A “conceal and carry class” is a common term that generally refers to the class required before a person can obtain their license or permit to carry. However, it is important to keep in mind that the requirements for what a conceal and carry class must contain, or whether you even need to take a class to obtain your permit, vary depending on the state in which you live.

So, you’ve just been forced to defend yourself in a self-defense shooting. Now what do you do? In the heat of the moment, your only thought was to act in self-defense to protect your life; but once the smoke clears, your mind is rattled with worry…

Protecting the Faithful: The Church Security Team

A church security team serves a vital role in protecting parishioners and staff during services and promoting overall church safety. While the church security team’s job description says as much, when most people think of a church security team, they probably imagine an armed response to an active killer. While this is certainly something that could occur, the church security team’s mission is more nuanced than that.

The morning of September 11th, 2001, began like any other for most Americans across the country. They went to work, attended morning classes, and followed their normal routines. Many of those living on the West Coast were still asleep when the terror attacks began. Some saw the destruction play out in real time; some woke to a world forever changed by hate and terror.

2021-09-03T10:53:37-05:00August 30th, 2021|Tags: , |

In early 2021, the Colorado Legislature passed, and Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed, Senate Bill 21-078, the “Isabella Joy Thallas Act.” This new law will impose a duty upon Colorado firearm owners to report lost or stolen firearms. This law is currently set to become effective on September 11, 2021. However, if a referendum petition is filed before that date, the bill would then be submitted to Colorado voters for approval in the 2022 general election.

Get Outdoors: Hunting with Kids

2021-08-30T14:30:50-05:00August 30th, 2021|Tags: , |

Hunting is a treasured American pastime, not only because hunters go out in hopes of bringing home game meat, but also because time spent in the field can be such an enriching experience. Whether it’s enjoying the sunrise, sunset, or the hours of peace and quiet spent leaning up against a tree or sitting in a blind, hunting has so much to offer. And if you have kids, there are endless reasons to take them hunting. Legally speaking, all states define and consider a person under the age of majority (usually 18 years old) as a “minor.” A minor cannot fully exercise the same rights or liberties as adults until they come of age. Read on to find out why we believe kids should put down their electronics and hit the woods.

Gun owners sometimes carry in areas that might seem surprising to those outside the firearms world. In fact, before 2021 was even halfway over, there were 14 arrests reported at Disney World because guests had been carrying their guns even though it’s prohibited in the park. Why do people carry guns in areas they aren’t allowed? Reasons vary, but some of the ways people carry, and the locations where they are carried, are definitely unexpected. These are just a few of them.


Constitutional Rights Targeted by a Nameless Computer System in Connecticut

2021-09-01T09:42:08-05:00August 20th, 2021|Tags: , |

I never would have believed a time would come when I would walk into a gun store in Connecticut and hear, “Sorry, we cannot sell guns to anyone right now.” But this is exactly the situation we are currently facing in Connecticut. Was it a new law or regulation that shut the entire system down? No. The State says its new computer system, which is designed to make firearm sales easier, is not yet fully implemented. Let me clarify that: the new system does not work, and the stores are left helpless, unable to serve law-abiding persons who have a constitutional right to purchase a gun.

On May 17, 2021, Governor Henry McMaster signed Act No. 66 into law, the Open Carry with Training Act. That law became effective on August 15, 2021. Anyone who has a valid Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) issued by the State of South Carolina, (or any other U.S. state with which South Carolina enjoys reciprocity), may now openly or concealed carry their handgun or a concealable weapon (a firearm having a length of less than twelve inches measure along its greatest dimension).
