Case for Gun Ownership and Training
If you’ve been paying close attention to the radical changes in American gun laws recently, no doubt you’re wondering what all the fuss is about. Did you know that 1 in 10 adults in the United States has a criminal record? Quite a frightening statistic! But it’s true, and the time to protect yourself from being a victim of crime is right now! Criminal activity can happen to anyone, and it’s up to you to protect yourself and ensure that your family can sleep soundly at night knowing that you have the means to protect them from danger.
And there’s more to fear than just 1 in 10 adults in America being criminals. In the United States, a home invasion burglary happens every 14.6 seconds. That’s 5,400 burglaries per day! The average cost per year of what’s stolen adds up to 15.7 billion dollars. And the great majority of these burglaries are committed by mindless thugs, hell bent on stealing as a way to feed their drug and alcohol habits and enable themselves to commit more crime.
If you’re a mother of children and fear for their safety, you couldn’t be more right. A burglar, thief, or rapist will choose to pick on people they think are more helpless than others. That’s the way a criminal mind works. Thusly, recent legislation has become much more tolerant of law abiding citizens owning and brandishing firearms to protect their body and property. In self defense situations, especially when you feel yourself or others are in mortal danger, you have the right to protect yourself using lethal force!
The great majority of the United States have gun registration readily available to nearly every adult. Also, there are training classes available that can show you how to operate your firearm safely. Plus, learning how to shoot for target practice is a fun hobby that might just save your life if you’re ever put in the situation where you must be accurate. The instinct to protect your children comes naturally to a woman, and having a gun in the house is the right method of approach to deter thieves and criminals. If they know you’ve got a gun, they will most likely move on to a more easy target.
“Concealed carry” handgun laws are pretty much the norm for every state out there, and if you’re a mother, especially a single mother, then you’re going to want to invest in a high quality firearm to protect your family. Not doing so would be one of the stupidest mistakes you could ever make. Criminals regularly receive information from crime bosses as to who and what are easy targets. Sometimes its a business with goods that get broken into, but more often it’s a private residence.
