The answer is unequivocally YES!
Dangerous = able or likely to cause harm or injury.
Whether you are legally or illegally armed – an armed person is more dangerous than an unarmed person.
Yet, all conceal carry people have a serious issue with this fact.
Look, I’m a second amendment person – and the simple fact you arm yourself is to use deadly force if needed – which by definition makes you more dangerous than an unarmed person.
If you’re armed legally, or illegally I have no way of knowing your intent, skill level and proficiency.
In the street – I don’t know who you are…and I want to know as much about my surroundings as possible…and that means, I’m sizing you up and you should do the same.
If you’re armed I know this about you…
- You are willing to use deadly force if needed.
- You understand that the use of violence is possible and necessary.
The same can be said for ANYONE who trains and prepares to deal with violence — ME INCLUDED!!!
The real question is – is anyone who practices any form of self defense more dangerous than someone who doesn’t – YES!!! (it’s the reason we do it).
