“We live in a dangerous and violent world. Crime is at epidemic
levels throughout our nation. Carry your handgun whenever you
are legally allowed to do so. You are responsible for your own
security, and that of your family and friends; not anyone else.
You are your own first responder. Train, practice and prepare!”
