As American citizens, we are given a right and that is the right to bear arms. We as Americans should be thankful as other countries don’t even come close. Now there are some anti-gun protesters who will fight and keep insisting that guns are very dangerous. Then you have the politicians fighting for stricter gun laws. You see before in some states you could only purchase a firearm and keep it within your home. Now, most of the states have passed the law of concealed carry. Now millions of Americans can exercise their second amendment right. It is unfortunate that some protesters are actually trying to keep you from exercising your right.
What protesters and politicians don’t seem to understand is that the bad guys don’t ask for permission and never the less want to do things the right way. I mean when was the last time you heard a concealed carry license holder robbed a bank? Or committed a crime? don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s happened, however, if, in fact, it did it was a very rare case. In my personal opinion, the streets would be a bit safer. Think about this for a second, if an attacker or burglar knew that there are many people carrying a firearm, the chances of the people becoming a target I believe would be slim to none. And if they did become a target, we could only assume who would lose that battle. I strongly believe that if most Americans would Concealed Carry, We would have less few crimes out in the streets, of course with proper training and well educated on firearms.
What we need to do is stop blaming the guns all the time, we need to accept that it is not the gun that causes issues it is the individual behind the gun causing such issues. Instead of taking our rights away as Americans, we should be educating us on the use of a firearm. A full background check, as well as a full mental/medical background check, should be performed before granting someone a permit to concealed carry. We as American citizens should not lose our rights because of people who don’t appreciate what we have.
