Why carry a gun?  Aren’t the reasons obvious!  If not allow me to enlighten you.

  • A gun is the best single tool for protecting your life and the lives of your loved ones if a violent attack is imminent.
  • Violent offenders stay away from homes where people are likely to be armed.
  • There are bad people in the world who cannot be talked out of trying to harm you.  But they will turn and run when confronted with a firearm.
  • Thugs see you not as a human being but as an obstacle to getting what they want.  They will think nothing of harming you and will harm you unless you have the means (firearms) to prevent this from ocurring.
  • Trouble does not make an appointment.  You must be prepared.
  • Proficiency with a firearm can save your life.
  • We are each individually responsible for our own safety and well being.

You must know your enemy.  The criminal is not your friend or your next door neighbor.  He does not hold the same moral values that you do and has no qualms about assaulting, raping, robbing or murdering you to achieve his objectives.  He understands violence because it is one of his predatory skills and survival tools.  No normal societal interactions will stop this individual.  Do not be a victim.  Become skilled and proficient with your weapons of choice as they one day may save your life.

  1. If it comes down to me or them, I’m going to do everything possible to make sure that I am the one still standing and it is much easier with a firearm!

  2. because we can…better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6…

    I agree Cheryl. Certainly makes defending yourself and your family much easier if the situation arises where it is needed.

    I believe that every law abiding citizen should be reguired to own a gun and be trained to safely use it. It’s a system that works very well in Switzerland where they have one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

    If most people were carrying guns, this would be a very polite society. Crime would so infrequent that news bureaus would have to look for other things to report. What a concept.
