No American in today’s violent society should ever be without knowledge or power. This includes both the power to stand up and defend oneself or one’s loved ones and the knowledge to do something about it. After all, knowledge is power, is it not? So they say. The Constitution of the United States, and the Second Amendment, in particular, promote liberty and the pursuit of freedom and happiness as a whole.
As such, one has the right to purchase and maintain any necessary forms of protection for oneself, as long as one is a citizen and properly abiding by the laws of the country. One is also both entitled and exhorted to protect the nation’s best interests and to fight when needed in a time of war. This is both an honor and a duty for any true American. Properly owning and carrying a firearm is a wonderfully unique privilege and pursuit that is more than worth fighting for.
Such pursuits must be continually fought for and protected in order for the great United States of America to continue to be a free nation, one equally united and defended under God, “with liberty and justice for all”.
A Couple of Holding Positions Out of Several: Know Your Gun
One of the most common forms for holding firearms is the Sling Carry. It involves:
“….easy carry for long treks through open country. Keep a hand on the sling when walking so that it doesn’t slide off your shoulder if you trip. Not recommended for thick brush because the gun could be knocked from your shoulder.” (https://www.hunter-ed.com/washington/studyGuide/Firearm-Carrying-Positions/20105001_700046718/, pg. 1)
Two-Handed Carry (aka Ready Carry)
This is a most special form of holding your firearm. It is done by the most professional and licensed individuals out there. According to a wonderful online expert on the matter, this particular gun-carrying position:
“Provides the best control, particularly in thick brush or weeds, or when you need to fire quickly.” (https://www.hunter-ed.com/washington/studyGuide/Firearm-Carrying-Positions/20105001_700046718/, pg. 1)
Open Carry vs. Concealed Carry
Every U.S. individual has the right to openly carry a firearm in public where is not prohibited by law. This comes with certain obligations and legal requirements. One may carry concealed as well again where is not prohibited by law. One’s right is one’s honor and privilege in this matter. Many Americans who can carry their guns openly in the public feel free to do so, and they justly argue to defend this right.
It is their right, and many feel safer. Others do not. Yet this right must not be removed. It stands at the very center of American’s previously established Constitutional rights. Certain carrying guidelines may be implemented, such as how often to carry and how to carry or when best to carry.
America is a free country, and one must always be prepared to take action when threats arise, be they foreign or domestic. Any threat involving the U.S. from within or without must be handled immediately, implementing safety and protection.
