Criminals don't like it when their intended victims have the means to fight back? There is a shocker.

You mean that "Gun Free Zone" signs aren't working???. I have never applied for a permit but seriously thinking about one. For too many wacko's walking around loose these days.
oppo and Silver-Bolt like this.

I would certainly recommend getting your permit. The more of us there are, the better. Besides, every day the news is filled with people who were convinced they didn't need a gun to go to the store, or stop for gas, or sit on a park bench while their kids played. Whenever someone tries to tell me that they don't need a gun, I always tell them that I hope for their sake that they are right.

I hope I don't need my spare tire or fire extinguisher. There are monsters out there who will kill anybody they want.You can either be prepared or die when they want you.
