Excellent update (IMHO) on John Lott's prior studies re concealed carry permit (CCP) holders in the USA. Among his conclusions: the number of CCP holders in the USA is increasing in vast numbers (in the past year alone, 1.7 MILLION new permit holders were observed); 5.2% of the adult population has a permit to carry; women and minorities are the fastest increasing populations of CCP holders (270% since 2007 for women); between 2007-2014, the national murder rate DECREASED by 25%; CCP holders as a population are more law abiding than police officers.

Ken, you shouldn't be steering anything if you empty that flask! :)

So there's a weak link in the chain, fix it. The real question we should be considering is which will be the NEXT weak link in this chain?
The mobile payment service remains solid, as long as banks beef up their card-registration procedures. But what weakness will fraudsters take advantage of next?

Never underestimate the value of an armed citizenry.

The media misses the real truth behind NRA's core teaching mission.

Do you think that law abiding private citizens have ever stopped mass shooting incidents using their lawful firearms? Or are you among the naysayers? Well, here are some compelling examples that might convince you that it can and indeed has happened.

There's plenty of vitriol being published about the recent tragedy, on both sides. Here's some food for thought. Two different situations with two very different outcomes. I know which one I prefer.

We had a police emergency just a few feet from home yesterday. Plenty of lessons to be learned.

The media completely misses the real truth behind NRA's core training mission, IMHO.

There's a dark secret behind NRA's classes that the media doesn't want you to know.

He who pickets sells more tickets, as the old saying goes. Seems Obama, Bloomberg, and their minions have indeed become the industry's best sales people by way of the law of unintended consequences.
The American firearms industry is as healthy as ever, seeing an unprecedented surge that has sent production of guns soaring to more than 10.8 million manufactured in 2013 alone — double the total of just three years earlier.
