Arm yourself or become a victim

To the editor:

Every adult in the USA should learn the lesson of Orlando, Florida.

The police cannot protect you. They can only investigate your death, then arrest and punish the offender after the crime. Police cannot be everywhere.

Lesson to be learned or you could be a victim: you must be able to defend yourself and your family.

If you do not have a permit to carry a weapon and know how to use it, it is an open invitation to become a victim, be it a carjacking, a hold-up or a murder.

You need a weapon in your home and you need to know how to use it. If you do not have a concealed carry permit, go get one today.
