The world is a dangerous place. 2020 and 2021 saw vast amounts of civil unrest in 2020 and 2021 on both sides of the political spectrum. Good citizens all around the world would do well to take care to defend themselves and their families.
But what’s the best way to do so?
We argue that it’s carrying a concealed weapon. While gun ownership at the home can protect you from an invasion, a concealed weapon is the best personal safety option for when you’re on the go with your family.
This article will walk you through five reasons you should carry a weapon concealed, and teach you a bit about gun laws along the way.
1. Peace of Mind
The best weapon is the one you never have to use. You don’t have to ever use your gun to know that it’s keeping you and your family safe.
If you and your family happen to be traveling, they’ll be a lot more secure knowing that you’re there to protect them no matter what happens. This can help you enjoy your days out easier without anxiety. Kids growing up with constant anxiety and trauma might be affected when they get older.
2. Self Defense
Your concealed weapon will give you an advantage over any criminal who tries to stick you up with a knife or their bare fists. If they know what’s good for them, they’ll back off, realizing that you possess the superior weapon.
Certain criminals are cowardly and don’t really wish to cause harm. They’d rather attack someone who’s weak. You can very easily flash your handgun to them and scare them off.
3. The Police Can’t Save You
No matter how you feel about the boys in blue, the average response time for the police is 11 minutes. In life or death situations, that’s just not quick enough.
The police can help you, but they can’t save you. Often cases like a stolen purse, fall through the cracks because the cops simply don’t have time to track down all of these criminals. These issues seem minor to them.
But they’re not minor to you. That’s why you need to make sure you can defend yourself.
4. You’ll Feel More Patriotic
The constitution protects your right to bear arms, no matter what anyone says. Every state allows some sort of concealed carry — though some make it hard to get permits. However, if you live in a state that does let you concealed carry, you can carry with pride knowing that it’s your American right.
5. You Have Many Options
The kind of gun you’re carrying concealed will be a handgun. There are many options for handguns, however.
