Perhaps this article will urge some “old timers” to reminisce about one of their favorite Holiday celebrations: I was 12 years old on a Thanksgiving Day morning when dad asked me if I would like to go rabbit hunting with him, for a few hours, while mom was preparing the year’s most enjoyable feast. What a thrill is was to go hunting with a great sportsman and family provider while using his 20 gage, 3-shot, bolt action, Sears & Roebuck shot gun for the first time.
He taught me hunting skills, including safety practice, in prior years as I combed fields with him and my Daisy “Red Rider” BB gun. Money was scarce in those days besides, hunting game was an exciting event that also put food on the table. It was my first day to demonstrate skills as a hunter and family provider on that early morning as I bagged two rabbits within the first 15 minutes.
Dad was overwhelmed; my heart was pounding out of control as I envisioned no further need for a BB gun, and, before morning was up, he added four more bunnies with his “infallible” 12 gage double barrel shotgun that never missed. He wasn’t best at dealing with life’s problems, but, I will always remember sharing these thrilling moments with an awesome hunter and sportsman.
During those years I had no idea; comfort with guns, safety awareness and need for protection in today’s society would encourage me to Concealed Carry. Good citizens then owned guns mainly for the purpose of sport shooting and hunting. Some anti-gun extremists now claim; hunting is no longer required and therefore, we should all get rid of our guns, but; will criminals agree to this “bright” idea?
Obvious non-compliance, from lawbreakers, is why Concealed Carry is quickly gaining recognition in the United States with more than 11 million people. Our social environment is changing, plus guns will continue to serve as tools for hunting and sport shooting while Concealed Carry creates a major demand for domestic firearms. Disciplined Concealed Carry behavior promotes respect and acceptance from the general public, same as good hunting and shooting sport practice has done in past years.
Thanksgiving was declared an official holiday by Abe Lincoln in 1863. Let’s thank our God for this great country, plus help someone in need. I sincerely wish each one a Happy Thanksgiving…Be safe, enjoy life and…Keep on Packin dude.
