I recently received my concealed weapons carry permit for Rhode Island. During the lengthy permitting process, I had a number of excellent and most informative conversations with police officers, which were worth their weight in gold. One such conversation was about the dangers we knowingly and unknowingly face on the streets today. One officer told me that since 9/11, the sheer number of threats is through the roof.
Here in Newport, RI there have been bomb threats at the public schools all week leading to evacuations yesterday. And that’s only what the public hears about. It’s time you think long and hard about protecting yourself and your family in every legal way possible. I am.
