Come and see what the Lord shall do

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

We all get discouraged.  Even David, a man after God’s own heart, was frequently wearied by his circumstances.  But we Christians should take heart. Our God is neither deaf nor inattentive.  When you are struggling with despair, remember the Lord’s awesome power. As Asaph encouraged in Psalm 77: 10 Then I thought, “To this I will […]

Mississippi’s knife laws are already covered in depth on this website but readers can find another source of information on the knife laws of Mississippi as well as Florida, Georgia, Arizona, Alabama, Texas, and Mississippi here.

Supreme Court Rules Judges Broke The Law

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Gun Laws, Legislation

On June 7, 2018, the Mississippi Supreme Court strongly rebuffed a sua sponte order entered by the chancellors of the Fourteenth Chancery District which purported to define a “courtroom” but was in effect a prohibition on enhanced concealed carry licensees carrying a firearm anywhere in a courthouse (as opposed to a courtroom). I am pleased […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Carrying a gun, Gun Laws

I was recently re-reading Mississippi Code Annotated section 45-9-101, our concealed carry license statute, and noticed for the first time that it does not permit an unlicensed individual to just shove a pistol in his/her waistband or pocket without a holster.  Perhaps because I would not recommend this in the first place, I had not […]

In case this might be helpful to some of my readers, I have compiled a few thoughts and recommendations below. Decide […]

Grant Cunningham has a good article discussing carrying a firearm in a workplace. In my experience, his points are valid even if they are not universal. It’s simply not possible to carry a full-size pistol in the professional world; even a small gun in the most carefully tailored clothing is hard to hide. This will […]
