Attack in Paris

Attack in Paris

Thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of all the victims of this senseless attack, which took place today in France. Early reports indicate the RPG-wielding perpetrators escaped in a pair of vehicles, hopefully that’s wrong.

undefinedIt’s bound to spark debate about gun rights in Europe versus the United States, and the right of self-defense—but not here, not now, not when law enforcement is searching for the terrorists before they can strike again.

It is, however, a stark reminder. Freedom isn’t free and criminals don’t honor implied safety guarantees. If you have a carry permit, is your gun on you today? Do you have spare magazines or speedloaders? If you’ve declared your willingness to protect you and your family—with a firearm and proper training—until authorities arrive, it’s a 24/7 job, especially in today’s world.
