GOT YOURS? Peace of Mind is a Newly-Armed Spouse

June 27, 2017

IL-CCW

The majority of Americans recognize that firearm ownership provides real protection from criminal attack. Increasingly, women have come to embrace the empowerment of both gun ownership and concealed carry in their daily lives.

Yes, the fairer sex still lags behind in tooling up. However, women represent the fastest growing group of gun owners. In even worse news for the hoplophobic harridans at Moms Demand Action, women are applying for carry licenses at twice the rate of men. That spells bad news for bad guys.

My spouse has expressed to me plenty of times that she finds it reassuring that I carry.  She knows that if things go very badly, I have sterner stuff than harsh words to hurl at adversaries.

While avoiding trouble through situational awareness helps good people avoid becoming victims, sometimes bad things happen to good people. At these times, a good backup plan and a gun will keep a person safer and healthier than a backup plan alone.

As of yesterday, my wonderful wife joined the ranks of American women who carry guns. Her Illinois firearm concealed carry license arrived in the mail. Hooray. My lovely bride doesn’t share my love for all things ballistic, but she appreciates the empowerment of carrying a firearm. Now she gets to share that empowerment with me and many millions of other Americans now legally carrying.

Knowing my spouse can take care of herself and then some when I’m not around gives me a lot of comfort and satisfaction. She carries more than harsh words for any potential attacker. What’s more, when she’s with me, she’s now a force multiplier against any would-be bad guys.

Now it’s my turn to tell her how I feel better now that she has a gun with her.

How many of our Armed Intelligentsia are lucky enough to have a spouse with a carry license?

    Congradulations.   I know the issues, but it's about time!

    Now don't be like my wife did and wait a year before you take advantage of that card in your wallet.
