LOUISIANA STATE APPROVED CONCEALED CARRY CLASS
Simply watch the local nightly news and you will quickly realize how unsafe the world in which we live has become. The chance of being killed in New Orleans is over 20 times as likely as being a soldier in Afghanistan. Besides the escalation in violent crime, there now exists the ever-increasing risk of becoming a victim of a terrorist attack. No one knows, when leaving their house in the morning, if today will be the day that they will become a victim.
How concerned are you about CRIME . . . where you work, live or play? How prepared are you against a violent attack? Can you adequately defend yourself, your spouse, your children, your loved ones against armed robberies, home invasions, car-jackings?
No matter where you call home in this city; Lakeview, Uptown, Mid-City, the Irish Channel, the 9th Ward, the East, the Westbank or where you go to work in the Metro Area; New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, Laplace, Chalmette, Mandeville, Covington, Madisonville, Slidell, Hammond . . . the increase in violent crime should be of great concern. Why not learn to become your family’s first responder? If you are an employer, why not offer to provide your employees the proper training with GunSmartNOLA’s Defensive Handgun Classes?
The U.S. Constitution, under the 2nd Amendment, recognizes our right to own firearms. But just because it is a right, why should YOU consider arming yourself?
The obvious answer is to be able to defend yourself. With ever-increasing 9-1-1 response times, you cannot simply wait several minutes for law enforcement to arrive when you only have mere seconds. Regardless if you are elderly, female, disabled, small in stature, in poor health, or simply outnumbered, a firearm in trained hands puts everyone on a more level playing field at a minimum and might actually give you the advantage. The majority of self-defense cases involving a handgun do not end in a shooting. Criminals are looking for an easy target and simply displaying a handgun will more often than not scare the criminal away.
