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!
