(TacticalNews.com) – An enormous responsibility accompanies the purchase and carry of a gun. You will need to make the correct decisions to stay out of trouble. Here are a few things that simply don’t mix with carrying a concealed weapon.
Drugs and Alcohol
Drugs, both prescription and illicit ones, or anything that may interfere with your decision making should not be coupled with carrying a firearm. The reason is simple. You can cause serious harm to yourself or others if you’re under the influence of any mind-altering substance.
It’s unlikely that you’ll be carrying a firearm if you were diagnosed with a mental illness. However, not everyone seeks assistance for help in coping with depression and other severe mental health conditions. Left untreated, they can cause serious problems for gun owners and those around them. For that reason, it’s best to avoid carrying a firearm if you suffer from any adverse conditions, particularly in the absence of meaningful therapy.
It’s no surprise that you can’t take your firearm onto an airplane unless it’s in a checked bag and you adhere to any other applicable rules and regulations. And it’s unlikely there will ever be a time when airlines or federal law will allow you to carry a weapon on board with you, whether you’re carrying it or if it’s in a bag.
All responsible gun owners and everyday carriers should know the gun laws on the local, state, and federal levels. Check out these CCW tips on how to navigate the law as explained by a top lawyer.
