TIRED OF ALL THE RUMORS GOING AROUND ABOUT THE NEW PERMITLESS "CONCEALED CARRY"??

PEOPLE ARE STILL CONFUSED ABOUT THE NEW LAW(S) PASSING. THIS IS AS SIMPLE AS I CAN PUT IT...

Anywhere outside the State of MS.

Any place of nuisance as defined in Section 95-3-1.

Any police, sheriff or highway patrol station.

Any detention facility, prison or jail.

Any courthouse.

Any courtroom, except that nothing in this section shall preclude a judge from carrying a concealed weapon or determining who will carry a concealed weapon in his/her courtroom.

SUPREME COURT RULING:

Warren v District of Columbia

Police Have No Duty To Protect The General Public

People who don’t understand taking responsibility for your own safety often ask why someone wouldn’t just call the police to stop a crime instead of drawing a gun. Well for one, a great police response time would be 1-2 minutes, but most crimes take place in a matter of seconds. Two, police have no duty to protect me, or you.

Based on the headline of this article you might think this is an important new ruling, but it’s not. The court has kept this stance for over 30 years.

The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that police officers at all levels of the government have no duty to protect the citizens of this country.

It is the job of police officers to investigate crimes and arrest criminals.

We are on our own for protection.

While we are quite sure most police officers will help someone in need when required, just remember the next time you feel you might need protection that police officers have no duty to provide that to you. 

                             

 

  

 "A clandestine operation orchestrated by a group of private citizens who set out to make history by abolishing a 130 year old law. Reeks of trickery and deceit but meticulously engineered to be successful. Surreptitiously manipulated and told by a Master of his craft, a subject matter expert. The result would be a major revision in the concealed weapon law that would make history but start what some have erroneously referred to as a recall of the Wild West!"

When you encounter signs posted by ignorant politicians after July 1st, it will be your responsibility to collect the evidence. But that should give you some feel of ownership in the process.

When you deal with politicians on their turf keep in mind:

Go forth with an olive branch in one hand and an arrow in the other. Go there with your knowledge of the law and a copy in your pocket. Go there with the understanding that adults find it difficult to accept change. But go there with the determination that you will prevail. Go there with one thought in mind...that you will Stand Your Ground!

        YOUR COUNTY SUPERVISORS ARE TRYING TO SCREW YOU!!!

 

YOUR CITY ALDERMEN AND MAYORS WILL BE NEXT - THEY ARE LOBBYING TO KEEP GUNS OUT OF ALL GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS. THEY DO NOT WANT HB-314 TO PASS.

When HB 506 passed in 2011, MCA 97-37-1 was revised to allow guns in Court HOUSEs but not Court ROOMS only DURING judicial proceedings. That meant the legislature understood and realized that the propensity for violence only existed in a court ROOM and DURING a proceeding. We know that tempers rise in court ROOMs. Peoples' lives are affected harshly at times. Parents lose their children, county prisoners are sentenced to the state penitentiary, death sentences are handed out, people are sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Absolutely, a court ROOM can be a dangerous place. However, that is not true of the office where you get a marriage license, a car tag, a land deed and so on. Our state legislators realized that...but our county supervisors don't.

I learned a long time ago as head of security for various Navy Installations that you CANNOT protect everything. It is too costly, too manpower intensive, too difficult to control. So how do we know what to protect? You conduct a Threat Assessment/Threat Analysis. First you identify the threat usually based on intelligence information. You assess their capabilities, then analyze the threat probability along with what affect that type of threat would have on the area to be protected and whether or not it would cease operations. If not how long and how crippled would the every day business be. Next you would do a Vulnerability Analysis to determine how vulnerable the facility is to the threat and what counter measures could be employed to minimize and mitigate the threat. You then look at cost and funds/equipment/technology available to you and decide how and what to protect.

The Supervisors are trying to say that every county building has a propensity for attack, everybody is a potential attacker, any attack would cease all operations, all buildings are vulnerable and the tax payers can pay for enforcement of all gun bans on all buildings, while we, the tax payers are the ones having our rights taken away. The Supervisors expect us to rely on them to protect us while we disarm ourselves and leave our guns in our cars while auto burglaries are at an all time high.

