Interesting quote from Fr. Z:
I think all you readers out there should consider concealed carry license courses and, afterwards, lots of training and practice. Even if you choose, for one reason or another, not to carry – and for some people that is the reasonable, prudent, better choice – you will at least know something about firearms, laws, the training, and will also have received a heavy dose of how to de-escalate confrontations, avoid conflicts, increase your situational awareness, etc. It is useful on many levels. Don’t depend on the idiocies of the liberal media for your information about these things. Get first hand and hands on experience. Then you can have an opinion with weight.
