Awareness: The First Step in Achieving an Armed and Polite Society

Every nation is dreaming of an armed society that it also polite. An armed citizen in America, however, is not automatically the most educated one.armed-society-85231645
The so-called “conditions of readiness” by self-described liberal Democrat Dan Baum in a Harper’s essay is a good example to this. He has talked about his experience with a concealed weapon.
Baum wrote that “condition white” is full unconsciousness to a person’s environment. These instances include being drunk or stoned, sleeping, texting while listening to music, losing oneself in a conversation or sleeping.
The so-called “yellow condition,” on the other hand, is being aware of and having interest in the surroundings. “Condition Orange” is being aware of a threat that may arrive.
“Condition red” is acting in response to danger while “condition white” unifies the society almost as much as does fealty to the Second Amendment. This means that the constitutional prerequisite to the right to bear arms appear more about responsibility.
Earlier this year, lawmakers from North Carolina came up with an idea. That is to allow high school students take gun classes. This way, they will be able to learn about the responsibility that comes with handling a gun, which can claim lives of innocent people if placed in the wrong hands.
There is no denying that America is awash in guns. North Carolina lawmakers argued that the next generation must be aware about how to use the weapon in the safest way possible.

Doug’s Shoot’n Sports supports this stand. It offers concealed weapons class for adults and kids classes for children 3 to10 years old. The kids class is based upon the NRA Eddie Eagle program where children will learn how to respond appropriately when they seen a gun.
The class for kids is a safety class. It is a fun activity for the kids because they will get the chance to bond with other kids in each of these classes. The best thing about it is that the gun store offers it for free!
For Doug’s Shoot’n Sports, offering free kids class is a way to promote gun safety among children. These classes are typically on Saturday afternoon but parents can also set a schedule anytime. Adults, on the other hand, can enjoy a Utah concealed carry class.
Adults, teens and kids must be aware about the obligation that comes with guns. The weapon is meant to keep an individual, a family and a society safe. However, it can also be very dangerous when not handled appropriately.
American kids have shoot people on a weekly basis going back as far as 2015. Guns are also used in suicide cases.
The Injury Prevention has found that only 15 percent of those who own a gun reported obtaining firearm training on suicide prevention. At least 62 percent of gun deaths in the US between 2011 and 2015 were suicide. Therefore, guns must be kept in a safe place and should not be easily accessible.

Police Officers to Be Asked If They Want to Routinely Carry a Gun

A survey for police officers in England will ask if they wish to routinely carry a gun. At least 123,000 officers will participate in the survey.
The survey is the first of its kind. Police officers will be asked about dropping the principle of usually being unarmed.
The federation’s firearms head Che Donald said the question of routinely arming police officers is challenging. He believes that with the current climate, it is about time to seek the opinions of their members again. He explained that the survey intends to collect the view of the members on the issue of routine arming, establishing a fresh national view.
Donald said several forces have been surveyed individually on the same issue over the past years. The news of the survey comes as latest figures show that the number of firearms operations by the police last year rose by 7 percent. Gun and knife crime jumped.
636046215443097272-CRIME-gen-NP.jpgHe noted that recent crime statistics indicate that gun crime was up by 23 percent, The Telegraph reported. Knife crime, on the other hand, saw an increase of 20 percent.
Home Office data indicated a first rise in firearms operations. A total of 15,705 incidents in the 12 months to March were recorded.

The Westminster terror attack was reportedly covered by this period. The Manchester and the London Bridge attacks followed, with several members of the innocent public dead. Furthermore, the Home Office data revealed an increase of 639 armed officers from the previous year.
In the United States, a new study has found that several gun owners in the country have no idea how to use their weapons. The study was published in the journal Injury Prevention and conducted by University of Washington School of Public Health researchers.
An examination of World Health Organization data showed that gun homicide rates are higher in the United States than in other advanced countries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported more than 11,000 gun homicides in 2013.
In the same year, CDC listed at least 505 deaths from the accidental discharge of firearms in the country. Another alarming issue is that it has been increasingly complicated to measure accidental gun deaths in the United States when the CDC data does not consistently assess national incidents.

Given these issues, all gun owners must know responsible gun handling by heart. Attending a concealed weapons class is an ideal way to learn about safety, appropriate gun handling and operation as well as the laws regarding concealed carry.
Doug’s Shoot’n Sports, a shooting range in Utah, offers this type of class. Classes are scheduled on Tuesday nights from 6 to 10 PM. Lessons are also being taught on Saturday mornings from 8 to noon. A group class can be scheduled according to its website.
The company also offers kids classes for free. Through the class, kids will be able to learn about the proper ways to respond when they see a gun.
