Well done Sheriff Wright! It's nice to run across a Peace Officer from time to time instead of a law enforcement officer.

Excellent advice for those with the constitution for it. Elenore Roosevelt carried a firearm; if SHE needed to fend-off rapists, EVERY woman should carry LOL.

I dont agree.Not every woman needs to carry a gun. There are woman who are serial murders too remember.Carrying a weapon is a very serious subject and people should really think about the subject.Level out the good and bad.Plus:I think that it could actually put more lives at stake,a guy could take the gun and kill her with her own gun or she could shoot at false acqusashions.

And just what do you think the guy is going to do if she has no defense? You seem to think we as gun owners are idiots. There are millions of us but very few of us are apart of the gloom and doom the media puts out. Ownership of guns in this country is over 200 years old and yet we thrive and prosper. The only thing proven and I mean PROVEN is where gun rights are removed crime goes up or didn't you check your facts before posting?

Aside from what a previous poster has remarked regarding your above statements, I have to question your motivations.
.
People —especially cops— have had their guns taken from them, if only because they neglected to consider matters. Would you think it proper to disarm cops because a few of them didn't follow procedure?
.
And, carrying a gun IS NOT a serious subject, anymore than the subject of what to wear whenever to wherever. More it is just this: How to wear, and ~not~ when, or if.
.
Self-defence is serious subject, and it NEEDS to be uppermost on everyone's mind, because when push comes to shove, you're likely not to get a second chance when it comes down to moment of truth.
.
In this world, you can't trust ~anyone~, period. Danger lurks everywhere, and it strikes at the most inopportune moments.
.
Now, if you desire to toss caution to the wind, that's your right, but PLEASE DO NOT be attempting to convince others that they should forego any thought to self-defence.
.
Let me leave you with this advice:
.
Four things:
.
[1] No man-made law has =EVER= stopped anything from happening.
.
[2] Safety is a FRAME OF MIND and =NOT= a condition of existence.
.
[3] You can =NEVER= be safe from anyone or anything, no matter what you do, how, when or where you do it, or with whom you might do it: YOU CAN =NEVER= BE SAFE.
.
[4] We live in a violent universe, and all around us —including within ourselves— violence is the order of the day. PREPARE FOR IT.
.
Internalize the above, and learn to face reality head on.
.
If you refuse? You WILL become a victim of your own volition, because: YOU CAN =NEVER= BE SAFE.
