If you choose to carry and own a gun it is very important that you explore your local and state laws so you fully understand your rights and the laws that govern gun ownership. It is also important to know your local and state laws governing the use of “lethal deadly force”. If someone breaks into your home, can you shoot them even if they are not visibly armed? If someone attacks you in public, do you have a duty to retreat? Under what circumstances can you legally display your gun? Are there places where you cannot carry a gun? Can you travel across state lines with your gun? These are just a few of the questions you want to answer as you make the decision to own a gun.


Neglecting to understand the legal issues including your rights and your risks is careless. You put others and yourself at risk.  Also, the better you understand the laws the better equipped you will be to make quick decisions when under great stress. There are some basic defensive tips everyone should know and make part of their daily lives whether or not you carry a firearm.


That’s what we teach!!
