PEOPLE ASK WHY?

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 donkey 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 donkey whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

 

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------------

 

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. >From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenian Christians were slaughtered by Muslims, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

------------------------------

 

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

------------------------------

 

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.

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.

 

I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

If you are too, please forward.

UP here in the rural UP, it's understood that everyone probably has a gun of some sort! Also a very high percentage with CCP's

That said; A local Ishpeming man was murdered in his pawn/gunshop a couple of month's ago...

 

WOW!!

 

You must have set the lurk record!! LOL

 

Joined 4/16/09 and only one post .. this one!!

 

I wonder if the entire population of the UP would be more than the population of Detroit.

 

Most people in Detroit don't own a gun. Most people that are spotted with a gun, in Detroit, are assumed to be criminals unless proven otherwise.

I walked into a McDonalds for a snack one day about 10 years ago. Plenty of people in there, of course, including one guy dressed normally and waiting in line in front of me. He looked perfectly normal, except for the rifle slung over his shoulder. Everybody ignored him -- it was obviously a common sight in this town.

 

That was in Geneva, Switzerland.
