Words of Wisdom:
“No matter how one approaches the figures, one is forced to the rather startling conclusion that the use of firearms in crime was very much less when there were no controls of any sort and when anyone, convicted criminal or lunatic, could buy any type of firearm without restriction. Half a century of strict controls on pistols has ended, perversely, with a far greater use of this weapon in crime than ever before.” – Colin Greenwood, in the study “Firearms Control”, 1972
- Vet Firearms Confiscated for insomnia – The Blaze reporting on a veteran who is suing New York due to his firearms being seized.
The details reported raise concerns. Here are some things Mike says to keep in mind:
- Don’t chase the subject or move to a confrontation from a “safe” location.
- Call the police
- Do not chase the individuals unless you fear they are moving in the direction of you or your loved ones
This is a tragic accident, there is no doubt about that. Mike says he does not favor purse carry because you could leave your purse somewhere, someone could steal it or your child could take it somewhere. That being the case, Mike advocates for carrying your concealed firearm on your person because it offers more control over the firearm. All these things should be considered when choosing how you will be concealing your firearms. Please, please, be sure that safety is your first priority. These incidents are rare, but heartbreaking when they happen.
