WHY CARRY A GUN?


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 cowgirl; I carry a gun because, when I die and go to Heaven, I want to be a cowgirl.

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 because police do not protect you from crime; they 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 ass whoopin'!

  1. Good reasons! However no justification is required to arm yourself. It's a right, and Americans have choice to use that right.
    I support the police and respect what they do, but they come in minutes, when seconds count.

    1. Exactly! And I agree with Ted Nugent - the SECOND AMENDMENT is my concealed carry permit!

  2. Yes, I agree. I've seen many of Ted's videos from his guest appearances on talk shows on this subject.
    Besides, who doesn't appreciate a little "Stranglehold" :D
