Take Responsibility

"Carry a concealed weapon. That'll fix it." --Spartanburg County, S.C. Sheriff Chuck Wright

The sheriff was reacting the recent attack of a woman by a man male who has spent most of his life either in jail after attacking a woman, or out of jail and attacking another woman. Wright realizes that law enforcement cannot be there to protect innocent people, and this lowlife criminal knows it too. In fact, the courts have ruled that the police have NO responsibility to protect. Sheriff Wright understands what so many people are realizing today; citizens must be responsible for their own safety.

Now, the hoplophobes will jump up and down about how there will be "blood in the streets." But, you know what? It hasn't happened. Every state in the U.S. except one provides for some some sort of legal concealed carry, though in some states the right is so restricted it may as well not exist. As more and more people own firearms, person on person crime still continues to go down. There's a reason that almost all mass shootings occur in "gun free zones." Criminals fear an armed populous, as do dishonest politicians. More people armed doesn't mean more people getting shot — it means more criminals choosing not to prey on innocent people. Sheriff Wright understands this.
