercise their individual right to keep and bear arms demonstrates that the American tradition of citizen self-reliance is alive and well after all.

    As David French wrote in the National Review, “An armed citizenry is more likely to remain a free citizenry, and free citizens are more likely to maintain the independence and courage that have long been hallmarks of the American spirit. In this important respect our nation is changing for the better — one carry permit at a time.”

  • Hello world!

    Good day Sheepdogs,

    We really appreciate you and the service you provide.  We are proud to be able to support your efforts and thankful for your patronage.

    Our website has been updated with expanded product lines & manufacturers.

     

    Which person do you want covering you? 

     

    In these crazy times, now more than ever we need our military and law enforcement to be on-point. In a liberal mentality somehow promoted by mainstream media, the good guys are demonized and the bad guys are glorified.  We admire, respect, and support all of our military and law enforcement personnel for their sacrifices and service. Citizens need to be mindful to do the same while they are living in a free society. Hopefully grounded in reality with the understanding that freedom is not free, but comes at a high cost.

     

    A Hero’s Story

    We will be starting a new monthly feature of focusing on heroes in action. We want to shine a light on the good that is happening and, unfortunately some of the tragedy that the people suffer for doing it. Please send in great stories of heroism. We will post the chosen ones all our marketing, social media and websites.
     
    At the end of their story, we will place a link of their choice that fundraises for them (like gofundme.com of giveforward.com) or a non-profit organization (like supportpolice.com or woundedwarriorproject.org). We will also send them something from stock or make a contribution for using their story.
     
    Understanding that sometimes anonymity is required, we don’t mind generalizing names and locations if required. We want the real deal. There will be vetting.
