Why get a concealed carry weapon? Our liberal friends would ask “why carry at all?”. But the simple answer to both of these questions is because we can. It’s not only our constitutional right to carry under the second amendment, but it’s our God given right, and might I add, our civil duty to do so.
It is a false notion that we live in a world in which people can rely upon law enforcement to be there at the moment a crime takes place. Most of the time after some heinous crime has been committed, the police show up afterwards and take the report. Men, and Women have the right to defend themselves against assailants.
A Duty Within The Home
A Man has a duty to protect his family and property against all who would seek to do them harm. The purpose of the second amendment was not so that we can only have shooting clubs, go hunting, or shoot skeet. It was the right of the people to bare arms for the purpose of protecting themselves from violent men and women.
“An unarmed people are slaves, or are subject to slavery at any given moment” – Huey Newton
Connecting A CCW To A Christian Heritage
This concept of liberty does not only reside within the constitution of the United States. God, who from which all men get their rights, says in His law, Exodus 22:2.”If the thief is caught while breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there will be no bloodguiltiness on his account.” The meaning is simple. If someone means to do you or your family harm, you will be guiltless to strike him down. Indeed to love your neighbor as yourself would be inline with defending innocent victims from an attacker in a life threatening situation.
I would much rather be sitting next to a good guy with a gun under his shirt when a gunman opens fire in a restaurant, theater, or school for that matter, than not. We must be logical about the issue of guns, gun control, and man’s basic God given right to defend him or herself.
For A Greater Good
Criminals do not obey gun laws. Gun control laws take guns away from law abiding citizens and exclusively seeks to places them in the government and the criminal’s hand alone. So why conceal carry? Because we can, we must, if we are to truly be free to protect those we love most, as well as those we call our neighbors. This isn’t anything new. History has a long line of those who believe it is the right of a people to defend themselves with guns.
