When we carry a concealed weapon, we are of course are talking about taking control of our own safety And, since we can now respond with deadly force to a murderous attacker, we are also taking control and responsibility for their lives as well as any bystanders lives. We all must share in this great responsibility, in just North Carolina as of June 2011 there were a total of 228,072 Concealed Carry Permit holders[i], even though you are never aware of their armed presence.
Guns are neither safe nor unsafe by themselves, it’s the individual that’s holding the gun that’s safe or unsafe. We can’t stress the importance of firearms safety. Owners of firearms must have a complete knowledge of firearms safety, complete knowledge and understanding laws in their state regarding the use of force, as well as the ability to use the firearm in a safe and responsible manner. One of the most important is the ability to use good judgment of firearm operation as well as use, weather in self-defense, practicing the fundamentals of marksmanship.
The need for training on the “when to” shoot is now an accepted fact among the courts. Unfortunately, many people, due to a lack of false security, have not continued their training in this area. The failure to have “judgment” or “decisional” training with respect to the use of deadly force is a risk that you cannot afford to take.
