Carson’s Policy Ignores Concealed Carry, Advocates Training of Muslims

I still like Carson the best overall but I’m very disappointed in the Carson campaign’s habitually slow recognition of the importance of the Second Amendment (compared with Trump), and in this latest release the total omission of any mention of its critical role in defense against ISIS–NOTHING in the release about expanding concealed and/or open carry to harden America’s many soft targets. Yet it urges us to train even more Muslims:

“3. The United States should urge its allies and partners in the Middle East to engage in massive recruitment and training of Sunni Syrian men based in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf and of Sunni Syrian male refugees in Jordan – to establish a military force to destroy ISIS and to establish a protection zone for the victims of the terrorist state.”

It’s been several years since the head of Interpol suggested using armed citizens in the fight against terror:, and I wish Trump was not the only candidate voicing support for the idea now:

“Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem,” Noble said. “One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you’re going to have to pass through extraordinary security.”

–Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble

525% Increase in San Bernardino Concealed Carry Apps Shows Importance of Open Carry

Hey Orange County, can we do better and get a tenfold increase in apps WITHOUT a major terror attack? No, we can’t, and the reason is concealed carry itself.

Only open carry educates your neighbors on carry. Only open carry creates accountability for carry. As I’ve often said: “Open carry is ultrasound for the Second Amendment.”

San Bernardino is one of the easier counties in which to get a permit. Lots of people have permits. I wish more of them were accountable to actually carry under those permits.

The 525% spike in concealed carry apps in San Bernardino and similar increases in Orange County demonstrate the importance of open carry.

“That’s a big spike.”

New Rasmussen Poll Shows Majority Okay With Armed Citizens

CopyCat Shooters
This is progress–seven years ago when i started providing concealed carry training, antis used to ask me: aren’t you afraid people won’t like you?

BELLEVUE, Wash., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A new Rasmussen poll released Monday shows that a majority of Americans are unconcerned about being in the company of armed private citizens, which comes at a time when applications for concealed carry permits and licenses are rising, possibly as a result of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, the Second Amendment Foundation said.

According to Rasmussen, 57 percent of Americans “remain unconcerned about their safety around those who have legal permits to carry concealed weapons, with 37% who are Not At All Concerned.” Rasmussen also reported that “Forty percent believe the presence of more Americans with concealed carry gun permits will decrease the number of people killed in violent incidents in America.”

“In the wake of terrorist attacks in France and California,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “more people are realizing that it could be the armed private citizen that provides the first line of defense until police arrive, and that could take several minutes. As Washington, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier recently advised in a CBS interview, ‘If you’re in a position to try to take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there.'”

The Rasmussen report also revealed that middle-aged adults “have the most confidence in those with concealed carry gun permits” and that “fifty-nine percent of Republicans believe the presence of more Americans with concealed carry gun permits will decrease the number of people killed in violent incidents, but just 25 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of unaffiliateds agree.”

“This suggests that Democrats and liberals still don’t get it about self-defense,” Gottlieb observed. “Maybe they’re more comfortable reading about defenseless people being murdered en masse, rather than having the tools to fight back, provided they’re not the victims.

San Bernardino has changed the dynamic, and it should seriously change the dialogue about firearms, self-defense and the right to carry,” he concluded. “We’ve entered a new era, and waiting for the police to arrive and save us is no longer a viable option.”

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms.  Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
