Mothers Who Carry

Mothers Who Carry

As a mom, your biggest priority is your children; not only are you responsible for making sure they’re fed, clothed and healthy, but you’re also responsible for their safety. You have to teach them everything from how to cross the street as a child to how to deal with threats as they grow up. That’s a big job—and the world around you doesn’t make it any easier.

Mother Who CarryPart of keeping your kids safe means keeping yourself safe as well, and that’s not always easy. Assaults and other violent crimes in 2017 totaled 3.1 million—up 17% from 2015. Those assaults aren’t limited to certain cities or situations; that’s the total number from all over the United States.

Children are also often targets for criminals. In 2017 alone, the FBI’s National Crime Information Center took 464,324 reports of missing children. Many of them are murdered within three hours of their abduction; others go on to be sold into trafficking. While these statistics are disturbing, they’re things that good moms are aware of—and seek to protect themselves and their children from.

For many moms, the choice to carry a concealed weapon is an easy one. There is no better way to be able to protect yourself and your kids than to have a gun on your person. Threats can come at any time in any form, and if you don’t have a way to handle those threats, then you and your kids could be victims.

Some moms choose to carry something small, like a .380. Others go with a 9mm or .40, maybe even as high as a compact .45 caliber. They might carry on their hip in a traditional holster, on their ankle, or maybe even in a concealed carry purse. Whatever their chosen weapon and method of carry, they are taking it upon themselves to be prepared for anything—including a threat to themselves or their children.

Every mother is different, and the gun that one mom chooses might not be the best option for you. If you’re a mom looking for options to protect your family, the handgun you choose should be something that’s not only comfortable in your hand, but that you’ll be able to train with. Carrying a gun you aren’t intimately familiar with will not help you; training is essential to being proficient enough to protect yourself and your family.

Mothers are known for their fierce willingness to do anything to protect their children; that may include being willing to train with and carry a handgun every day. Thousands of moms pack a weapon right along with their diaper bags and kid-friendly snacks, and their children are safer because of it. This year for Mother’s Day, we salute the moms who carry.
