The carriage of a gun for self-protection or the protection of others is a serious decision. There are many psychological, legal, civil, and logistical ramifications of your decision. This video encourages their consideration. If a responsible civilian makes this decision there a certain "rules of the road" that should be followed in order to best prevent the use of lethal force and represent the CCW/CCP community responsibly. There are good voices in the pro-self-defence community that talk to many these issues and I have been adding my voice to these in many videos. Here's another, foundational in nature. Contained herein are mine, based on my over 18 years as a Concealed Carry Permit holder (civilian capacity) in every state I've lived in during that time. Addressed in serious fashion are considerations of "no carry" or so-called "gun free" zones and areas (better termed FREE FIRE zones for bad guys, see my vid: "Gun Free, Death Pay" by Nutnfancy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEbXuw...), the carry attitude, interaction with law enforcement, open vs concealed carry considerations, engagement decisions and considerations, extraction and de-escalation of the confrontation, the psychological considerations of weapon employment as a civilian, and the mandate of proficiency. This is NOT legal advice, it is LIFE advice. It is for those good people who are willing to use lethal force under certain circumstances to save lives, most likely their own. The concealed carry permit holder serves to actually and demonstrably make society safer. It has been proven to reduce crime in all areas where it has been instituted and gives its practitioner OPTIONS. The permit holders are to be applauded for their commitment in responsibility and public safety. However, the weight of its responsibility is serious and should be thoughtfully considered on his or her own "scale of life" before embarking upon The Concealed Carry Protocol. //////////////// Music: http://www.partnersinrhyme.com
