You still see vestiges of the old Gun Culture of America. We have laws that talk about only allowing “Sporting” firearms, or restricting guns because they have “No Sporting Purpose”, or people saying “Why do you need [Gun X]? You can’t hunt with it!”
We still have sport and hunting guns (and we always will, because as long as the 2nd Amendment exists in its original intent we will always allow hunting and sport shooting) but the new gun culture is about defensive guns.
Wisconsin residents have overwhelmed the state Justice Department with so many concealed weapon permit applications agency officials say they probably won’t meet deadlines for issuing approvals this month despite pulling dozens of employees from other tasks to help.
These people aren’t buying guns to shoot ducks, deer, or pieces of paper (Tho they may do one or all of those activities in the currently or in the near future) they’re getting guns to carry defensively. Not only is OWNING guns part of American Culture, but CARRYING guns is too. KEEP AND BEAR Arms, just like the Amendment says.
The Anti-rights cultists are simply anti-American, and if they don’t like it, they can leave.
As for those of you new to carrying, you might find this article interesting! Carry your guns, you never know when you might need them!
