The Top 5 Reasons to get your Concealed Weapons Permit:
We will take a look at the 5 biggest benefits to carrying a concealed carry permit or license regardless if your state is Unrestricted, Shall Issue or May Issue for concealed carry. Unrestricted states still offer licenses for those who wish to apply, and those licenses provide advantages to firearm owners.
1. Licenses let lawmakers know of your intentions
If you’re pulled over by a police officer, and your gun is in the car, it can impact the outcome of the routine traffic stop. Carrying a license for that firearm shows the officer that you have been cleared as a law-abiding citizen, and passed a background check. An unlicensed firearm, however, will leave the officer unaware of any potential criminal history or intent.
2. Permits alleviate the concerns of others
Some states are considered open-carry, which means that the laws allow for you to display your firearm openly in your day-to-day life. This can be alarming to some people, who may question why it’s there. Showing your permit can help them understand that you’ve been cleared by the local government to carry a firearm, and that your intent is simply personal protection.
3. Licenses allow firearm owners to carry in more public areas
Rather than be restricted to having a firearm in your home or car, having a concealed weapons permit allows you to carry in most places.
4. Licenses educate firearm owners on laws that could save their lives
The process to obtain state concealed carry licenses involves a lengthy lesson, in which permit-holders learn about gun safety, local laws, and how to conduct yourself when in possession of a firearm.
5. Licenses make it easier to buy firearms
All states require background checks each time a weapon is purchased, due to the laws and regulations of the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). However, many states waive the background check requirement if the purchaser has a concealed carry license. States do this because the holder of the license has already undergone the required background check in the process of obtaining the license. This makes your next trip to the gun store smoother and quicker.
In closing, if your state requires the possession of a concealed carry license before owning and carrying a firearm, then you will need one to lawfully carry your weapon anyway. But if your state does not require a license, still consider getting one. As we have discussed, licenses include many benefits that can both keep firearm owners safe and more trustworthy around police and teach the laws of the state and what you need to know to keep yourself out of jail.
