William McKinley awoke early Saturday morning to his dogs barking at something outside. He never came back from his investigation. McKinley was found in his driveway with multiple stab wounds. Police theorize that McKinley went outside and confronted two suspects who broke into his car. Valerie McKinley says her dad owned a gun and had a concealed carry permit.
Apparently, though, he didn’t have it with him when he went outside to investigate early Saturday. “It doesn’t seem like he knew there was any danger,” she said. “I don’t get it. I know if he saw someone out there he wouldn’t have come out unarmed.”
His daughter brings up an important topic that I push on a regular basis; carry, carry, carry.
While I hate using a real-life tragedy such as this to nail home the point, it’s exactly the reason why I feel so strongly about carrying at home. More importantly, carrying all the time and not only when you think you might need your firearm.
No one ever knows what will happen until it’s too late. Don’t be that person.
