CONSTITUTIONAL / PERMITLESS CARRY – A good arguement

Keep in mind, it is constitutional ‘carry’ not constitutional ownership.

It is all well and good until it is your 9-year-old son, daughter, neice, nephew, grandson or granddaughter. Maybe not everyone should carry a gun in public.

Florida – Two children shot during Nassau County road rage incident, fathers are charged with attempted murder

Two children were rushed to the hospital after being shot Saturday on U.S. 1 after their fathers were shooting at each other during a road rage incident.

October 10, 2022

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. — A 5-year-old girl was shot in the leg and a 14-year-old girl was shot in the back Saturday while riding in separate vehicles on U.S. 1 in Callahan just after 6 p.m. Their injuries were the result of their fathers shooting at each other during a road rage incident, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said Monday during a news conference.

“What is scarier than one crazy driver with a gun? Two crazy drivers with a gun,” Leeper said.

The drivers the sheriff was referring to are William Hale, 36, and Frank Allison, 43.Both men are charged with attempted murder. They didn’t know each other before the incident that a witness described as a “cat and mouse game,” Leeper said. The witness told a 911 operator that the men were driving erratically and “brake-checking” each other. That’s when a driver gets in front of another vehicle and applies the brakes.

The sheriff said a black Dodge Ram with five occupants driven by Hale of Douglas, Ga. pulled up along side the grey Nissan Murano driven by Allison of Callahan and began shouting at him to pull over.

The right front passenger in the Nissan put her hand out of the window and “flipped off” the Dodge Ram with her middle finger, Leeper said. A plastic water bottle was then tossed from the Dodge Ram into the Nissan.

Allison then grabbed his Sig Saur 45mm handgun and fired one shot at Hale’s truck before speeding away, Leeper said. The bullet went through the right rear door hitting the 5 year old in the leg.

Hale told authorities he realized his daughter was shot after Allison sped off. Hale pursued the Nissan and began firing several shots from his Glock 43 9mm handgun out of the driver’s window with his left hand, Leeper said adding that the shooter emptied the clip.

Three rounds hit the Nissan with one of the bullets going through the rear of the car striking a 14-year-old girl in the back causing her lung to collapse.

Deputies brought him to the Volusia County Branch Jail and he was given a bond of $40,000.


In September 2021, Texas enacted its ‘Constitutional Carry’ law. Below is a example of what has occured since then.

Another Class of Trained Public Guardians Graduated

We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license.  We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

This past weekend we graduated another class of advanced, concealed carry guardians.  They did not complete just another “concealed carry’ class, like those conducted at gun shows, gun shops or in rented hotel rooms. They completed over 15 hours of advanced, tactical, handgun training.  You read that correctly, over 15 hours.

These advanced, trained graduates will have your back while you are shopping, fueling your vehicle or attending church services.Rest assured, there are trained people out there carrying concealed firearms among you.  They may be far and few between, but they are there. 

We make every effort to train as many people as possible.  But, we can only train those who register to be qualified to carry a deadly weapon in public.

We don’t want to train everyone who wants a concealed carry license.  We only want to train those who are serious about learning how to defend their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

Others conduct classes to qualify people to apply for a concealed carry license. We conduct classes to not only to qualify people to apply for a concealed carrry license, we qualify people to carry a deadly weapon in public.

If your concealed carry class did not look like the photos above, you may want to contact us for real, concealed carry, firearms training.

Not all concealed carry classes are alike.


Florida Alert!!! YOU LOOT — WE SHOOT!

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a moral plea against looting that appears to have some firepower behind it.

Updated: New & Revised (9-30-2022) : Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a moral plea against looting that appears to have some firepower behind it.

Florida Alert!!! YOU LOOT — WE SHOOT!

DATE: July 7, 2020
TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

By Marion P. Hammer

Record numbers of firearms have been purchased over the past couple of months in Florida and around our nation. Many of the firearms were – and are – purchased by people who never thought they would want or need a gun. Firearms training classes are full and booked for months ahead. Florida Tax Collectors are reporting huge increases in the number of Concealed Weapon or Firearm License applications being processed locally.

Around the country, professional rioters and violent protesters have been destroying private property.

These acts of violence are soon followed by looters who help themselves to what’s left. These are not acts of civil disobedience; these are planned and orchestrated acts of domestic terrorism.

People around the nation are getting fed up and are buying guns, getting trained and are preparing to protect what they have worked hard to achieve.

We’ve seen people wake up and take responsibility for themselves and their property before.

In August 1992, Hurricane Andrew hit Miami/Dade County, Florida. The destruction was massive. During the news coverage in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, a warning from residents to looters emerged. Images flashed across TV screens on national TV and the message was clear. Hand scrawled on a piece of building debris: “You Loot – We Shoot!” Spray painted on garage doors: “You Loot – We Shoot!” Painted across the front of damaged homes: “You Loot – We Shoot!”

Hurricane Andrew had damaged and destroyed much of what Dade County residents owned, and they did not intend to lose anything else to looters and roving gangs.

Throughout the television coverage of the plight of hundreds of thousands of residents left homeless by – what at the time was – this nation’s worst hurricane disaster, we saw many people refusing to leave the rubble they once called home. They were armed and standing guard to protect what little they had left. There was even a report from Miami of a police officer on local TV telling residents if they needed security, they’d better get a gun – police couldn’t help them.

Even after the National Guard arrived, residents reported to the media that they still had to protect themselves because when the sun went down, the soldiers disappeared and residents were once again on their own.

During this TV coverage the overwhelming majority of firearms that residents were using for protection were semi-automatic firearms – firearms would be banned as so-called “assault weapons” by gun ban organizers.

Such tragic disasters often make folks open their eyes to the importance of firearms for protection and the outrageous restriction of gun control laws – particularly waiting period laws and gun ban laws. When you need a firearm for protection you can’t wait and you need the firearm best suited to stop gangs of intruders!

Those whose anti-gun philosophy is manufactured in air-conditioned offices or in homes with electronic security systems and iron gates should take heed. When their anti-gun counterparts in Miami, became victims of a disaster, they quickly had a new perspective on the importance of the Second Amendment’s guarantee of the right of the People to keep and bear arms.

Hurricane Andrew is not the only time Floridians have stepped up to protect their families and their homes with firearms following hurricane disasters; it just hasn’t been widely reported in the anti-gun, anti-self-defense media.

Today, the ice cold reality of self-reliance settles in when people observe professional protesters rioting with violence and destruction. That’s why they are buying guns.
