Another one for the good guys.
There have been 2 attempted robberies here where the robbers were shot or shot at by CCW employees in the last 2 days. People with bad intentions better think twice.

We're going to see more of these self-defense scenarios in the future. We lament the increasing number of "sheeple" in our country, but at the same time there are more and more other people who have decided that enough is enough. They are the kind of citizens who founded and made this country.

What a dangerous job. I'd think about moving to some place with tighter gun control laws and more gun-free zones for my own safety

The local Sheriff's Dept. has been inundated by new CCW applications over the last couple years. The last 2 times I went up to have my permit renewed, I was told that they are getting more applications in a month than they used to handle in a year. I live in Alabama, the application is little more than what you fill out on a 4473 (they want local references, too) and the cost is $20, so folks are putting forth the effort to get the permit. They haven't added any extra help (there's not any money in the budget for it), so the same 3 little ladies that handle all the other paperwork are really getting a work out but their wait time is still only 5 business days.

Being a clerk these days is very dangerous. Many years ago, my sister was interested in just such a job and my mom asked what I thought. I said I wouldn't do it without a pistol and a 12-gauge at close hand. She changed he mind.

I recall years ago there was a convenience store located on what used to be HWY 30 between Tama and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My wife and I had stopped there on a couple of occasions and commented we wouldn't want to work there especially at night. The nearest house was a farm house about 1/2 mile away on a gravel road. Probably 25 years ago a fellow I worked with who lived in the Tama area was coming home one night and stopped to get a bottle of pop and asked the younger woman who was working alone if she wasn't worried about her safety. She told him they had never had any problems there. Well just a week or two later a young man stopped and robbed the place and shot her in the process. Her body was discovered by another customer who stopped there. Man I am telling you I would not work alone or even with another person in a place like that even if I was carrying both my 357 and my 45ACP there is no job worth losing my life for!
The Government is not the cure, it is the disease!
A armed society is a free society (and a polite one)
There are not enough Police Officers in the country to be everywhere that criminals are at any given time.
It is much preferable to have more armed law abiding citizens to more police officers IMHO.
