Our state legislature has been generally supportive
of LAW-ABIDING US CITIZENS exercising their US Constitutional right to keep and
bear arms. Everyone planning to carry such a device should seek
competent, professional advice and training for that device FIRST before
undertaking such an action.
This is a far more complex topic than can be adequately covered in one article
or in a short period of time. Often one focuses on "getting the
permit" when, in fact, "getting educated and trained" is the
better first position.
The decision to carry ANY device meant to do bodily harm to another should be
made carefully and to do so is a LARGE RESPONSIBILITY.
All too often, one is tempted to use force well before it is
appropriate. By the same token, the decision to use force to protect self
and family cannot be delayed when it is necessary. Thus is described one
of many important issues associated with packin'.
It is ESSENTIAL that if you plan to conceal carry deadly force that you READ
all you can on this LARGE responsibility – there are MANY things you need
to know BEFORE carrying a potentially lethal device, especially firearms.
For example, make sure you know (1) WHEN such force may be legally used and
(2) WHERE lethal devices - like handguns - may NOT be carried . . . some will surprise you.
The current debate in the Florida legislature btw
business owners and right-to-carry advocate groups represents one example of
the differences within our society - and potentially in the minds of jurors who may be
deciding your case – whether criminal or civil.
It is therefore recommended that everyone take a
“Concealed Carry” class as soon as possible . . . GunTrainingFlorida.com offers a wide variety
of Basic courses that are firearm-specific to satisfy the state licensing
requirements and several courses at various levels to expand on your skills.
