WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT SELF DEFENSE/CONCEALED CARRY AND OTHER SELF PROTECTION ADVICE
Christians may be somewhat reticent to carry a weapon, particularly those that are brainwashed in the big cities about how they're not needed, that the police will defend and protect you, and other such nonsense. These liberal lies are just nonsense and the facts don't bear them out to be true. In fact, just the opposite. In a robbery or home invasion or other confrontation with an armed and deadly assailant, you have literally seconds to defend yourself. If you can't escape or get away and you're faced with deadly force or you have substantial reason to believe your life is in danger - you can and should defend your life in any way possible and necessary. But the police will only be there to write the report because these events happen in seconds and are over in usually under 1 minute. There is no time for the police to come and help you. You are on your own for probably the first 5-7 minutes and maybe as much as 20-30 minutes if you live in a more rural area. That's a long, long time to have to count on someone else to defend your family when you have a drug crazed rapist/murderer/thief that just entered your house. Think about it. Think about how much damage a person like this can do to you, your wife, your daughter, before the police even know something is happening! What if you couldn't get to the phone and dial 911? What if you don't have a neighbor that can see that you're being raped and beaten? I'm being graphic for a reason - I want you to understand that YOU AND ONLY YOU are responsible for your own life and your own safety in the first 30 minutes of a conflict. It's just you against the drug crazed maniac with a knife. The police will not be there except to write a report of who died at the scene. Whose name do you want in the report?
In a nutshell, I highly recommend women look into carrying a concealed weapon. They are the ones most likely to get attacked in a dark garage or be put in a life endangering situation as bad guys think they can overpower women and have their way with them. It's been happening since the beginning of time, but women, you have the ability to even the field now with a carry license and lots of practice with your firearm. Also, if you're a woman home alone - you're vulnerable. Bad guys look for a woman home alone at home during the day as a perfect target. It's when you let your guard down, leave the doors unlocked, leave the garage door open, that they stroll in and take advantage. And in your own home, you can carry a gun on your belt without it being concealed if you like. It's your home, and inside your home, on your property, there is no law we know of that prevents you from carrying a gun around with you in plain view as long as you do it on your property and stay on your property. Otherwise you will need to conceal it and have a license to carry.
So what does the Bible say about it? Exodus 22 says "If the thief is found breaking in and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed." Proverbs 25-26 says "A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring, a polluted well." In other words, if you turn a blind eye to the evil and violence of others, you are useless. If you see lethal danger coming to someone else, particularly the weak, the old, the infirm, it is God's wish that you aid that person. Psalm 82-4 says "Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked." As a licensed, armed person, you are in a unique position to defend your home, your family members, and those that are weak, needy, sick, infirm.
If you've never heard of the 21 foot rule, let me brief you. An assailant can move 21 feet from you and have a knife in your throat or body in under 2 seconds. Doesn't matter if he is tall, short skinny or fat - he can strike a killing blow within 2 seconds even if he is 21 feet away from you. What does this mean? The 21 foot rule is used often in training and in defending people that have had to use their gun in self defense. If he's got a knife and he's charging towards you with it, you have a right to protect yourself. Right now. Because we know that he can kill you within 2 seconds and that is a fact that is widely recognized in courts of law. It is also why people with concealed carry licenses practice drawing and firing so that they can recognize the threat, pull the gun, and fire accurately enough to protect themselves, all in under 2 seconds.
And remember - if you ever are involved in a self defense shooting, NEVER EVER TALK TO THE POLICE AFTERWARDS. You simply say, "I will be happy to cooperate with you AFTER I talk to my attorney." That is when you shut the hell up and hand the police your attorney's business card which you should carry with you at all times if you are a concealed carry permit holder. The police will write up a report on everything you said, or even be recording it. The DA is likely to be a liberal puke that will want to put you in jail and is looking for a way to charge you with something even if it is clearly self-defense. That's just who is in our government in a lot of area's particularly in cities, and in states like CA, MA, NY, IL, and CT. You just can't sweep all the liberal appointee's of the Clintons and Obama era's out all at once.
The decision to get a carry license isn't one to be taken lightly. If you get one, you need to practice a lot and frequently so that you will be able to recognize when to use it and when not to use it, and if called upon to use it, you will do so flawlessly and efficiently and righteously.
