Some of what we see, hear, and read is truth, but there’s a lot of rhetoric on both sides of this issue. I’ve reposted some news articles and blogs related to the subject and have seen a pretty big spike in traffic on our Facebook page with several comments, some private messages, texts, emails, and some phone calls discussing this topic.
Concealed Handgun Carry License
So, you made the decision to carry a firearm, but you haven't decided to conceal or to constitutionally carry. If you're one of the few people who are willing to consider both sides of the argument, then this article is written for you.
What's the big deal with concealed carry licensure anyway? Who really needs one and who doesn’t? Many are in favor of getting proper licensure. Of those, most have done the research and realize that it is by far better to go through the class and absolutely understand the laws than listening to unlicensed and uneducated individuals discuss jailhouse law. Let's face it, everyone on social media has an opinion, and most of those opinions have no basis in fact. Allow me to ask you this question. How much do you trust people you don't know when it comes to your money and your freedom?
They took time out of their busier-than-ever lives and traveled . . . to see you.
They made room in their budget (some planning months ahead), and they are handing over their hard-earned money . . . to you.
You might be wondering at this point: Who are “they”? Well, let me tell you. They are your future students. And you are their Firearms Instructor. And, of course, what you offer to your future students largely depends on the quality of your instruction. It depends on how well you were trained and your willingness to continue to develop yourself as an instructor.
