Considering the recent shootings, you might be asking what to do in this situation. It is hard not to wonder what would happen if you were put in a difficult situation like a mass shooting or even a minor incident. Having the idea of getting rid of guns will never turn into a reality. Guns will never get out of the hands of evil. It is our choice whether we will take a stand and do what we can to protect ourselves. Having these tools to protect ourselves is important because first responders will take a lot longer than you will if you are present in the event. The average response time for first responders/police is 7 minutes. In the Columbine shooting, 10 people were killed and 12 were wounded in 7 ½ minutes. You can see with this example how every minute risks more and more damage being done.
We want you to make educated decisions about carrying a gun because it is vitally important to feel safe in this world. There are certain resources that can help you feel more confident in carrying a gun. We at Train Protect Defend always recommend training and education to keep you informed about shooting and firearms. Getting your LTC gives you more protection in the event that you need to use your firearm. Finally having support like USCCA (United States Concealed Carry Associations) can help you feel even more confident carrying on a daily basis.
