I saw this on Florida Shooters Network (FSN) and thought it would be appropriate here.


"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 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 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. When seconds count, the police are minutes away. 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."

"Free citizens must protect themselves. Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin!!!"

Some will bury their head in the sand and pretend that they can be protected by law enforcement but I'll help ease the pressure on the LEO's by looking out for myself and family.

I'm in no shape to fight 1 young guy let alone a couple. Times are such that an attacker will not stop at just an ass whooping. I simply need a last ditch weapon to defend myself should the need arise.

I carry in order to win arguments, get ahead in traffic and to annoy my liberal parents. :D

But seriously, nobody is responsible for my safety but me...to my mind, it only makes sense to ensure that I'm able to fulfill that responsibility.

Why do you carry?

I, I, I don't know.

Is it because we've allowed the world to become a dangerous place?

Is it because we've allowed society to break down in it's values?

Is it because we're not of the mindset to put the criminals to death but instead keep letting them out to commit more crimes against humanity?

The list goes on, but you get the idea. The real answer is I've been a control freak for a very long time. I like being able to control my immediate environment if necessary. :D

Because I wish to avoid the fate of those in Mumbai, who were disarmed by the government and who died like sheep at the slaughter.

I want at least a chance to fight back.
