‘And I carry:’ See the faces of real Americans who carry firearms

The mainstream media and progressive politicians would like the public to believe that those who carry weapons are a somewhat crazy bunch of oddballs. Minnesotans for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms wants to dispel that image with its video, “And I Carry.”

The video depicts techies, teachers, students, businessmen, moms and grandmas — people in the mainstream — all of whom legally carry firearms.

A concealed weapons license requires a rigorous background check — felons, druggies and lowlifes need not apply. Here’s the video:

One of the fastest-growing groups applying for concealed-carry permits are female real estate agents — chicks with guns, according to (WHAT SOURCE??). And for good reason. They’re often showing an empty house to a complete stranger they know nothing about.

According to the Santa Barbara Sun:

In October of this year, a 29-year-old sales agent in Ohio was attacked and robbed by two masked men in a model home.

In 2011, a 27-year-old real estate agent was shot to death in Iowa during an open house.

A 67-year-old Ohio woman was strangled, robbed, and killed in 2010 when two men, targeting agents, set ablaze the house that she was showing.

In 2008 a 71-year-old Wisconsin grandmother and real estate agent was attacked and killed by a man posing as a prospective buyer.

In fact, 26 real estate and rental professionals were homicide victims in the workplace in 2012, according to the most current data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and hundreds more are victims of non-fatal attacks on the job each year.

One of those women is “Amanda,” described by the Sun as “an attractive, self-assured 30-something Santa Maria real estate agent,” who purchased a .45-caliber semi-automatic handgun, complete with pink and white crystal hearts on the grips.
