Re: The Second Amendment---Broken down
The only thing that kept me from jumping up and applauding GMFWoodchuck was hitting my head on the ceiling fan. Well said!
I don't carry a gun because of my state or constitutional right. I carry a gun because I don't feel safe any more. I believe the police will basically respond in time to find evidence and make reports. There are too many bad people out there who are driven by greed, lack of morality, lack of conscience, drug and alcohol addiction and a lack of respect for laws and common decency. This I will not abide. I will not be victimized, I won't be intimidated and I refuse to live in fear. I will not wait until it's too late to find out the police went to the wrong address or didn't want their coffee to get cold or their donut to get stale. I refuse to be victimized by criminals who repeatedly navigate through the justice system as if it were a revolving door. As we get older, we have to make harder decisions. Many times these decisions involve the life or death of ourselves or a loved one. It never gets easier, but at least I hope to live to get older!
I will not stand by and willingly see myself or my family led to a gas chamber at the whim of a Government in whom I have lost all respect and trust. The only thing I possess that will bring any sort of fear to anyone are my guns. When I can no longer speak for myself, they will speak for me and some day they will have to listen!