Those of us with enhanced endorsed permits who took the classes, spent our time learning and our money for the service with the understanding from the legislature that because of our training and background searches, we would be able to transverse county buildings should be outraged! Why? Because guess what, you can bet your bottom dollar many of the supervsors are carrying guns into the courthouses and many have not even had the training. I suspect some are carrying without a permit and have never had a background check done even though ours are consistent with new hire police personnel.

GO ASK YOUR SUPERVISORS WHERE THEY STAND ON THEIR ASSOCIATION FIGHTIING THE LAW THEY DON'T WANT TO OBEY. YOU KNOW WHY THEY DON'T WANT THE LAW? BECAUSE WE WILL BE ABLE TO SUE THEM PERSONALLY FOR VOTING LOCALLY TO VIOLATE A STATE LAW! NOT ONE DIME WILL BE AT THE TAX PAYER'S EXPENSE. WHILE YOU ARE AT IT TELL THEM YOU WILL HELP SEE TO IT THAT THEY WON'T NEED TO COME TO THE COURTHOUSE AFTER THE NEXT ELECTION BECAUSE THEY WON'T HAVE A JOB. IT IS THIS SERIOUS PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO FIGHT THESE LAW BREAKING LUNATICS THAT NEED TO GO HOME!

CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS AND TELL THEM THE TO VOTE FOR HB-314.

I have withdrawn my membership from Mississippi Gun Owners.com because of the lack of professionalism by several members. I have devoted my recent time writing articles for  Mississippi Gun News.com. I strongly encourage you to check out their site and read some great stories. There are few comments although any are invited. However, I am confident that the site manager will head off any childish and/or argumentative responses. Please visit them at: http://www.mississippigunnews.com/. When I was on the other site mentioned above, I tried to keep people informed of what was going on with legislation, DPS, Training, etc. but the yo-yo's came out of the woodwork. I have decided now to submit those informational subjects in the form of articles to Mississippi Gun News. So if you have read my work and would like to continue reading what I write, that's where you need to go. 

PISTOL PACKING MAMA'S AT OUR FIRST LADIES ONLY CLASS

(Pictured from left to right) Jo Ann Todd, Patty Rogers, Tina Holmes and Amanda Rogers

Newest certified pistol packers strut their stuff in Collins. Posing here with their side-arms under a tent with man-sized silhouette targets in the background, these ladies achieved high scores. They came from all around the Collins area for the best in gun safety and firearms training.

The new Collins Pistol Range at 83 Walker Lane offered its first “Ladies Only” basic pistol class this past weekend with seven students. The class was a big success with over half the students returning the following day for the Enhanced Concealed Carry Firearms Course. Two straight days of shooting can easily tire the best of manly shooters but these ladies stood up to the test.

They left the Collins Range with comments like, “the best class I ever had,” “now, I know much more about handguns than I ever expected,” and “I would highly recommend this course to anybody.” Jo Ann Todd of Mount Olive boasted the highest score on her team (93) and the highest of all the ladies, surpassing most of the men in the second day of Enhanced Training.

Doing business as Concealedweaponcarry.com, the owners of the Collins Range plan to continue offering “Ladies Only,” “Men’s Basic,” “Enhanced Concealed Carry,” and the soon to come, “Competition Shooting for Newcomers” class. For information, call Rick Ward at 601 665 6088.

Soon everyone will know how we got open carry in Mississippi! (watch for my new book)

As of now, the Governor doesn't even know and he signed the bill into law!

Sean Cooper, Certified Firearms Instructor for the State of Mississippi

When selecting an instructor, remember, an expert shooter is not necessarily an expert instructor.  Also half the training you need for enhanced carry is related to Mississippi laws. Not knowing the law can cost you your freedom, your permit, your gun and your money. Instructors without extensive law enforcement backgrounds usually know very little about the law.

There are over 160 enhanced instructors listed on the MHP website. Few will travel the State to cater to your needs and few will provide the training for $100 or less.

HAVE GUN - WILL TRAVEL (Training offered statewide)  Will train any day of week and/or weekends.

MISSISSIPPI PERMITS ARE ACCEPTED UNDER RECIPROCITY AGREEMENTS WITH 25 OTHER STATES!

6 hours classroom - 2 hours range time
