The Fastest Golf Carts South Florida Can Provide

When one inquires as to where to obtain the fastest golf carts south Florida can provide it makes sense to look for the answer in the city of Port Charlotte. Allow me to explain my line of reasoning. First of all, most people are well aware of Port Charlotte’s well earned reputation for fast golf carts. But the question remains: does Port Charlotte have the fastest golf carts? To answer this question I had perform a certain degree of in depth research.

RESEARCHING THE FASTEST GOLF CARTS SOUTH FLORIDA CAN PROVIDE

When one starts to research any topic in these modern times the temptation is to first turn to the internet. Interestingly enough, this is not the most effective means of determining where one can obtain the fastest golf carts in the southern portion of the Floridian peninsula. Certainly the internet can be used to buttress other sorts of research. That is, internet research can “fill in the gaps” where other forms of research is lacking. But internet research (as I said previously) should not be the primary source of information. So then, what should be the primary source of information? That (my friend) shall be the subject of paragraph number three.

There are multiple sources of research (other than internet sources) that I have found to be the most useful when looking for the fastest golf carts in South Florida. First of all, nothing beats good old fashioned walking the beat and physically observing the reality of the situation. To truly understand the speed of a golf cart one does not read about fast golf carts. Rather one must get behind the wheel of a golf cart and take it for a spin. It is in this actual experience that one will find the answer to these questions that would otherwise have plagued him or her.

 

The News Regarding Using a Massage Therapist Murray for Self Defense

It is not unheard of for a person to use a massage therapist Murray for self defense. Despite the fact that this is not unheard of many people still might not know how this might come to be. But with the use of a little imagination we all might come to see how this situation could manifest. For example, supposing a person is being attacked by an assailant while at the same time a massage therapist from Murray happens to be walking by. One might imagine that the victim, in an effort to protect himself grabs a hold of the massage therapist and positions the massage therapist between him and his assailant.

SELF DEFENSE WITH A MASSAGE THERAPIST MURRAY

There are other situations where a person might use a massage therapist to defend himself. For example, supposing the massage therapist happens to be a big and strong person. One might imagine the victim calling upon the massage therapist to come to his aid. The therapist might not have to be big and strong to perform this function. If the massage therapist has a license to carry a firearm he or she might use his or her weapon to defend the victim as well.

One might also picture the victim of an assault running from his assailant and taking refuge in a near by massage parlor. This of course assumes that a massage parlor is located near the location of the assault. This also assumes that the massage parlor is open for business at the time and that the massage therapist inhabiting this massage parlor is willing to come to the defense of the victim of the assault. In conclusion, as stated in the first paragraph it is not unheard of for a person to use a massage therapist for the purpose of self defense.

No Self Defense News is Good News with the Texas License to Carry

In the world of the Texas license to carry no self defense news is definitely good news. What we mean by this is that the laws in the state of Texas regarding obtaining a license to openly carry a firearm in public places are some of the least restrictive regulations in all the United States of America. For this reason, it is the considered opinion of the Self Defense News blog that no change in the law (that is, no news) is a good development. In other words we want things to stay exactly the way they are in Texas.

WE WANT THE TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY REGULATIONS TO STAY EXACTLY THE WAY THEY ARE

The Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution reads as follows:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

This amendment has been interpreted to mean that the Federal and state government cannot restrict the right to bear arms. Obviously this does not mean that the right to bear arms cannot be regulated as it clearly is in that in order to obtain a firearm a person must undergo a background check in many cases.

The fact that the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution makes reference to a “well regulated militia” has never been interpreted as a bar for a citizen who is not a member of a militia from obtaining a firearm. Technically, the language of the Second Amendment does not require militia membership in order for the Second Amendment to apply. The plain language suggests that a well regulated militia is the reason for not infringing upon the right to bear arms but this is not a requirement. Moreover, the language does not distinguish between Federal and state regulation.

Massage Therapist Salt Lake City

If one happens to be looking for a professional massage therapist Salt Lake City, there are many places to choose from. Some might seek a therapist who is trained in a variety of modalities and techniques. Some might seek a therapist who happens to specialize in an innovative, unique method of structural massage classified as Integrated Structural Massage. They might want the goal of the therapist to be to facilitate homeostasis (also known as balance) in the body so as to counteract dysfunction that can pull the body out of natural alignment.

