Guns can be used against expert owners

newsroom@islandpacket.comMarch 3, 2014 

To all those interested or concerned about concealed weapons permit holders carrying guns, especially into restaurants and bars, I invite you to read the articles and anecdotes in the Second Chance Vest catalogue.

This bulletproof vest catalogue has hundreds of testimonies praising the vest. But read closely. Fully 94 percent of these policemen, sheriff deputies and state police quoted in the catalogue had their service revolver taken from them and used against them.

These are trained gun experts. The revolver did not protect them, did it? Furthermore, it creates a nightmare for law enforcement personnel.

Think about it. Is this really what you want?
