Whether we like to admit it or not, the world we live in continues to grow more dangerous every day. With recent events on the news displaying acts of terrorism and images of extreme violence against innocent people, some may feel uneasy about going out. There are certain steps you can take as a citizen to make you and your family feel safer, one of those steps is obtaining a concealed carry permit for a firearm. There is currently no federal concealed carry permit, although there is a growing movement to pass one, currently Concealed Carry Permits are issued locally. Many believe there would be substantial benefits of National Concealed Carry Permits, but for now the laws vary State by State. Some states have stricter gun laws than others, but if you live in a state where a concealed carry permit is allowed, it’s a great idea to take the proper steps in obtaining one.
Benefits of Concealed Carry Permits
There are many benefits to carrying a concealed weapons permit; one of those reasons is that it puts police officers at ease. Many firearm owners carry their weapon in their vehicle for protection while traveling on the roadways. If you happen to get pulled over by a police officer and they ask you if you have any type of fire arm or weapon inside of your vehicle or on your person it is always important to answer truthfully. Showing the police officer the concealed carry permit shows that you have undergone the necessary background checks, that you are a law abiding citizen and a responsible gun owner.
Gun Safety Education
Another benefit of obtaining your concealed carry permit is that you will become much more educated on gun safety and becoming more familiar with their fire arm. A typical concealed carry permit class is about eight hours long. Your experienced instructor will go over all of your state and local gun laws so you are aware of where you can and cannot carry your weapon. Your instructors will also discuss situations where deadly force can be used. There are many important scenarios that will be gone over so you are fully aware of the proper way to act when carrying your concealed weapon.
