So you have decided to get a Pistol Permit.

Congratulations on making what could be one of the most important decisions in your life. The choice to become an armed citizen is a big step towards long term safety and security for yourself and your loved ones. It is important to remember that this experience is only what you make of it, and just the beginning of a long list of what is needed to become a responsibly armed citizen.

The first things to consider when obtaining a pistol permit are the requirements. Go down to your local police department or resident state trooper and pick up an application. They may redirect you to the town or city hall, but once you have the application, read through the requirements carefully. Specific details, including costs and fees, can vary from town to town so knowing the details in advance will make your application process smoother. If you believe you are eligible, and can handle the costs involved, the next step is to look for an approved training class.

Selecting a class is one of the most important and difficult decisions to make, and there are a number of considerations involved. Most states require a class or other form of training in order to obtain a permit. Approved classes consist of a classroom and a live fire portion and are primarily offered by instructors certified by the National Rifle Association (NRA). A simple internet search will yield a number of options, including the websites of individuals and businesses. The NRA also offers a website (www.nrainstructors.org) that lists NRA approved classes.

The Instructor

NRA instructors are plentiful in most areas, although the quality of their courses varies greatly. It is important to remember that it only takes a two day seminar to become an instructor, and many instructors may only teach a few classes a year, if any. Be wary of those who operate out of…...

...of the myth. This is the case because the “truth” of an IR myth depends as much on how empirical evidence is organized into a coherent story about international politics as it does on the evidence alone. This is a central problem with how critical theory is usually practiced in the discipline of international relations. International Relations Theory takes this problem seriously. How it takes it seriously is by shifting its analytical emphasis away from looking for “empirical evidence” to support the “truth” of an IR myth toward an investigation of the organization of “the facts” that make an IR story about international politics appear to be true. Doing critical IR theory in this way means we have to suspend our usual preoccupation with getting to the “real truth” about an IR myth, tradition, or theory and ask instead, “What makes a particular story about international politics appear to be true?” Or, to put it somewhat differently, “how does the ‘truth’ function in a particular IR myth?” It is not accidental that this book as my answer to how to teach IR theory better should focus on stories and how they are told. If the world is made up of “facts” and stories that organize those “facts,” then there is no more important skill to pass on to students than to make them better readers and writers of stories, better interpreters of not just “the facts” but of the organization of “the facts.” With this in mind, International Relations Theory does not try to be a comprehensive......

Getting Help

...Getting Help It is important to get help when you need it. Without the proper help people would have trouble surviving. Many people feel that asking for help shows a sign of weakness so they will not ask for it. If more and more people would realize that it is okay to ask for help a person’s life could be made a lot easier. Asking for help just means that you care enough to get the proper help or the right answer instead of just ignoring a situation and trying to figure it out on your own. When asking for help don’t think of it as weakness but of believing enough in someone else to give you the advice or information that you are looking for. Help can come in many forms, from a ride to a doctor’s appointment, a trip to the grocery store for supplies, picking up someone’s medication to just being by someone’s side to hold their hand in a time of need. Help can also be given when someone is having trouble answering questions that they need to find the answer to. Never be afraid to ask a question, no question is to dumb or stupid except the one that you do not answer. Not every question will be answered in the way that you would like for it to but you will need to just take the answer in and decide what is the best route to go on when accepting the answer or not....

Getting on Contract

...Getting on Contract: This process starts with the buyer in defining the requirement with clarity. The process for the buyer begins just prior to the receipt of the procurement request. The Contracting Officer should assist the program personnel with adequately describing the need for the RFP and reviewing the acquisition plan in its entirety for completeness and accuracy. The CO should also ensure that enough funds have been allocated for the requirement. Once the acquisition plan has been approved, the CO will be developing the solicitation. Once all sections of the RFP have been written and approved, the CO will post the resultant RFP to FedBizOpps for any and all contractors of interest view the RFP in full details. If FedBizOpps is not available, the CO may email the RFP out to Offerors identified in its market research. Once the RFP has been posted, the CO should allow companies enough time to propose responsively to the RFP- which could be from 15 to 45 days depending upon the size and complexity of the requirement. During this time, the CO should answer any questions that all Offerors may have regarding the RFP. This should be done in writing but can also be done in an open forum such as a pre-proposal conference. Once all questions have been answered, the CO should post these questions and answers on FedBizOpps for all Offerors to see and if needed, amend the RFP. The process from the seller’s point of view begins once a notice is synopsized on......

Should We Permit Euthanasia

...Should we permit Euthanasia [pic] Sleeping Angel on a Bed of Clouds A doctor’s function has changed over time. In the past, the doctor was a person who besides being your friend treated the diseases. Now a doctor is a stranger who combats diseases, but he/she is not always your friend. What will never change is their constant struggle against death. However, their job is not only to prevent death but also to improve their patient’s quality of life. Many times there is nothing a doctor can do to prevent a patient from dying if the patient has a terminal disease; all he/she can do is wait for death to arrive. This waiting time can be very painful for both the patients and the people who surround them. Not practicing euthanasia at the request of the dying person is violating a person’s rights, creating an economic burden, interfering with a doctor’s job, and increasing suffering. First of all, deciding if you want to be alive or not is a personal decision. Neither the doctors nor the government has the power to decide if you should live or not. Since it is not their life and they are not in your situation, they cannot make that kind of decision for you. It might sound like suicide, but again, that is our problem, not theirs. They give us the liberty to decide our job, our family, our religion, and even our sex preference. Why should they not give us the right to decide if we want to live or not? That should be the first right before all the ones I have mentioned. It is not......

