Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception.
We live in a world where seconds can mean the difference between life or death...The right seconds mean life and the wrong seconds mean death. Your entire life is built upon a series of seconds.
When your loved ones are face-to-face with a violent attacker or when your home is under invasion you'll have only seconds to decide what to do.What are you going to do?
Remember...Every second counts!
As a permit holder, you are authorized to possess a loaded handgun in public places (other than those places prohibited by law), carried exposed or concealed (the MCPPA doesn’t even contain the word “concealed”). Permit holders are also exempted from the state statute prohibiting the carry of loaded rifles and shotguns in public That said TRANSPORTING a loaded rifle or shotgun is still prohibited, even for permit holders.
