An important task
I renewed my carry-conceal weapon permit at the Wayne Co Sheriff's Office.
I figured it might be the last time I will be able to do so if certain people occupy the White House next year.
What do you need a carry-conceal permit for anyway, Gunzy? You think a deer is going to jump out and steal your wallet?
Of course not. But, it is a freedom that I have, being not only a citizen of Iowa but also of Wayne County, and I am taking advantage of it.
I might be packing, I might not. My neighbors might be in the same position. If a criminal knows this, they are less likely to mess with us folks in Wayne. And, if I feel like buying another Glock, I can go into any gun store in the state and walk out with it the same day. No background checks, as I've had mine done to get the permit.
The point of this is not to brag or show off, but to remind us that free and armed citizens are what keep us from sliding totally off into a totalitarian nightmare.
