Our constitution was written to help protect our rights and our freedoms. The second amendment states that you as an American citizen have the right to bear arms. By way of Florida state law, you have the right to defend yourself, your family, and your house and home.

This is laid out in the Castle Doctrine. The Castle Doctrine states that if you are in your home and an intruder attacks you, you are under no obligation to retreat. You are allowed to defend your home and inhabitants with deadly force if necessary.

While no one ever wants to be in the situation where they are forced into the decision to kill or potentially be killed, but it is comforting to know and be able to stand in your own power.

These are crazy times we are living in. Florida now has over 5000 cases of COVID-19/Coronavirus and many counties are beginning to restrict travel and implement lockdowns. This is causing businesses to close temporarily and residents to be out of work.

Historically when people are out of work they become more desperate than usual. This can give way to the criminal element feeling like they need to find alternate ways of bringing in money. Crime rises when unemployment is up.

Because of the state of things in the world and in particular the growing concern here in Florida, many are turning their thoughts to that of home protection. This can be in the form of cameras for monitoring as well as to firearms and smaller items like tasers, and zappers and even pepper spray to ensure their own safety and wellbeing.

At First Pawn of Naples and Lehigh Acres, we carry a wide array of pistols, shotguns, handguns, and other self-defense items. Florida does not require a permit to purchase a firearm but there is a waiting period of three days between purchase time and pick up for all firearms. This is sometimes known as a cooling down period.

First Pawn now has two locations right here in Southwest Florida – Lehigh Acres and Naples.
