I will remeber that when you child is being beat down in front of me. Im calling 911 see ya. They will be here in a minute.:crazy_pilot:
Y'know, women aren't always weak. Some of us have our own CCWs. But it's nice to know there are people looking out for other people, both men and women.
AL and NH do not have a fingerprinting or training requirement. WA State is big on the mental health check as there are more per capita mental health professionals in the greater SeaTac area than any other State. Some States are big on training; Nevada is. It's all about what the given State decides is acceptable for issuance of their respective CCW. All States that go shall issue go through the "blood in the streets" period.I intend to apply for my Washington CCW permit as soon as my regular driver's license arrives, and i have quite a few insights on this I would like to share. I was an LEO in Arizona, and after I left the department, I had a CCW permit. I read on the website the requirements for a Washington permit, and I must say I am a bit concerned. It say you must pay the fee and submit two sets of fingerprints for a background check....period. Arizona required the successful completion of a 32 hour course, which covers the laws in Arizona on when you may use deadly force, maintenance of your weapon and a written test as well as a qualification shoot on a range. Washington says pay the fee and pass a background check, nothing at all about any training or demonstrating you know which end of the gun the bullets go in. Arizona law, under justification for use of deadly force, lists felonies where any citizen may use any amount of force up to and including lethal physical force to prevent the coomission of. This list includes Armed Robbery, Sexual Assault and Arson of an Occupied Structure. When they first introduced the bill for the permits, sheriffs and cheifs of police badmouthed the idea, claiming people would be driving around looking for a bad guy to blow away. This did not happen, and the crime numbers dropped, as the BGs did not know who might be armed.
That woman, Susanna Hupp, became a TX State legislator who could be called the mother of the TX CHL law.In Killeen, TX, there was a restaurant called Luby's, and one day a nutjob walked in and began shooting people willy-nilly. Later, when Texas was considering the CCW permit law, a young woman was interviewd on a television program. She was in Luby's that day, and since there was no CCW permit in Texas then, she was a good little doobie and her gun was locked in her car. She saw her mother and father murdered by this headcase with a gun. She said she vowed then, permit or not, she would never be disarmed again. I am one gun owner who is confident in my knowledge of not only the law, but tactics, that I can agree with her stance.
We don't know what a LEO may be required to do during an undercover assignment.BTW. No cop is ever going to pretend to hold up a business with customers around the place. If one did, he would be suspeneded immediately and ordered to mandatory counseling.
Yes, here's the Link Removed, it was signed into law 2006. One of the few things Empress Janet has done right.I just moved to Arizona from Florida this month and was wondering if Az. has a castle doctrine type law? Florida's stand your ground law had always made sense to me.
If a LEO happens to show up, it will probably be well after the attack. I am not going to stand by and watch a gang of rapists viciously attack a young girl. I am not going to stand by while a gang of punks murders an old man or woman. I will not stand and do nothing, if I have the power to stop a mass gunman slaughtering a bunch of children. Yes I guess you can say "I am my brothers keeper".