WHERE TO FIND A MESSAGE THERAPIST SALT LAKE CITY

Some might even seek a message therapist who uses her feet with bars for support. Some might desire a therapist who combines compression with vibration to access the deeper layers of tissue in order to release tension. They would want this because releasing this tension helps the body move back into its natural alignment. People generally want a message session to be fully customized to meet the customer’s specific needs. If the customer happens to have a specific area that need more focus he or she would want the therapist to work on that area with first with her hands and then followed by the Integrated Structural for the rest of the time. On the other hand if the customer would like just a regular massage he or she would want a therapist who can do can do that as well.

Regardless of the type of message the customer wants essentially it is important that the message therapist caters to his or her needs. When the customer’s needs are properly catered to by the message therapist the customer will have a satisfactory experience. And when the customer has a satisfactory experience the world becomes a much better place indeed.

Obtain a Texas License to Carry in 2017

It is the considered opinion of the Self Defense News Blog that each and every one of its readers obtain a Texas license to carry in 2017. We stand firm with this opinion even if the reader of the Self Defense Blog does not actually reside within the boarders of the state of Texas. You may ask in response to this assertion why the Self Defense News Blog holds this opinion. That question is certainly understandable because the Texas state license to carry a firearm is only applicable within the jurisdiction of the state of Texas. As such, one might legitimately wonder why a non resident of Texas would want to obtain said license.

THE REASON FOR A TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY

There are several reasons why a person who does not live in Texas would want to obtain a license to carry in the state of Texas. One reason might be that the person in question has future plans to travel to Texas and wants to carry a firearm when he or she gets there. Another reason might be that the person in question is a collector of licenses to carry and needs a Texas license to complete his or her collection.

Once a person obtains such a license he or she will then be able to carry a firearm within the state of Texas. This license allows the person who holds said license to carry a firearm in most public places. There are some exceptions and we invite all Self Defense News Blog readers to research the law to find out just what these specific exceptions happen to be. Once the reader of the Self Defense News Blog readers learn about these exceptions they will then know where they can carry a firearm and where they cannot carry a firearm.

Texas License To Carry Legislation

Directly related to the legislation regarding obtaining a Texas license to carry, the Texas State Senate Bill 378 articulates a Stand Your Ground clause. This provision states that a person who is involved in a defensive shooting has no “duty to retreat” before being legally justified in shooting his or her assailant. The “trier of fact” (the jury in a jury trial and the judge in a non jury trial) may not consider whether the person retreated when deciding whether the person was justified in shooting. The purpose of this legislation is to provide a person with additional freedom in protecting themselves.

TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY FOR SELF PROTECTION

The right to be secure in one’s person is a very important right enshrined in many different pieces of legislation on both the state and federal levels. Most notably the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution has been interpreted to provide the right to bear arms for any U. S. Citizen. A technical reading of the Second Amendment arguably does not enshrine this right but rather allows for right to bear arms in connection with a well regulated militia. This has never been the official reading of the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.

Any State level legislation must be legally consistent with the provisions of the U. S. Constitution. If the state level legislation is not legally consistent with the U. S. Constitution it is in danger of being struck down as being unconstitutional. Technically, the law is still in effect until it has been determined to be unconstitutional. This requires an actual case in controversy. In other words, someone must bring suit in a court of law to challenge the potentially unconstitutional law. Moreover, the person bringing the suit must have standing to do so which requires some kind of damages as a result of said law.

Give the Gift of a Texas License to Carry

Although one citizen cannot bestow a Texas license to carry a firearm upon another citizen the gift of knowledge as to how to apply for such a license might very well prove to be the most wonderful gift of all this Christmas season. The reason for this is quite simple. That is, the knowledge that a person can defend himself or herself against an assault or home invasion even if that assaulter or invader be significantly larger in size. This is the Christmas promise of a firearm. It evens the playing field and makes equals of each and every one of us.

Texas License to Carry … a Gift!

Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh and a gun! We all know quite well what gold is. This elemental metal has been used as a currency of wealth throughout history and across cultures. Frankincense carries a sweet savor unto the Lord. Myrrh is the Holy Spirit of that trinity in that it is the more mysterious of the three. But the gun, that fourth member of the trinity (if you know what I mean and I know that you do gentle reader) is the one gift that is the true gift of this joyous season.

