CCW

The highest murder rates are in big cities like Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and others that essentially ban the carrying of handguns by citizens. When something bad happens the first thing people do is call 911, and hope someone with a gun comes to help them. 

 I have been a firearms instructor for 45 years and I think that anyone competent enough to drive a car on the road can be trained to competently carry and use a firearm in about the same amount of time. Several decades ago, Florida changed their laws to allow almost anyone to carry a concealed firearm. 

The media was hysterical and spoke of boycotts and murder in the streets. Since that time crime has plummeted and almost never is a concealed carry citizen convicted of improper use of their firearm. If you trust The People to govern themselves in a democracy, how can you not trust them to know when their lives are in danger and allow them to protect themselves with a firearm?
