Where did you go to get your conceal and Carry Permit?

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I have written before about safety and what to do about protection.

A friend told me I was over the top!  "Do you know what the chances really are of needing to carry."

Well, he just called me the other night..."Bill, where did you go to get your conceal and carry permit...I need one fast!"

My friend is a plumber in an area not know for violent crimes.  But when he went into a vacant house to do some work for the new owners...He heard come commotion in the basement.  He yelled down and heard people going out the basement door.

3 guys were running fast.  So fast they left behind a lot of stuff.  Including 3 handguns and over $10,000 in drugs (Per the cops).

All he could think of is that the ending could have been a lot worse.

I told him that I would tell him where to get his permit...IF...he also signed up for classes on using a gun.  (He agreed)

I have been called crazy and an over re-actor to this safety thing, but I know 3 people in the last year that have run into a situation where having protection may have helped.

AGAIN...I am not saying everyone needs to get out and buy a gun...just if you are going to carry any protection, mace or whatever....Learn how to use it!!!!!

In our county you either have to have been a licensed hunter for a number of years or you have to take the class. However, taking the class doesn't mean you've taken the time to practice - that's a very good idea too.

I think this would be a good class for high schools - if all citizens were likely to be carrying, then crooks wouldn't be so bold.

The statistics prove it: Few guns - more violent crime. More guns - less violent crime.

I have never thought about carrying a gun.  Don't know why.  But I can see why it makes sense for many to do so.

It's up for vote in the IL legislation right now, I'm not sure how I feel about it. Would be better that we didn't have to carry a gun that's for sure!

I have not felt a real need to carry but I have been in a situation that made me nervous.

There have beena few times I wish I had had one with me.  Turned out ididn't need it, but at the time I wasn't so sure.  This was in a great neighborhood also.
