American Concealed- Firearms.

Tom's Journal.

    I have heard and read that ladies who live in Austria and Germany are now buying handguns at a rapid place, as they should,  because of the Islamic rape invasion.   Every lady I have even dated --- I showed and trained with firearms and edged weapons, so that they could adeptly protect themselves [not from me.... LOL] but strangers and evil men who might want to violate them and hurt them !    Education only opens up the mind to real possibilities .... and just like Military training,  you never forget how to defend yourself and your loved ones.  And it never, ever hurts to have a PLAN of Action, just in case you need to,  "Get out of Dodge" quickly, and meet in a preconceived place of safety....  you, your wife and children ! !   Now, friends,  this doesn't mean that we Conservative gentle people are wearing tin foil hats and are stark raving Paranoid nut jobs !!   Just like:  We shall all have a 'fire escape PLAN of Action, too.'    And then, after you have all these 'plans' all set up and working,  you can all just park all that info in the back of your mind, and enjoy life to the fullest !   Smile !  Go do your 'happy dance.'   

     I listened to a long, important video last night before I 'hit the hay,' from a Financial, world renown expert whom I trust, who showed 5 charts that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt,  that the USA simply CANNOT pay off it's national debt in any way, shape, or manner, and a huge crash is in store for Americans [and other countries-- as we are all linked together...] !   I just don't feel prepared for this butt-kicking, horrible event, and most of my friends and relatives are not rich either.   And if most people want to PRETEND or act ignorant like a huge, big bird that buries it's head in the sand....  that is their funeral.   I know that some folks just have dire circumstances where they are snowed under with huge debts, medical costs and stinking low wages.   I don't have any excuses for myself...   except to say that I DID have a good plan,  but my recent "relationship" with a certain lady didn't work out and now our combined power and strategy is kaput.  [Kaput, in German, means dead or broke].   So,  right now, with my limited resources,  I am doing as much as I can to prepare,  but I am putting all my bets on Salvation and Protection from my Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.   And I pray to the "FATHER" [Jehovah, or Yahweh,  YHWH],   every single day and night... THROUGH the Son, Jesus.   It is only thru the Son, Jesus, that we are 'Justified, Sanctified, and able to reach the Father.'   And the Holy Spirit is/ lives/ dwells, inside of every one of us true Believers/ true Christians.    If you have a computer and a KJV Bible,  you can do a lot of good research on this subject.   We would do this research and study, not just to save our hides...  but out of love and appreciation for the air we breathe every minute.   

Warm Regards,
Tom  Schuckman

States That Allow Concealed Carry

With more and more people deciding to purchase guns to protect themselves, one of the most asked questions is about which states allow concealed carry and which states allow open carry. Open carry refers to having a gun on you, but in plain sight. It must be in a holster and it must be visible by others. Many people confuse open carry with concealed carry, which is when you can carry a gun but keep it hidden.
States That Allow Concealed Carry
Every state– including the District of Columbia– allows the carrying of concealed weapons in some form. Forty-two states generally require a state-issued permit in order to carry concealed weapons in public (“CCW” permit).  The remaining eight (Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming) generally allow individuals to carry concealed weapons in public without a permit. (However, seven of these eight states still issue CCW permits; individuals may desire them to qualify for an exemption from federal law’s background check requirements when purchasing a firearm, or so that they may carry concealed weapons in other states). Additionally, Mississippi allows individuals to carry concealed loaded handguns in public without a permit only if the handgun is kept in a purse, satchel, briefcase, or similar item, or in  a fully enclosed case.
Of the 42 states that generally require a CCW permit in order to carry concealed weapons in public, nine states have “may issue” laws, which grant the issuing authority wide discretion to deny a CCW permit to an applicant if, for example, the authority believes the applicant lacks good character or lacks a good reason for carrying a weapon in public. The other 33 states have “shall issue” laws, which require the issuing authority to grant most CCW permit requests. “Shall issue” laws can be further subdivided into states that provide no discretion to the issuing authority, and states which provide the issuing authority a limited amount of discretion.
Nearly every state places some restrictions on where concealed firearms may be carried, including restrictions in bars, schools, and hospitals, and at public sporting events. Info taken from according to the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Exceptions You Need to Know
Even though some states allow open carry, establishments in those states may not want patrons to exercise their right to have a weapon with them. Some of these larger estamblishment are Target, Starbucks, and Chipotle. While they cannot make people not carry, they can post that weapons are not allowed in their store.
The laws for open carry are for handguns. Long guns have different restrictions, so they may not be allowed in the states allowing open carry with or without a permit or license. This is important for hunters to know.
Will It Change?
Lawmakers discuss open and concealed carry often. Many advocates continuously fight for the right to bear arms, especially the National Rifle Association. According to the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, “The National Rifle Association strongly supports conceal carry and open carry, and we will continue to lead the charge to protect and expand the right to self defense for law abiding American throughout the country.”
Gun rights may change, so keep an eye on those changes if you’re considering carrying. Start by visiting your local gun shop, if you’re lucky enough to live in a city that has one, and get to know the people there. Ask questions. They can help you  understand what the current law is and what you can or cannot do.
