If you’re a woman who sells residential real estate you are well aware of the rapes, robberies and murders that are too often a part of the job. If you feel that your life and livelihood are equally important you deserve the necessary mindset and proper tool to insure your own survival.
I don’t care what you’ve been told; the only meaningful self-defense that’s obtainable is though a handgun. If you’ve been told otherwise the misinformation came from an ignorant person or perhaps police officials following the dictates of the gun rights hating politicians and bureaucrats that control them. If handguns were not effective the police would not carry or use them.
I don’t care what the local laws where you work prohibit. I don’t care what your employer and his insurance company have to say. Your employer or the local police are not there protecting you during that open house showing. If you can get a concealed weapon permit, do so. If you can’t get a concealed weapon permit carry a handgun anyway.
That said, your firearm is not going to be helpful without the training needed to use this lifesaver. Training is available most everywhere in the care, operation, safety, and laws concerning liability and the justifiable use of deadly force.
Don’t carry a gun in your purse because an attacker may capture it from you. Instead put in a holster under a blazer, sweater or jacket. There are great belt and shoulder holsters that work well on women.
Don’t carry tiny guns unless you’re hunting for mice. Only carry a .38 cal, 9MM or larger for effective self-defense.
If you have and use a firearm for legitimate self-defense the penalties you may face in some jurisdictions for possession or concealed carry are but a slap on the wrist. You can’t be punished for defending yourself. Your life is worth more than that of some politician making public restrictive gun rights policy from his or her well-protected ivory tower.
If you have to shoot someone call a lawyer instead of 911. Let the lawyer call the cops for you. What you tell a lawyer can’t be used against you but what you tell the cops can. Only talk to your lawyer and who he or she tells you no matter how nice the cops are to you.
Support your own right to exist and be safe by demanding your politicians protect your right to keep and carry a gun for self-defense.
