For those who believe in the utility of an armed citizenry, the rapid increase of the concealed carry population is a welcome sight. All across the country, states are seeing a marked surge in the number of residents who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear, as well as their inalienable right to self-preservation. As more representatives of law enforcement agencies across the country publicly admit that the threat level from both “garden variety” criminals and politico-religious terrorists is such that the best chance for citizens to stay safe is at their own hands, Americans everywhere are getting the message, and taking the necessary steps to lawfully carry guns wherever they go.
According to a recent piece over at Breitbart News by their Second Amendment columnist, AR Hawkins, Ohio alone issued 72,000 new licenses in 2015, which represents a near-25 percent jump from the number of licenses issued there in 2014.
While many applaud the numbers, it is important to remember that there is a lot more to situational readiness in a self-defense scenario involving guns than merely having one when serious trouble breaks out. When it comes to defending yourself, survival is as much, or more, about your mental readiness as it is your physical readiness. To that end, I recommend the terrific Counter Violence, a highly-informative, 138-page physical book that deals largely with the subject of mindset as it pertains to violent encounters. From that perspective, it is a thorough work, and one that belongs on the shelf of anyone who seeks to become completely prepared to defend him/herself, as well as those innocent parties nearby, from the kind of violent attacks that have become an all-too-regular presence in our communities, across the country, and around the world nowadays.
The author of Counter Violence is E.J. Owens, the founder and president of Legally Concealed. Owens’ specialty as an instructor is in the area of concealed carry and home defense scenarios. His background is impressive, and includes service as a U.S. Army infantry officer, as well as CQB (close quarters battle) instructor and hand-to-hand combat instructor with the military.
