more women in iowa are choosing to carry a concealed weapon.yesterday cbs 2 news took a look at *why women are getting their conceal carry permits., cbs 2 news anchor karen fuller takes s u to an actual class and explains why it's the first step in a life long journey - it's a story you will onlsee on cbs 2 news. news. firiri a weapon can feel invigorating, empowering - and yes, frightening.yet - more
5:56 am
concealed carry permits to protect themselves and their loved ones.but before you holster up and go out in public - you must first take a conceal carry class."we're just as skilled and educated as men, whoever, if we take the class and know how to use it. i think the more people who have guns and know how to use them, the safer we'll be." joni litts and april davidson both have their conceal carry permits.we caught up with them at midwest shooting - a hiawatha gun shop and range. davidson says she chose to get her permit because of her family's routine."my husband had a weird schedule so i was driving six hours to central missouri alone with my children, often.""avoidance? we're safer r we can avoid violence."ernie traugh is a local gun instructor who teaches conceal carry classes for both men and women.i recently took his class to see what conceal carry education is all about."we definitely go over things you have to have an understanding of, you know,
5:57 am
can and can't carry...reason able force and deadly force and making people understand the ramifications of using a firearm."we discussed the very definition of a "gun" - scenarios of shooting an intruder - and escaping with your life when defense is not an option.but there are places you're not legally allowed to carry a firearm such as any u-s post office - school grounds - and federal buildings.there are also people who *cannot get a non- professional concealed carry permit no matter what -- those under 21 years old - felons - military dishonorable discharge - and some aliens. the laws might be easy to understand...but if you ever have to use your gun, there's an *emotional toll that can't be taught."it's gonna change your life. you're e going to become a news story and you need to prepare yourself for the changes you have to make in your life, whether it's
5:58 am
for yourself in many people's cases."in iowa, unlike other states, this kind of training isn't necessary for conceal carry, but experts will tell you, it's critical."even a five-hour class can't prepare you for the sights and sounds of bullets flying."if you've never experienced it, or gone through ani training, you might not know what to look r in real life."trauau says the likelihood that you'd use e your weapon is extremely slim, but he says you shouldn't underestimate the training. when it comes to guns, you can never know tomuch."i think most people leave my class having a better understanding of the iowa laws, and they come away with a clear picture that this is the beginning, this isn't the end of a journey. there is no end to this journey. after you complete the conceal carry class - you receive a rtificate of completion. cocoletion.the next step is turning in a copy the local sheriff's department - undergoing a background check - and if all is well - you'll receive your cceal carry license in the iowa, the permit is good for five years.
