Nobody likes conflict, but knowing how to resolve one is a crucial life skill for everybody.


Guns carried by bad guys in public endanger public safety, and permissive concealed carry rules increase the likelihood of violent encounters between good guys with guns and bad guys with guns.


Carrying concealed, loaded firearms in public areas can swiftly escalate routine confrontations into lethal altercations, resulting in catastrophic, lasting damage to innocent lives.


Historically, practically every state forbade or severely restricted the carrying of hidden, loaded guns in public. These were among the first firearms laws enacted in the United States. Some states began to grant law enforcement discretion to issue permits (often referred to as “CCW” or carrying concealed weapon permits) to people who passed a background check, received firearm training, and/or demonstrated a specific need to carry concealed, loaded guns in public in the late twentieth century. However, at the request of the gun lobby, many states have significantly relaxed the qualifications for these permits in recent years.


Whether you carry a pistol or another type of self-defense weapon, the purpose of self-defense is to live and flee without being injured by deterring or preventing hostile conduct. It is not to win a battle or to injure someone else. The best defense, in reality, is to avoid harmful people and locations in the first place.


Anyone possessing a handgun permit must always attempt to avoid disagreements and take the necessary procedures to resolve any disputes that arise without resorting to violence.


  • Stay cool when conversing with the other person to avoid a confrontation.


  • If the situation becomes out of control, get out as soon as possible.


  • If you are unable to avoid a conflict, employ a conflict management strategy.
