My ol' Grandpa said to me: "Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin'!"



I don't carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.



I don't carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.



I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.



I don't carry a gun because I'm evil.
I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.



I don't carry a gun because I hate the government.
I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.



I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.



I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.



I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.



I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because - unarmed and facing three armed thugs - I am inadequate.



I don't carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.



Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves, and each other.
Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone else in to clean up the mess.



Remember, when seconds count - the police are only minutes away!

Crackshot,
Excellent post. I carry a gun for all the same reasons and because it is my Constitutional right. Take care...

Hallelujah

Well spoken (or written)

I am with you all the way on this, except that our Founding Fathers wanted us to be able to overthrow any government that failed to serve the citizens of our country. In case anyone like the FBI, CIA, etc., etc., are listening I am not advocating an overthrow of our current leaders. Whew, I am glad I remembered to add that disclaimer.

Anyway, great post, and thanks for reminding us.

I carry a gun just in case I need it.
Hopefully we won't need guns to get the government we need.
The cost of our freedom is eternal vigelance.

Off topic; I carry a gun or guns just in case when it is legal in my country. It means going or coming shooting- and hunting places. Cool

Just want to point out that the Second Amendment just recognizes that you already have a right to be armed, it does not somehow "give" you the right. Call it a "natural right" or "God given right", whichever you prefer. If there was no amendment we would still have the right.

I agree with the sentiments of those who have posted. I have exercised my CCW rights since 1967. All the best...
