A different perspective on concealed carry
This was posted on Facebook by a 911 dispatcher from my area.
A Facebook friend posted a transcript of that pro-gun-ban speech from the football game last night... I posted a comment, which has turned out to be the ONLY comment (and normally she'll get about 10-15 comments on a status).
Guess I made my point- the truth hurts!!! Or else maybe she just doesn't want to piss off the chick with the gun bwahahaha!!!
"I carry a firearm every day because I take 911 calls all night long from people who have been attacked, beaten, or raped because they were unable to defend themselves. I am 5'4, 125 lbs., I drive a decent car. and I am a target. I carry because I am unwilling to be a victim, and I deal with victims every day at work.
I know I would much rather take a hundred calls where the woman says 'A man grabbed me, threw me to the ground, said he was going to rape me, and I shot him' than one single call from a woman screaming and sobbing that she's been raped and couldn't stop him. On a good night, the police are 3-5 minutes away from your house if you live in the city, and up to 30 minutes away in the county.
I will never be a victim of sexual abuse EVER AGAIN. If someone breaks into my house, I will be able to defend myself. Bad people are out there. They have no regard for laws. They will have weapons whether they are legal or not."
Ladies, you are responsible for your own safety. Not your boyfriend, husband, brother, friend, cousin, or police. Be proactive and be prepared.
Re: A different perspective on concealed carry
I know a 911 operator, she feels the same way but she doesn't carry. :confused:
