What that appears to encourage is asking for permission. While he’s at it, perhaps he should also ask if the mags must be OEM, if the holster must be leather or kydex or hybrid, if the ammunition he’s chosen is approved, if his holster needs a retention strap or if he can carry an extra magazine...or maybe two? Are night sights legal, and can you run a light on your gun?

You can’t be free while constantly asking for permission.

At some point, CCW holders may have to rapidly evaluate information available to them, and in a split-second, decide to take another’s life. When that happens, should they call the IA and ask permission to shoot?

Doesn’t it make sense to begin that decision training now? We need to be able to gather information from various sources AND MAKE AN INDEPENDENT DECISION.

With all of the information available on this site, an individual should be able to make the best decision for themselves. If they aren’t comfortable with the info, then leave the LCMs home.

If they have to ask, “Mother may I”, they should leave the gun at home.
