Absolutely!
This very question has been on my mind since the Paris slaughters.
Just let them try that B.S. here in gun-friendly Florida --- every other resident seems to have a CC permit.

In WA State I think there are now approximately 480,000 active concealed-pistol licenses (CPL's). That is probably an average of 1 in 12 people having their CPL. Not great, but not bad either given liberal Seattle.

Wyoming doesn't even require citizens to have a CCP...so there's a lot of people who carry you just don't know about!

That's what our top CCW group, Florida Carry, is pushing for next.
Thank goodness we have a GOP governor & a GOP-dominated Legislature.

The only reason I think I should get a CCP is reciprocal agreements between Wyoming and other states.

-To be cautious and know what is around you is very big thing.
-See things before they even happens.
So basically keep your eyes open and watch what is around you. Do not block your vision or hearing. (Do not stare only your cellphone/computer or listen music!)

-Have a plan how to react, what you can use as cover or concealment...
...And actually know what is only concealing you and what is giving you a cover!

-Know where/how you can hide or escape...
Once again, keep your eyes open and look these places in your daily basics.
-Know possible escape routes and never corner yourself.

-If you are choosing to fight back and be using your gun, know (count of) your bullets (You don't want to run out of them without knowing it.)
-And know what is behind what you are shooting at. (You do not want to shoot through the enemy and kill your wife/friend/innocent bystanders.)
-Take cover first (if possible) and then start to shoot back.
-If there isn't any cover anywhere near you, make yourself a smaller (if possible) and start shooting straight away your target.
-There might be more attackers than what you first saw.

-One another big thing is to be able to react straight away when something is happening...
It is quite big killer when people start wondering if that sound was a gun shot or if they happen to be middle of movie shooting or prank... If you spend your time wondering if that is happening for real or not, it might be already too late for you.

-Understand normal human stress reactions.
They are freezing, escaping and fighting back. In that order. If you freeze middle of the shooting, it can be really bad thing. So try keep your head and wisdom in game!
With training, you manage break out of these habits more faster and training start to kick in.

-And some last things what I would like to add because people like to talk about guns so much.
Many terrorist favor explosives instead of guns. Explosives are easy to hide, easy to get and easy to use.

Do not assume that someone is going to take gun out of their bag and start shooting around. Or wear black clothes or look like he/she is straight out of the Iraq streets. You do not know what your attacker is looking like. (It is more what they are carrying with them and how they are behaving... Of course dressing can tip them away (Commando mask, tactics vest and rifle is good indicator... ))

Active shootings are happening, but when we talk about terrorists, more likely you should be worrying bags left alone, dumpsters where bomb might have been plant and so on. There might not be any chance for gunfight with terrorists.

Oh yeah, I'm as ready as I could be.

Only the liberal invasives. Anyone who is willing to keep this state as great as it is, and always has been, keeping our cultural identity, traditions and conservative/constitutionalist attitude is welcome in my opinion. We may just need to take Jackson back soon!

If even a fraction of those shorts are cut Daisy Dukes style, you just knocked one of my arguments all to hell.

I live in a state, easily ranked in the top 4 states in terms of pro-gun. We have 'Open Carry', our CCW is 'shall issue', we have Full-Auto and Silencers.

My town has only one store-front business, a gunsmith.

I am not aware of anyone in our town that is not a hunter, trapper and fisherman.

Because every home here is armed, crime is low. Front doors are left unlocked, most folks leave the key in the car. Go into the city, and store parking lots will have at least half of the cars were left running as the people go inside to shop.

I just hope they don't pick some hippie lib gun free zone to hit first. As much as I'd like people to learn their lesson, I'd rather they learn be seeing some bad guys get put down quickly... I fear it would take more than one big body count attack for the hippies to come around anyhow.

I'm ready. They won't hit here I don't think, but I'm ready just in case.
