During a guest hosting spot on Dana, Sara Gonzales and I spoke to NRA’s Cam Edwards, host of Cam and Company, who gave us the run down of what the future holds for the nation with Texas’s oncoming passage of constitutional carry.
The NRA host explained how constitutional carry actually prompts people to become more educated about firearms, and seek out their conceal carry licenses.
“Honestly, the number of concealed carry licenses hasn’t really declined dramatically in states that have passed constitutional carry,” said Edwards. “Arizona, for example, actually saw an increase the number of concealed carry holders, even after they passed permitless carry.”
“It’s real common sense,” continued Edwards. “If you’re a gun owner, and you’re carrying a firearm for self defense, you want to be comfortable with that firearm, right? You’re going to seek out the training. You’re going to go to the range. You’re going to educate yourself on how to be safe, and responsible, and competent with that firearm. And you don’t need the government to tell you that you need to do this, you do this because you want to be able to protect yourself if you ever have to.”
