MISSION STATEMENT
Provide law-abiding citizens with the necessary tools to protect themselves, their
family and their property from disaster, the threat of harm or loss of human life.   
Assist law-abiding citizens into knowing the boundaries of the law and how to use
the tools of self defense in public and within their homes.  Ensure that ever
student leaves a course with new muscle memory techniques and a solid
knowledge of self defense.
We firmly believe and support the fact that every law-abiding citizen has the right
to self-defense under the Second Amendment.

Amendment II:  A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the
right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. "Congress have no power to
disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the
birthright of an American. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either
the federal or state governments but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands
of the people." - Tenche Coxe, Feb. 20, 1788.

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the
United States Bill of Rights that protects the right to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on
December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.

Two U.S. Supreme Court rulings in 2008 and 2010 clarified the scope of the Second
Amendment.
In District of Columbia v. Heller, the Court ruled that the Second Amendment
protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to
use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. It
further held that three Washington, D.C. Ordinances banning usable firearms in the home
were in violation of the Second Amendment. In McDonald vs. Chicago, the Court
determined that the Second Amendment limits state and local governmental authority to the
same extent that it limits federal authority.  The Supreme Court also stated that its ruling
was not to be taken as an indication that all firearm restrictions are unconstitutional.

By definition, a
“Concealed Handgun” means a handgun, concealed weapons are weapons,
especially handguns, which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control.
Carrying a concealed weapon is illegal in most states unless the party with the weapon is a
law enforcement officer or has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
