New Orleans Citizens Taking Protection Into Own Hands

posted on September 17, 2015

New Orleans resident Richard Angelico was the victim of a carjacking on Monday night. Now, he’s refusing to be a victim again. Angelico is taking his protection into his own hands and is planning to apply for a concealed-carry permit. 

He’s not alone. With violent crime rising in New Orleans, there’s been a spike in people learning how to shoot and obtaining carry permits. 

The Shooters’ Club in Harahan has seen a significant increase, especially among women and younger shooters. Kiera Carey is one of them—she’s been learning to shoot with her fiance’s gun. Carey plans to get her concealed-carry permit soon as well. “If someone does try to approach me and I don’t feel comfortable, I have no problems pulling it out at all,” she said. Firearms instructor Devvin Burgess agrees: “They realize it can happen to them, and they want to be prepared.”
