Good Information but...
on February 18, 2012
I purchased this thinking that I would get soem new insights on concealed carrying. With the way society is going, I want to be able to defend and protecte myself, my loved ones, and my property. This is essentially a pamphlet with little articles dedicated to different aspects of concealed carry. The first 2 or 3 articles pretty much soured me on the whole pamphlet. These chapters talk about the right to carry, which is fine. However, the author-Robert Boatman, come sof as an overzealous gun nut, whose only purpose is to to attack the left, liberals, and other anti-gun individuals. He even insults their intelligence often. I understand, being a gun owner myself, supporting the 2nd Amendement. But when you are trying to educate individuals on something serious, better to focus on the task at hand than to use the platform to make vile attacks against people who you disagree with. Just because you disagree with them, doesn;t mean that they don't have valid concerns. Instead, he comes off as a person who is trying to gather sheep into his fold and to get them to have this hate for people who oppose gun owners. It's irresponsible and hurts the gun community more than it helps.
Once you get past the vitriolic garbage, there is some very good information. Mostly, things to consider as you entertain the idea of carrying concealed firearms to protect yourself. I especially give high praise to the sections by Paul Benjamin,Oleg Volk, and Steve Krystek and Micheal Potter. Those sections are exactly what a pamphlet of this type should be like.
