  1. Saw this on a thread here and I really like it. I am not sure if ALL of it is accurate, but the general idea is HOW I believe!!!

    Why I Carry
    a Gun



    My old
    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 ... 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 because I'm a cowboy.
    I carry a gun because, when I
    die and go to heaven, I want to be a
    cowboy.



    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.

    Police do
    not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime
    after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the
    mess.



    Personally,
    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an
    ... whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously
    brilliant)

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

Didn't work, they became the United States of America and signed their declaration of independance in July 1776.

    You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear
    politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in
    the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
    gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.


    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!


    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control,
    please remind them of this history lesson.

    With guns,
    we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.


    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because
    they knew most Americans were ARMED!

    If you value your
    freedom, please spread this anti gun-control
    message to all of your friends.


    The
    purpose of fighting is to win.

    There is no
    possible victory in defense.

    The sword
    is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than
    either.

    The final
    weapon is the brain.

    All else is
    supplemental.

    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A
    GUN
    SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERYADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.

    SWITZERLAND HAS THE
    LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE
    WORLD!!!

    IT'S A NO BRAINER!

    DON'T LET
    OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO
    MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
