    South Carolina sheriff tells women to carry concealed firearms

    The sheriff of Spartanburg County, S.C., turned a news conference about an attempted rape in his community into an extended rant Monday in which he slammed a criminal justice system preferred by "liberals" for failing to keep the repeat-offender suspect behind bars -- and implored the women in his community to pack heat for self-protection.

    "I want you to get a concealed weapons permit," Sheriff Chuck Wright said at the Monday news conference, as reported by TV station WYFF. "Don't get Mace. Get a firearm."

    Wright suggested that the women of Spartanburg carry their weapons in fanny packs. "You can conceal a small pistol in them," he said. "They got one called The Judge that shoots a .45 or a .410 shell. You ain't got to be accurate. You just have to get close."


    Gun control, he said, "is when you can get your barrel back on the target quick. That’s gun control."

    Well wow - it is VERY nice to see someone finally advising what women SHOULD be doing to protect ourselves rather than telling us what we SHOULDN'T be doing or where we SHOULDN'T be going.

    I also agree on the note of the failure of the judicial system to lock up the hacks, crooks and thugs.

    Maybe I should consider it, too - next semester I'm going to start taking classes in Little Rock at UALR . . . a woman was just abducted from a parkinglot and murdered there last month.

    No reason not to protect yourself. Better safe than sorry.

    One can never repeat this often enough: Never.ever.ever let someone abduct you. If you do, you're dead. Make your stand and die trying. It's obviously not always possible to do a thing because one is unconscious, but if you're on your feet, die right there if you have to.

    Not just women, I think people in general should have awareness of surroundings and knowledge of self defense, be that a gun or hand to hand combat or what have you. It's a f'd up world out there yo, some people who are...well not really people in a sense. It's good advice to get a CCW and carry a gun on you, better to use it as well. Go to a gun range and fire it, get used to it, learn to use it safely.

    i disagree with your premise
    our law enforcement system is a growth industry
    it would seem that we are incarcerating those who commit victimless crimes while allowing criminals who perpetrate actual harm against others - those who are much more difficult to identify and apprehend - to remain on the streets

    That's pretty much the point he was making - too much focus on the wrong people which enables the worst people to be "out"

    Remember to get all the range time you can and to practice drawing from your choice of carry mode. Also at home with an empty gun and dry firing when ever possible to build muscle memory.
