I bear arms because it is my right protected by the U.S. Constitution. I carry because I refuse to be a victim. While much is spoken of this as our right’, there is not nearly enough talk of this as our ‘responsibility’. As a responsible citizen, said right requires me to act in a safe, prudent manner for the well-being and protection of myself and those around me. I would encourage all who choose to exercise this right to go above and beyond any minimum, stipulated requirements by taking their ongoing training seriously…their own life or someone else’s may depend on it.