As the day approaches when we shall all be steeped in sage and onion we must prepare to receive the incarnation of the savior. We must prepare to receive the three wise men carrying their gifts to the manger. We must prepare to receive that criminal who seeks to invade our home with the searing kiss of red hot lead. This is the gift that a license to carry can bestow upon its recipients. And what a Merry Christmas it shall be to know that we are all safe in our homes around the hearth with the knowledge that we are as assured of self protection as we can be.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Self Defense News!

New Legislation Regarding Texas License to Carry

Recently, the Texas state legislature has promulgated new regulations regarding the Texas license to carry requirements. Specifically Texas State House Bill 910, will become effective on January 1, 2016. In this particular piece of legislation the Texas State Department of Public Safety will begin to issue a modified design of the Concealed Handgun License (also known as CHL) which is now referred to as a License To Carry Handgun (or LTC). The newly designed license to carry will contain all of the same security features as those that have been used on the previously existing Concealed Handgun Licenses.  To see examples of licenses that are currently in circulation it might be educational to see the  License to Carry sample.  Should any potential applicant desire to receive the newly designed license, that individual can request a replacement license by submitting the form known as the CHL 70 which is currently located in the downloadable forms section of the Texas State Department of Public Safety website.

Applicants who may be looking to find specific information regarding what are the various training requirements that are available related to the Texas license to carry a firearm regulations can find this sort of information (as well as other useful information) in the Frequently Asked Questions (also known as FAQs) webpage found on the Texas State Department of Public Safety website. The specific link is located on the website under the heading FAQs. Be sure to read the other frequently asked questions for information that you might not have thought to ask.

Applicants who are looking to find training material related to the use of restraint holsters as well as particular methods employed to ensure a secure carrying of openly carried handguns can be found on the Texas State Department of Public Safety website under the heading “use of restraint holders.”

Self Defense at a Distance

The editorial board of the Self Defense News.net blog knows intimately well that many of our loyal readers are people who are interested in obtaining a Texas license to carry. In many cases they are interested in obtaining this license because they want to be able to protect themselves in the event that they are attacked by another person. They are well aware that there will always be another person who is stronger or a better fighter than they are and the only way to even the playing field is to own and know how to effectively use a personal firearm.

Along with obtaining a Texas license to carry the many readers of the Self Defense News.net blog are interested in receiving instruction on different self defense techniques. Unfortunately, the selection of a practical and effective self-defense program in this day and age can be an arduous and confusing process. This is true because there are many, many schools and businesses that claim expertise in the area of self defense that they may or may not actually have.  Moreover, much of the training typically involves years and years of lessons and instruction in the art of hand-to-hand grappling or fighting.

The editorial board of the Self Defense News.net blog wishes to emphatically make the following point.   Hand-to-hand combat with an assailant is the very last situation you ever want to be involved with. This is absolutely true regardless of a person’s experience level because the odds of being overpowered and seriously injured (or worse) are increased exponentially during the course of hand to hand combat.  For this reason alone we strongly encourage training courses that teach self defense and the defense of loved ones from a distance.  This distance is often referred to as the “Survival Gap” or “Reactionary Gap.”

Texas is a “Shall Issue” State

The state of Texas concealed handgun licenses law took effect in 1995 which made them what is known as a “Shall Issue” state. Many people want to know more information about this Texas license to carry statute. The fact is that the great state of Texas is a does in fact issue Concealed Handgun Licenses both to residents who live in the state of Texas as well as to non-residents of the state.

Applicants for a Texas license to carry can apply for the license on line. Once an applicant logs on to the website they will be able to fill out the forms available for download. Subsequent to completing the aforementioned forms the applicants will send them by mail to the Texas Department of Public Safety. In addition to finding the forms on line applicants may be able to procure the forms from a licensed instructor.

The address to which the forms should be mailed is as follows:

Texas Department of Public Safety
Concealed Handgun – MSC 0245
PO Box 4087

Once the Texas Department of Public Safety receives the form the application will then be processed. It is at this point that the applicant can schedule fingerprinting appointment at a government office designated for that purpose.

As previously mentioned, non-residents may also apply for a Texas license to carry. However, non residents must provide a document  known as a proficiency certificate (TR 100) which that person will receive on completion of an official handgun proficiency course which has been approved by the Texas Department of Public Safety. All approved courses will be taught by a certified instructor. For new licenses, the certificate must have been issued within two years. However, for renewal licenses, the certificate must have been issued within six months.

Non-residents will also have to provide a color copy of your state issued identification or drivers license.
