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.

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

Here's a follow-up to last year's list of tips. Be safe out there, folks, but keep calm and carry on.

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.

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?
