It's time for a sale! Not just any sale, but the Show Me Shooters Labor Day Sale! The sale honoring you and ourselves, the American Workforce! We couldn't think of a more deserving group. Many in-store manager specials will be offered throughout the weekend starting Saturday 10am through Monday 8pm. We look forward to seeing you, and from the staff, my family and myself have an AWESOME labor day weekend.
By now, I believe most of us who consider ourselves gun people, have heard of Constitutional Carry. The State of Missouri has become the 11th state to enact the right to carry a concealed firearm for personal protection without a permit. There is however a considerable amount of confusion around this new law, which goes into affect on January 1, 2017. This law is for Missouri residents to carry in Missouri. The Kansas law is for Kansas residents to carry in Kansas.
Those of us who consider ourselves pro-gun, pro-concealed carry and pro-second amendment know inherently that these "things" we believe in lead us to a greater level of safety in our lives. The ability to protect ourselves and our loved ones against an increasingly more violent and crime-ridden society means that we don't have to be victims of this onslaught. In the mass of reading I do on the subject, there are studies that show what we already in our hearts know, more guns in the right hands equal more safety for our communities.
Many of us have taken steps to obtain a firearm, learn to use the gun, maybe even obtain the credentials to carry a gun for personal protection in the form of a concealed carry license. How many have taken any further training in the form of proper tactics for an armed confrontation? How many even practice regularly to become proficient with the gun they carry for protection? I venture to say that the number is relatively small in comparison to the number of concealed carry permits out there.
