Perhaps more than any time in America’s history, whites need to seriously consider carrying a concealed handgun. This is especially so in light of all the black-on-white savagery that has been occurring for the past few years.
Whites have become crime victims in numbers no one would have ever imagined just ten years ago. Times have indeed changed with black ghetto thugs specifically targeting whites for their racist rage. Although the MSM refuses in most instances to identify the race of the perpetrators, they’re at least showing nightly the many murders and beat-downs that whites are experiencing at the hands of ghetto blacks.
We must, then, begin thinking differently about how safe in America we truly are. As a former cop, I can assure you that when seconds count, we’re only minutes away. Isn’t that reassuring? I don’t say this to downplay the need for professional and well-tained law enforcement officers, but to place things in perspective. The police, in most cases by far, arrive on scene after a robbery, after a racial beat-down, and after a violent black ‘flash mob’ has done its dirty deed. At a time when you need them most, they’re minutes, sometimes even an hour away. Your safest bet is to rely on yourself, to arm and prepare yourself for a violent encounter instead of waiting for some government entity to arrive and protect you.
Here are some general principles to keep in mind when carrying concealed.
1. You’d be wise to obtain a concealed carry permit even if you don’t think you need one for your particular community. Wherever there are humans in sizable numbers, there’s going to be crime. The problem is that we’re never really sure when we’re going to be the target of someone else’s anger or criminal motives.
Even if your state or county doesn’t permit CCW to its citizens, you’d still probably be wiser to carry concealed. In most states, it’s only a misdemeanor anyways if you get caught by the police. The question you need to determine is whether the risk of getting caught by the authorities outweighs your need for personal defense on the streets. If you live in a white and relatively low-crime neighborhood, maybe not. But if you live in a high-crime area populated by lots of blacks and Hispanics, you might be more inclined to take the risk. Each person needs to make their own judgment and decide what’s best for themselves.
2. If you carry concealed, make sure you take a recognized firearms safety course. Most states and counties which issue CCW permits, I think, already require their applicants to complete a firearms course before they are officially issued one. But if yours doesn’t, get your butt in the next available class.
When you get your permit, practice, practice, practice! Become as proficient as you can with your handgun so that you’re completely comfortable with how it operates and fires. Know your handgun well, and make sure you know legally under what circumstances you can and cannot use that weapon.
3. If you’re going to carry concealed, make sure it’s concealed! Don’t be like some guys and gals with CCWs who permit their weapon to be slightly exposed or protrude out out of their waistband in an obvious manner. This is pure show-off bullshit! Not only will this alarm some folks who will call the police and likely distort the event as you being some gun-waving nut, but your encounter with law enforcement officers minutes later is not guaranteed to be particularly pleasant.
4. If you’re going to carry concealed, make sure the weapon is properly secured! This means you don’t stick your handgun unsecured in the small of your back like they do on TV or stuffed in the rear of your pants pocket. Many years ago, I knew a Lieutenant who routinely placed his off-duty firearm underneath his car’s front seat completely unsecured. Every time this numb-nut wanted his handgun, he had to reach under his seat and try to somehow find it. His practice was completely dangerous, and even more so because he had two small children! If you think cops don’t become lazy and unsafe with firearms, you’re woefully mistaken. Part of the problem is that because cops spend so much with their handguns, they tend to become complacent which often leads them to committing violations of basic firearm safety rules.
5. Just because you have a CCW doesn’t mean you throw away common sense! You still need to be aware of your surroundings and exercise common sense when it comes to your safety. It also doesn’t mean that you actively go looking for encounters because you’re carrying your cool little Smith & Wesson .357 snubnose or compact Glock 40 cal. Since you’re now carrying concealed, you ought be going out of your way to avoid violent encounters or getting into beefs with people. That weapon you’re carrying is only to be used as a last resort to protect yourself and your loved ones.
6. Make sure the handgun you choose for concealed carry fits you right and fires the kind of round that serves your needs. To each his own, but I wouldn’t carry a bullet smaller than a 9mm. I’ve never been a big fan of the 9mm round anyways, but to each his own. If your handgun is for the purpose of self-defense during a deadly encounter, you’re probably going to want a round that will quickly put down your assailant as opposed to simply making him more pissed. These are all things to consider. Just make sure the handgun you purchase is one you’re comfortable with and meets your protection needs.
Good Lord they’re beautiful!
