Why I carry a Gun

 

My Grandfather said to me:
"Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles, and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a butt-whoopin'."

I don't carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep myself 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 am 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 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'd like 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 cannot be everywhere, and I mean no disrespect.

Police cannot totally protect you from crime; they investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess, like the funeral home or the county prosecutor.

Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a butt-whoopin'.
