In a recent story from Sarasota County in Florida, Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at 2932 Goodrich Avenue around 4am for a person who had reportedly taken a fall. When the paramedics arrived, the
The last thing you'd expect is for a hard working person to have to face. Up and ready to catch the bus before the light of day, many people feel safe in their cities due to their personal values, great situational awareness, and a firearm by their side with a concealed carry permit. Even in
A man was legally carrying his weapon on State Street in Madison, Wisconsin last week. State street is a popular restaurant and nightlife area for the thousands of students and residents that live in the bustling college town.
