I had long since had my CCW license, but one week after the Virginia Tech shooting, I bought a new large capacity handgun. I had wanted it for a while, yes, but on the heels of new cries for gun control and gun bans and magazine capacity limits, I thought there was no better way to tell those people to shove it than by buying a new gun!
I had mine before the tech tragedy but it has helped to prompt a friend, one of my sons, and my wife into action they have the class behind them and only need to get to the Sheriff's office and the county clerk to get it on the way.
The police can't be everywhere to protect you. Some folks live in a fantasy world thinking nothing bad can happen to them.
It's only been recently that I got mine, before that I felt pretty safe. We've been inundated with gang activity and a population boom that got me motivated. Now I feel naked without a gun.
A cordial welcome from me to new members. I'm a newbie also.
Also, thats for that campuscarry link you posted Zero.
I certainly checked out the laws in the state where I attend college, and now that I've done my homework, I have a gun with me a LOT more often.
Gun Control means never having to say "I missed you."
- Glock 27 (.40)
- Kel-Tec p3at (.380)
- Beretta 96FS (.40)
- Smith & Wesson 5906 (9mm)
I just finish my CCW class and am awaiting paperwork to file with the sherriff's office. My desire for CCW was not related at all to VA-Tech
