WOMEN DON’T HAVE TO BE VICTIMS WITH A TEMPORARY CONCEALED PERMIT

25 October 2017 by Online Carry Training

A total of 85 percent of domestic violence victims are women, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website.  Seventy-six percent of stalking victims are female, according to the National Center for Victims of Crime.

In Tennesee, 45-year-old Stephen Delauter and his wife, Lee Ann, 33 had a history of violent fights. Stephen was an abusive husband that had been arrested for domestic assault against Lee Ann in September 2016, and there was an active order of protection prohibiting him from contacting her.

Stephen chose to ignore that order of protection. Last weekend, he parked his car half a mile away from Lee Ann’s home. He then walked over to the house, broke in and assaulted her with a knife. He also fired multiple rounds at her with his semi-auto.

Fortunately, Lee Ann keeps a firearm in her bedroom. She managed to grab it and return fire, shooting Stephen. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In another incident in Santa Clara County, CA, William Brady III,  an armed stalker, got a big surprise after breaking into the home of the woman he was targeting.  

Brady walked up to the Los Altos Hills home armed with a handgun last Friday. The woman called 911 to report that Brady was outside the home where she was staying with relatives, had a gun, and he had been stalking her. The woman was still on the phone when Brady broke into the home and opened fire on the woman and two other residents. One of the residents grabbed a handgun and fired back at Brady, hitting him multiple times. Brady fled the scene.

Police arrived and found Brady, wounded, outside the home. They also found his handgun. Brady was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and transported to an area hospital.  The man who shot Brady, a relative of the woman, won’t face any charges.

Women who are victims of domestic abuse and stalking victims often live in fear because they can’t control their own lives. They tip toe around their husbands or partners trying to do everything just right so they won’t upset them and tip off another round of abuse.  They may be forced to move, change jobs, change cars, avoid social contact in order to escape their stalker.

Women must be able to defend themselves. The most effective way of doing this is by using a gun. By the time the police arrive to enforce a restraining order, it is often too late. Many women become concealed carriers because they are in clear danger and are vulnerable.

In some states such as Michigan, Louisiana and Kentucky, domestic violence victims are already allowed to receive a temporary concealed weapons permit for 90 days under the current state law to help protect themselves.

Those who apply for the temporary permit must meet all of the same requirements as those who obtain a regular concealed carry permit. They must pass a background check, be photographed, pay a fee and attend a approved firearms training course.  The applications are fast tracked and usually approved within a few days assuming the applicant meets all of the requirements. Like the regular concealed carry permit, these temporary concealed weapons permits are reciprocal in the other U.S. states that recognize a regular concealed weapons permit from that issuing state.