Getting Ready

...Getting ready to do strategy In the early 1990s, the Allegheny hospital education and research foundation (AHERF) launched a strategy to become a large integrated health care delivery system. AHERF was not the only health care provider pursuing this strategy. In fact, this was the dominant strategic direction proposed by industry an-alysts and managers alike. Within a few years, AHERF was one of the largest integrated health care providers in the United States and its CEO was hailed as a visionary. By 1998, AHERF was also bangkrupt. In the early 2000s, Sumsung Corporation launched a strategy to revitalize its consumer video electronics business. Long regareded as a low- quality brand, it sought a quality leadership position in the fledgling market for digital home entertainment, including high definition television (HDTV). Samsung embraced digital light processing (DLP) technology. Cheaper and fatter than plasma, more expensive and thinner than traditional rear projection televisions (RPTVs) , Samsung’s DLP televisions offered a picture quality that equaled or beat either alternative. Samsung’s first generation DLP sets garnered rave reviews from speciality magazines and web sites. The technology appealed to critical early HDTV adopters who did their research and ignored the brand reputation. In fact, samsung’s reputation has improved since the launch of DLP. It has successfully entered the market for high-end plasma market. It takes little imagination to come up with a...

...Justice (DOJ) – Being from Texas where there is no secret about one’s personal firearms, I found interest in this topic because of the many people I know that own firearms. This proposal will have an affect on many Americans depending on what state you are in. 2. Describe the proposal/change. (10 points) The purpose of the proposal is to identify the definition of a “pistol”. Determining the definition will establish carrying permits and regulations for each state. 3. Write the public comment that you would submit to this proposal. If the proposed regulation deadline has already passed, write the comment you would have submitted. Explain briefly what you wish to accomplish with your comment. (10 points) As a Texas native, I have many friends and family who own firearms that are unsure about the definition of the “pistol”. Understanding what constitutes a pistol will help firearms owners across the country determine which firearms are legal in different locations. Millions of dollars are spent every year on firearms in the U.S., many don’t know if they are buying pistols or other kinds of firearms. Determining the definition will also ensure which weapons can be taken to selected gun ranges around the country. 4. Provide the "deadline" by which the public comment must be made. (If the date has already passed, please provide when the deadline was). (5 points) This proposal expires on 12/1/2014 5. a) Once you have......

Getting Away with Murder

...Getting away with Murder There are different laws in each state that allow citizens to protect themselves against a criminal. However, Florida’s law Stand your ground is giving todays citizens a right to kill. Every day we read about a new case where this law justifies the killing of another person. This law was made up to protect criminals and people who choose to kill when they could have easily avoided the whole situation. Shoot first and ask questions later should have been the name of this law. Walking home from the convenient store, playing your music in your car at a gas station, or even going to the movies and asking someone to keep it down has become a scary task. How is it possible that you run the risk of getting shot or killed by doing these everyday normal tasks and the person responsible for your death gets off Scott free with no repercussion for their actions? Having the right to protect yourself when you are seriously in harm’s way is necessary, but useless acts of violence is what todays people are doing and justifying it in court with the Stand your Ground law. This is turning innocent people into targets for angry individuals to take their frustrations or dislikes out on. I want to have the right to walk down the street with a hoodie on and not fear for my life. Gun laws have been restricted over the U.S since the Sandy Hook shootings; however Florida still hasn’t caught up with these actions and still provides an out for over zelles gun......

Comparative Essay Pistol or Revolver

...Semi-Automatic Pistol or Revolver Mark Cartwright ENG 121, English Composition I Instructor Lisa Tietler June 04, 2012 Semi-Automatic Pistol or Revolver With more states issuing “right to carry” weapons permits and the expansion of the firearms market; people are looking at semi-automatic pistols or revolvers in order to fill their concealed carry defensive needs. Both firearm platforms are made for protection purposes, but each one has their limitations and advantages. Citizens consider many aspects when choosing a handgun for defensive purposes such as ammunition capacity, ease of operation, reliability, and conceal ability. Many factors affect people when choosing a handgun for defensive use, but in the end it comes down to personal preference, the mission intended for the firearm, and skill level of the person when deciding on whether to pick a semi-automatic pistol or revolver for concealed carry. Semi-automatic pistols tend to hold more ammunition than a revolver. Most semi-automatic pistols carry anywhere from six rounds to eighteen rounds, whereas, a revolver usually carries anywhere from five rounds to eight rounds depending on the model. Semi-automatic pistols have replaced most revolvers in the inventories of police departments and military units due to issues concerning magazine capacity. Most individuals tend to go towards a semi-automatic pistol due to the amount of firepower that can be brought to a gun fight versus a revolver. However,...
