    Except for the political jab "War mongering Republicans". Why any political reference was included was a poor decision, otherwise, very well stated!

    Why Grandpa carries a gun
    scroll way down
    PEOPLE ASK WHY?

    Why 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 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.
    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 ass whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

    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 WW II 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 EVERY ADULT 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.

    I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!
    If you are too, please forward
