If you live in one of the forty or so SHALL ISSUE concealed carry handgun permit states you need to seriously consider getting your permit. If you live in one of the other states, you need to move.
Three people have been hurt in a hatchet attack at a Wal-Mart in East Texas and police arrested a transient on assault charges.
Marshall police Detective Sonya Johnson said Monday that Christopher Hamilton of Crawford, Ark., allegedly had the hatchet with him when entering the store. Two female workers and a male shopper were attacked early Sunday.
Authorities are trying to determine a motive. Police don’t believe Hamilton knows the victims.
“Authorities are trying to determine a motive.” Hmmmm. Don’t give a rat’s ass about the motive. When I was young and feeling invincible as a law enforcement officer I thought, who’s going to F with me? I’m a big bad fed. I’m lucky that I made it to retirement.
I’m going to be 60 on my next birthday. I’ve learned from my mistakes. Never leave home without it! If I MUST go where concealed carry is not an option, I lock my handguns (yes I carry two) in car safes (yes I have two installed on my truck).
Don’t care what any mom or anybody else says about the gun nuts. I have a legal choice. And I choose to carry two handguns. Most days I mix and match a Bond Arms .45LC/.410 Texas Defender with a XDs .45acp or S&W Shield 9mm. A Ruger LCR .38 is also a great “pocket pistol” option as is a Sig P238 .380 in a cargo pants pocket.
I always carry in a holster and have different holsters for different carry positions/places. By the way, Appendix carry is now my prefered primary carry position.
I understand that most concealed carry permit holders can’t carry 24/7/365 because of their job or other compelling reasons. But I can, and I do, and the life I save may be yours.
Attention hoplophobe Mom’s: it’s your kid’s life that will be saved when a trained, responsible gun nut drops a shit bird with a hatchet before he chops Madison’s head off in Starbucks.
A bad guy with a hatchet or a hammer or whatever can happen anytime, any place. You better hope there’s a gun nut like me standing in line with you. Think about that next time you march around the park “demanding action”.
You moms should be worried about homicidal nuts intent on killing kids not trained, responsible gun nuts. #justsayin
“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”- Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria)
